Lazy River Ranch exemplifies the Clear Fork River's beauty and historical significance in this area of Texas. Large neighboring ranches surround this unique 345-acre property creating ideal conditions for hunting and providing much sought-after privacy. Entering the custom entrance down a manicured road into the heart of the property, you will find an excellent build site on a bluff, with long-range, panoramic views overlooking the diverse landscape. This scenic homesite is outfitted with rural water, electricity, and a septic system awaiting a future new build. Improved interior trails provide access to most of the property and river frontage. Flowing as live water in this part of Texas, the Clear Fork River snakes along the banks up to a small cabin offering year-round enjoyment for camping, fishing, or hunting. Just above the river is roughly 88 acres of prime tillable farmland currently rotated with wheat and sunflowers to sustain the vast wildlife this property supports. Thick native grasses produce preferred seeds for the quail while providing excellent grazing for cattle. Along with the river, numerous ponds and deep draws offer reliable water for wildlife and livestock.
Lazy River Ranch also functions as a thriving cattle operation with excellent fencing, cattle pens, and cross-fencing and even has the river fenced off to keep the cattle from wandering during the dry years. If the Clear Fork River could talk, it would have much to say about this area. Stories of outlaws, Comanches, Fort Griffin, Camp Cooper, The Great Western trail, and other are plentiful. Across County Road 288 is an additional 151.3 acres available for purchase.
Agent's Comments -- River properties in this area and of this quality do not find their way onto the open market very often. A primary necessity for a productive cattle or hunting ranch is always water; this property is well supplied. A deep water tributary of the river is accessible for fishing out of a boat or kayak. This ranch is truly one of a kind, offering quality hunting for every season along with miles of river to explore and fish.
