Blue Bend Ranch is arguably one of the most fabulous ranches in the entire State and undoubtedly a shining jewel in Southern Oklahoma.
The Ranch entrance lies at the end of a dead end road near Tishomingo in Johnston County, Oklahoma and is easily accessible from the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, Oklahoma City, or Tulsa.
One thousand seven hundred and sixty eight acres (1,768) of beautiful Bermuda grass pastures, rough granite boulder outcroppings, lush food plots, and mature timber grace the landscape along one of Oklahoma's most sought after river systems.
The Blue River meanders through the ranch and displays beautiful, pristine spring-fed water flowing tens of thousands of gallons per minute. From deep calm pools, to fast moving ripples, the tranquility of the river simply calms the soul. With almost two miles of river frontage, this ranch boasts one of the longest stretches of privately held Blue River in the state.
Perched on a hill near the center of the property is an exquisite master cabin with an outdoor living area. Just a short walk down this hill is the guest cabin, also very tastefully decorated and equipped to handle an abundance of guests. Both cabins come fully furnished including appliances.
The sale will be turn-key and include all equipment, hunting blinds, feeders, and stands. Equipment is covered and protected under a large metal building appropriately located just across from the shop building.
For recreational purposes the ranch has been utilized to run stockers during the summer months but the property is also well suited for a cow/calf operation. The current ranch manager lives on the ranch and has meticulously taken care of the property for over 32 years. He and his family would appreciate the opportunity to discuss managing the property for the new owner.
Scattered throughout the ranch are 17 stock ponds and Peter Sandy Creek which traverses the northeast portion of the property before it merges with the Blue. The current owner performed soil testing to build a potential 17 acre lake on the property.
While the river is the star of the show, the wildlife take a close second. Among other species, native Smallmouth bass thrive in these waters and during the fall, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation stocks trout on the neighboring property for the fisherman eager to drift a nymph rig in hopes of a big rainbow take on the fly.
Strict management of the whitetail herd has proven to produce trophy caliber deer by any hunters standards. The varied terrain, excellent food sources, devoted sanctuary areas for bedding cover and fresh water all contribute to the habitat necessary for these outstanding quality deer.
Extremely rare and exceedingly beautiful, the river captures the essence of the Blue Bend Ranch and to experience this scenic segment of the Blue is a blessing to be treasured. Don't miss your opportunity to own a true live water legacy property.
*Please make note of a landlocked 20 acre parcel within the boundaries of the ranch, of which the Seller owns an undivided 1/2 interest.
