About Oak Creek Homes For Sale

Oak Creek seems tucked into the rocky, shrubby landscape, but opens up enough to provide space for a town park and some breathing room for homes.

The Soroco School District serves the towns in South Routt. The middle and high schools for Soroco are in Oak Creek while the elementary school is in Yampa.

The main street through Oak Creek is lined with mostly older, clapboard buildings that house a drugstore, a coffee shop, a gas station, a liquor store and a variety of restaurants. Oak Creek residents pride themselves for their restaurants, which entice hungry Steamboat Springs' residents to make the drive south.  Oak Creek residents are enjoying a revitalization of its downtown central business district.

More and more young families and first-time homeowners who can't afford Steamboat or who are looking for a smaller town are buying property in Oak Creek.  And even though some people commute half an hour to Steamboat to work, REALTORS say that the commute can sometimes be a selling point, as it gives people a chance to catch their breath and distance themselves from the rush of the day.

Gail Schisler has lived in Oak Creek for almost 18 years and says that just because the town is small, it doesn't mean there isn't anything to do.

"There are lots of activities going on. You can keep yourself busy with volunteering or with after-school activities with the kids. And there are lots of good restaurants," Schisler said.  "It's a very tight knit community. You always say 'hi' to everybody."
