About this property

Completely surrounded by National Forest land and bordered by wilderness on one side, the Oleo Ranch near Lake City, Colorado is a mountain resort without peers. Fully operational as an off-grid property with a main ranch house, bunkhouse and seven roomy rentable cabins, Oleo Ranch has a fabulous reputation among guests, many of whom return year after year. Located squarely in the heart of some of the best hunting and fishing in Colorado, the Oleo Ranch is well-positioned to maintain its coveted reputation for customer satisfaction for generations to come. Situated at 10,500 feet between Slumgullion and Spring Creek Passes, Oleo Ranch occupies 165.4 acres of mountain meadows, aspen groves, spruce forest and riparian lands bordering Cebolla Creek. The creek itself is one of the ranch's finest natural assets, as it offers 1.5 miles of excellent small stream fishing for wild brook and brown trout that grow up to 16 inches, with many in the 10- to 13-inch class. Cebolla Creek boasts excellent water quality and a huge aquatic insect base that keeps its trout fat and happy. Both beginning and experienced fly fishers will find much to love about Cebolla Creek. In addition, 5 small ponds have been developed along the creek that can support larger trout, some of which reach trophy proportions. Oleo Ranch is also a natural corridor for enough trophy big game to excite even the most jaded of hunters. With the abundant water on the ranch, the property is a magnet for elk, mule deer and moose. Rare indeed is the day when one or all of these species is not seen on the ranch. Oleo Ranch is located within Unit 66 and very near Unit 76, both of which are limited draw units renowned for trophy elk. A very limited season is available for moose in these units, but the moose population is thriving and hunting opportunities are certain to increase in coming years. Accommodations on the ranch have been designed to maximize the wilderness setting and experience. Eight log cabins are scattered throughout the property, and range from 800 to 1200 square feet, and can accommodate from 4 to 12 guests each. Electricity does not exist on the ranch, but all lighting, heating and refrigeration is propane-powered. This makes Oleo Ranch a perfect place to literally and figuratively unplug, a feature it uses to the best advantage for those seeking a retreat from the stress of civilization.
