The Riverside Retreat on the Arkansas is a fantastic opportunity for an outdoor enthusiast who wants to establish a business based on all the tremendous recreation surrounding the property. The 5,256± square-foot building is situated at the confluence of Texas Creek and the Arkansas River, creating access to nearly 600 feet of live water frontage.

The 1.61± acre property includes a recently renovated building with road frontage along the well-traveled US Highway 50. A new roof, electrical, and HVAC system are just some of the updates that have been completed. The building had once served as a restaurant, a gift shop, and a small grocery offering. The building now includes a quaint apartment space that could be used as a vacation rental. The remaining portion of the lower level could be finished as another apartment or two, each with access to the spacious backyard along the Arkansas River. The top level of the building has two restrooms and an area plumbed to accommodate a three-compartment sink. The rest of the top level is currently set up with dining and retail spaces in mind, but the sky is the limit for business opportunities.

This unique property is located in the Big Horn Sheep Canyon stretch of the Arkansas River, a very desirable stretch of water thanks to its mild whitewater rafting conditions and gold medal trout fishing. Anglers can walk, wade, and even float as they enjoy the well-populated river with nearly 5,000 trout per mile. Keep your eyes open for Rocky Mountain big horn sheep or the occasional moose. There are over 100,000 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and other public land immediately surrounding the Riverside Retreat, which includes 45 miles of marked 4×4 and ATV trails. Big game tags in this area include big horn sheep, whitetail, mule deer, elk, pronghorn, and bear, with GMU 58, 691, and 86 meeting at the property.

Riverside Retreat on the Arkansas offers a wide variety of business possibilities, including an outdoor recreation shop, hunting base camp, angler’s getaway, brewery, eatery, or vacation rentals.
