Valley View Ranch is a large contiguous recreational tract of land located within a short drive of 5 major reservoirs as well as the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge to the SE and the Deep Fork WMA to the SW. Not only is the area rich with surface water but the Arkansas River, Canadian, and Deep Fork Rivers all flow nearby and create waterfowl highways in the area. The proximity to major lakes would make it easy to combine a lake house experience with a hunting property or you could build a lodge on Valley View Ranch and take your pick of the beautiful boating & fishing lakes to enjoy. This is a phenomenal opportunity to purchase a tract of land with minerals intact that has been in the same family for nearly 100 years. It's been a long time since I've looked at a property that has so much recreational opportunity yet has good access to major highways & this many recreational lakes. The waterfowl potential on this place is off the chart considering the volume of birds migrating through this area every year. It may even be possible to obtain a permit to pump water out of Dirty Creek if a new owner wanted to design marshes that could be drawn down in the spring and flooded in the fall. Strong emphasis has been put on the waterfowl component but the deer, turkey & pigs hunting will not disappoint with such a dense protected block of timber along a major waterway. The rich, fertile bottomland soils are perfect for food plots to be staggered strategically throughout the property. On the far northern portion of the property is some open pasture that has been cross fenced separately. To the far south across the creek the land rises about approximately 75-80 feet adding some very desirable relief to the topo.
The Seller told me stories of a grand two-story house that once stood on the property and described how his mother's family farmed much of the area north of the creek until the 1930's. As the government programs changed and farms were taken out of production back in the 30's the timber began to fill in the once cultivated ground. Sometime in the 70's the family had some timber harvested but now over 40 years later that is a distant memory. The house no longer stands and only foundation stones remain but those areas once farmed could be reclaimed and utilized as wetlands or food plots to draw massive amounts of wildlife from the surrounding areas. Valley View Ranch needs an owner with vision and the desire to take this property to the next level. If you're up for the challenge this could be the property you've been looking for.
