The Ranch on Roaring Creek is located in southern Grady County just NE of Rush Springs, Oklahoma. This generously sized 1,190 +/- acre ranch is abundant with water, native grasslands, and wooded draws.
The ranch's main water feature is an immense 40 +/- acre conservation lake that lies in the heart of the property. Fed by the spring waters of Roaring Creek, the lake maintains a consistent level year around. Below the dam, the lake's tailwaters feed the creek to create additional habitat for fish species like largemouth bass.
Numerous stock ponds are strategically placed around the ranch so livestock has abundant water without having to travel far from their grazing lands. Well placed water resources (like the ones found on this ranch) help facilitate better range utilization by cattle.
Across the range, native grasses are in abundance as well. The ranch's predominant grass - little bluestem - blankets the hills while bermuda grass thrives in the areas where the bluestem does not. In this general area, well maintained rangelands can support an animal unit for every ten acres or so. As such, the ranch is crossfenced into pasture and traps that lead livestock to the centrally placed working pens on the ranch's most prominent hilltop.
In the bottomlands and draws feeding the lake, timber like locust, oak, and hackberry grows and creates food and cover for a variety of wildlife like whitetail deer, turkeys, and feral hogs. Upper hillside draws are punctuated with plum thickets and greenbriar mottes that make good cover for bobwhite quail on the property.
The Ranch on Roaring Creek is easily accessible as a blacktop county road provides access to the main gate. Furthermore, it is a reasonable driving distance from either Oklahoma City or Fort Worth. This property would make a great combination ranch or a nice addition to a current livestock operation.
