Yampa Stillwater Ranch is only 4 miles from the small community of Yampa. The ranch is ideally set up as a summer livestock operation. Hay production is very good on the 80+/- acres of irrigated meadows. An additional 120+/- acres are sub-irrigated pastures. The water rights on the ranch are excellent and increase the ranch’s carrying capacity. In addition to the livestock, the ranch is attractive to elk and deer. With the lush grass pastures and the cool, northeast facing slope at the south end of the ranch, elk hunting is very good.

The Yampa Valley Regional Airport is within an hour of the ranch. The airport has excellent service to Denver with summer and winter direct flights to several cities around the nation. National Forest lands dominate this part of the county and access to two National Forests is a short drive from the ranch.
