The current Owners have been approached by High End RV Resort Operators about the Tree Farm part of the property being an opportunity for high income potential as private RV camp sites. They have also had Wedding Venue Operators look at this property as the perfect location to perform weddings due to all the Trees and River access, and also due to the lack of Wedding Venues along the Front Range.
