I want more information on this property
You can buy your own Colorado River RV lots, within two stones throw of the Rio Grande River, with county road access, 1000 feet from a National Park. All for just $250 down and $49/month.
This land is offered “owner financed”. As long as you can make the payments and will take care of the land, you qualify.
It is a fascinating place, out of the Wild Wild West, and a great place to have for a refuge. The county allows you to bring in your RV and live on your quarter-acre property and even build a storage shed for your RV. You can see the picture of one already on a nearby lot.
There is a view of the old river bridge, about a thousand feet from the lots . This is a single car bridge, which goes through the national park and into Antonito. You can also see the wood foundation of the old cable bridge, which was built long before you and I were on this planet. This is the only area along the Rio Grande River which tapers downhill at a slow 5 degree incline. The other areas have a cliff drop-off of 20 to 30 feet straight down into the river. If one’s dog falls off the edge, it goes down the river. Not so with this area. It is like a beach where one can wade out and go swimming or fishing with fishing boots. You can use your boat for fishing and you do not need a permit for your boat.
Looking at the pictures, one can see an RV parked on a nearby. This are where your lot is located. The lot is near the River.
When looking south, you see the Bridge. If you are standing on the bridge and looking out to the north, you can experience the flow of the River.
The North West Corner of Unit 26 is where Highway 248 and the Rio Grande River intersect. Lot is within walking distance of the river.
