Cottonwood Springs North is a private riverfront ranch with 1,054± acres. Two miles of Pecos River run through a scenic canyon with access to a rare road into the river bottom. There are off-grid cabin sites with spectacular views of the river below. The river forms nice pools around giant boulders and is lined with mature cottonwoods. Dramatic side canyons also hold spring-fed pools in their bottoms.

Historically this ranch is the southwest corner of the Jose Perea Land Grant which got contested after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hildago. The grant was held until it could be recognized, thus explaining the many stone ruins and long runs of old stacked stone fences on the property. For centuries prior, Native Americans chipped arrowheads on the protected ledges overlooking the river. Ancient Puebloans made this place their home, making for great artifact hunting.

This is beautiful canyon-edge grass-country interspersed with Mesquite, Pinon, Juniper, Oak, and Cottonwood accented with rock formations. Fabulous bass fishing and turkey hunting with both mule and whitetail deer, quail, and waterfowl. Abundant wildlife, including mountain lion, bobcat, beaver, fox, the occasional bear, and much more. The Pecos River tailwater below Santa Rosa Lake is an excellent warm water fishery. Quality water like this is hard to find, especially in Eastern New Mexico.
