The 51.4 acres of land associated with this camp property is one of the finest parcels you will find. Nestled along the eastern edge of the magnificent Anthracite Creek Valley, this property has spectacular views of the Raggeds Wilderness which begins only a few miles east of this land. The land contains beautiful creek-side meadows lined with majestic cottonwoods, with trails meandering through scenic river rock. The land is evenly split with approximately 25 acres of riparian habitat and meadows with the balance of the land being comprised of thick forested hillsides of spruce and fir. Elevations range from a comfortable 6500' along the river, to over 7000' on the highest timbererd hillside. This elevation is ideal as it provides a milder climate than the higher altitudes, while still receiving ample snowfall for snowshoeing and snow mobile activities. There are numerous trails along the creek as well as hiking trails in the evergreen forest. The lawn area and some of the meadows are kept green and moist from the extensive irrigation system which covers much of the grounds. This land also borders a small section of BLM lands which further ensures your ultimate privacy.
