Rock Island Ranch gets its name from the railroad that previously traveled through the area. This 312.36-acre ranch is truly a gem in the current market; because of how coveted the Clear Fork of the Brazos is, a property with Clear Fork frontage rarely becomes available. With 3,400 feet of river frontage, Rock Island Ranch is a remarkable recreational property. Large pockets of deep water are filled with different kinds of fish, and these pockets of water consistently remain in dry times. The Clearfork begins just southeast of Snyder, TX, in Scurry County and dumps into the Brazos River right north of South Bend. Rock Island Ranch sits 8 miles before the Clearfork drains into the Brazos, meaning a significant amount of water is on this portion of the river. Fishing and recreational activities such as kayaking are present, providing hours of adventure. Outside the river banks lie some of the largest bull mesquite in the area. Light underbrush and massive trees make up the northern portion of the ranch, while the south is a bit more rugged with thick cover and scattered live oak clusters. Past the large bull mesquite cover lies a big post oak thicket with ample browse and an abundance of acorns, creating an ultimate habitat with ideal bedding grounds, abundant food supply, and a uniquely reliable water source.
Agent's Comments -- Rock Island Ranch is a raw and wild river property with no junk or oil and gas equipment creating the ability to build one's recreational paradise. Finding river properties in Young County is extremely difficult, even more so if it touches the Clearfork.
