Located in Leon County and a convenient drive from Dallas, Houston, Waco, and College Station, the Keechi Creek Ranch is the ideal weekend getaway, permanent residence, or commercial game ranch. Over 150′ of elevation change provides incredible views of the surrounding countryside. The northern 580+/- acres is high fenced with galvanized fencing and is currently being stocked with enhanced whitetail genetics. The property has been outfitted with 5 HB hunting products blinds and top of the line feeders, as well as a fully equipped target shooting range with covered shooting benches creating a turnkey sportsman’s paradise. Recent improvements include new internal roads, 150 acres+ logged and cleared, concrete lake spillway, and a 4 bed/2 bath home equipped with water well and underground power set on a scenic highpoint with spectacular views of the lake below. There is potential for additional logging income. The southern 800+/- acres of this diverse property is currently low fenced and provides excellent wildlife habitat and a blank canvas for future improvement with multiple locations for additional lakes identified. A truly unique feature of this ranch is that it adjoins the Keechi Creek Wildlife Management Area, which has been owned and managed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department since 1986, creating a sanctuary for an abundance of native wild game and giving the option of hunting high fenced improved wildlife herds as well as native species in a pristine habitat with adjoining state owned river bottom. There are several wet weather creeks that traverse the property along with Henry’s Whiskey creek that has been said to flow year-round. The crown jewel of this property is the 18+/- acre “Lucy” Lake which is not only incredibly scenic but has produced some incredible bass reportedly in the 12lb+ range. The depth of the lake has been measured at 25’ and was believed by the previous owner to be spring fed. The current owner has put into place a lake management plan with a fisheries biologist.
