Own a piece of the Old West! Beautiful vacant land south of historic Hartsel, CO, just a little over 2 hours from Denver. Land is off grid and ready for your cabin or motor home/camper/tent. The location is in the heart of Southpark, a high mountain valley with a colorful history, 50 miles long and 35 miles wide, surrounded by mountain peaks. Perfect spot for peace and quiet and outdoor recreation. Hartsel is 41 miles from Breckenridge and 7 miles from fishing and boating on the Antero Reservoir. Roads are well marked and maintained by the county.
Founded in 1880, Hartsel is close to the geographic center of the state and is often referred to as "The Heart of Colorado". Samuel Hartsel’s 100,000 acre cattle ranch included the Hartsel Hot Springs as well as the Estates of Colorado development. Originally inhabited by the Ute and Arapahoe Indians, the name South Park started to be used in the 1840s by hunters and trappers since the valley was the home to vast herds. Now, outdoor recreation is the main draw to the area. Hunting is also popular on nearby federal lands and state wildlife areas.
