$466,900   •   203 Acres

River Run Ranch is 203 acres of excellent wildlife habitat located just west of the Indian Nation Turnpike on the north bank of the South Canadian River. It is just a 75-mile drive from Tulsa, 115-mile drive from OKC and a 170-mile drive from the north DFW metro. More importantly for the outdoor enthusiast, it is located seven miles upstream of the Lake Eufaula backwaters in an area where the North and South Canadian draw close to one another before entering the lake. When we first visited this property, there was water everywhere and we initially decided to market it as “The Swamp”. In some places it was ankle deep, in other places you needed a boat to get through it. After that initial visit, we thought that this property would be flooded all the time. However, over time, we have seen different aspects of the ranch that we didn’t suspect on that first trip. There are times of the year that much of the property is dry, except for the deeper waters of the oxbow lake and sloughs. Consequently, we decided to rename the property River Run Ranch. This tract still has 4000 feet of South Canadian River frontage and part of the old riverbed on it that can hold 14 acres of shallow water, but the areas with the thick growth of willows, cattails and other wetland hydrophytes dry out for part of the year making it possible to manage and improve the property with trails, foodplots and feeders for a wide variety of wildlife. Obviously, ducks and geese love this type of setting as it gives them a natural food source on natural water with plenty of places to settle in and feed. In addition, the heavily vegetated areas serve as wonderful bedding areas for a wide range of wildlife. We set up a trail camera on one of the ATV trails and got thousands of pictures of deer, hogs, coyotes, and bobcats. We knew that there were a tremendous number of tracks on the property but it was hard to imagine the steady progression of animals moving past this single point. This set of photos helped us to understand what we had missed about this property initially. It isn’t just a great waterfowl property; it is a tremendous wildlife property. Its secluded position along the river with the surrounding sloughs and heavy vegetation enables this property to carry a much higher population of animals than normal. That translates to more fun for those who want to hunt year-round. The number and size of wild hogs is amazing, there are tons of deer also. The number of bobcats and coyotes we got on camera was also much greater than we normally see on ranches. In addition, we’ve come to realize how much a family can enjoy spending time on the huge sand bar beach along the river. It’s a great place to go camp, swim, ride ATVs and fish. Also, access is no longer an issue as a new deeded access easement that runs just west of the turnpike before turning through a large hayfield to the property was granted by the neighbor to the north. This deeded legal easement makes getting in and out much easier. We are still wary of saying you could build a cabin on the property due to the potential for flooding in the wet season but, if you are open to a RV site or to building an elevated structure, then we certainly have some thoughts to share with you regarding those possibilities. If you are looking for the ideal recreational property that offers waterfowl, deer, hog, and predator hunting as well as a great ATV, camping, fishing and swimming spot on the river then please call Sean at 580 320 5791 .
