Description

The undeniable beauty and the unreplaceable qualities of the Government Springs area has captivated residents of the Western slope for generations. Following the 1879 Ute Indian uprising, Colonel Mackenzie, alongside six companies of soldiers, marched into the Uncompagre Valley to enforce an agreed upon peace. Temporary encampments became permanent and The Cantonment of the Uncompagre, later Fort Crawford, was formed. Indelibly, the natural springs, breathtaking views, and towering pines south and west of the fort captured the affections of the garrison. A frequent watering ground for federal livestock, both the springs and the surrounding area came to be known as Government Springs.143 years later, The Government Springs Ranch still captures the imagination- ponderosa pines, quaking aspen, and spruce trees cast long shadows over 60-70% of the ranch. Herds of elk, deer, turkey, bear, and mountain lion roam the understory while the snowcapped peaks of the San Juan mountains tower above the horizon. With six miles of national forest frontage, an abundance of trophy-quality game and readily available tags, the ranch is a superb hunting property. Unlike almost any other hunting/cattle ranch, Government Springs has year-round, paved road access, boarders a Greg Norman Golf Corse, has full buried utilities, and is within minutes of a regional airport. Fly into Montrose, have dinner at Elk Mountain Resort (the neighbor to the north), hunt elk in the morning, and maintain a 3-oclock tee time. This is a legacy ranch in a rapidly growing community. As an investment or a get-away, the Government Spring's Ranch is one of the finest Colorado has to offer.
