CROCKETT COUNTY, TEXAS
ACREAGE: 22,635 +/- Acres
LOCATION: The Live Oak Ranch is located 30 miles West of Ozona, Texas on Interstate-10. The Live Oak Ranch is accessible via Interstate-10 or multiple county and state maintained roads. The Ranch has approximately 4.5 miles of I-10 frontage and Crockett County Road 304 (Live Oak Rd.) passes through the property for 5 miles. The ranch also has a small amount of US Hwy. 290 Frontage.
TERRAIN: The Live Oak Ranch is located at the junction of Live Oak Creek and the Pecos River. The terrain is very diverse and consists of a variety of land variations from flat meadow lands along the Pecos River to high ridge top hills and deep canyons on the north side of the property. These large canyons and high hills are typical of the transition area between the Edwards Plateau and Stockton Plateau regions of Texas. Traversing through the middle of the ranch is Live Oak Creek, a wet weather creek that has an immense history dating back to the operational days of Ft. Lancaster. Located at the South end of Live Oak Creek, close to the Pecos River and Ft. Lancaster, is the mile long live oak mot that has been written about on many occasions by the early explorers and settlers of Texas. There is a combination of large mature live oak, shin oak, mesquite and juniper trees located throughout the property. The deep canyons and valleys on the ranch are an amazing source of topographical change, offering extensive elevation variation.
WATER: The Live Oak Ranch is a working ranch that is watered by an extensive system of water wells, water storage tanks, and water troughs. Located on the Northwest and Southeast sides of the ranch is the Pecos River, with approximately 5 miles of frontage. Live Oak Creek is located on the eastern portion of the ranch and offers crystal clear spring fed water during wet weather.
HISTORY: The original part of the Live Oak Ranch has been in the same family ownership for over 100 years and this is the first time that it is being offered for sale in that time. There is immense history adjoining the Live Oak Ranch, as the ranch surrounds Ft. Lancaster which was established in 1856 as an infantry post to help protect the westward expansion of the United States. The location of the Fort was established due to the close proximity of Live Oak Creek, which provided a great source of clear water and was close to the San Antonio–El Paso Pecos River crossing. Also located on the Live Oak Ranch is the famous “state of Texas” rock, which sits close to four mile crossing on the Pecos River. Four Mile crossing was an additional river crossing that was used extensively in the passage of the Pecos River in the westward expansion movement.
RECREATION: Wildlife on the Live Oak Ranch consist of whitetail deer, rio grande turkey, quail, dove and an occasional mule deer. This is a great property offering good hunting and the ability to fish for multiple species of fish in the Pecos River.
