I wouldn't call it "flat" per se. More rolling. And, within an hour of there, you have a lot of fishing options. So, as a home base, it would be very cool
11 mile canyon is 6 miles away, again, great fishing
Spinney and Antero are 32 minutes away (dream stream too obviously)
Arkansas river is 1 hour from there to Parkdale and the Bighorn sheep canyon section
I know of at least 3 cutthroat streams off of Pikes peak that are about 40 minutes from there
South Platt at Deckers is an hour drive
Tarryall section of South Platt, lake and river are 25 minute drive
Fariplay co and a couple great little creeks are about 50 minutes
and there is a few dozen other small creeks and multiple sections of the Platt in that same hour range.
Now, I just went out an hour looking. If you would be willing to do 2 hours/ 2:30 hours that brings in the Gunny, Saguache, Blue, Eagle, Colorado.....see where I'm going.
In other words, yes, you should spend time there and just explore.
