SDCR has covenants and is designed for residences although 90% of it is open and not settled consisting of some permanent residences and many camping sites 

It is required to get permits for building from the county - that includes driveways and septic systems

There is no regulation which prohibits camping, although recently the county defined the frequency that you can camp.  Sanitation and open fires are an issue.  

You must follow the county regulations 

We urge all prospective buyers to read the covenants thoroughly and be familiar with them.  We follow them and we expect you to also, if you purchase from us!

While you are purchasing land from us, we do not allow building projects, living on the land, or storing of equipment, supplies, or vehicles.  We do allow short-term camping.  All county Rules and Regulations must be followed regarding camping and permitting.  If you get our permission, you can put in a driveway and/or camping pad, with a permit from the county.  There might be a few exceptions, such as keeping a fire-pit on the property which we can allow on an individual basis.  


There are approximately 9,000 parcels of land in SDCR.

Reserved for Bridgette & Greig C. Until June 7th, 2022 
SDCR Unit E-3, Block 292, Lot 6649 -- 11,400’ Elevation --  5.5 Acres.  $23,700 Cash or Fast-Pay ($11,700 down and balance paid within 20 months) -- or $27,000 Financed, with $10,800 down and 54 monthly payments of $300.

This lot is accessible from approximately Memorial Day through December. It is located in an area with beautiful alpine meadows and Bristle Cone Pine stands. This area is a favorite for its commanding views from what feels like the "Top of the World."


There is about 100' near the road, with a less-than-10% slope, that could be used for camping or building.  The lot is approximately 800' in length from the road (elevation 11,400') to the southern corner (elevation 11,260').  In late Auguest and early September, several types of mushrooms grow beneath the trees and in the meadows in this area.

There is a very nice cabin located across Forbes and east of Moose, but for the most part this area is used for camping and recreating during the warmer months.

Directions to SDCR E3.6649:  Please Note: These directions lead to an alpine parcel above 10,000'. This parcel is not accessible by vehicle with muddy or snowy roads.  Portions of Forbes have a very slippery silty clay surface and it is easy to slide into the ditch.  If these conditions are present, please chain up or forget it.  From Fort Garland head south on Colorado Hwy 159 for about 10 miles and after passing Mile Marker #22, turn left at Jasper Road.  Take the next right, go 1/4 mile and turn left at Rito Seco Road.  Head east on Rito Seco for about 5 miles, passing some Battle Mountain Gold Mine buildings on your left.  Then turn right on Forbes Road.  Forbes Road is the main road into the high country.  Zero odometer as you turn right on Forbes Road and go up the mountain for about 8.8 miles, just past Moose Road on your right.  Lot begins on left side of Forbes Road and runs about 580 feet along the road to the northwest corner.  See plat and gps maps below.
