The Kimball Ranch presents the opportunity to own a large contiguous ranch in a location and during an age where parceling up land is becoming more and more common. The ability to put this many acres together in such a highly productive area provides an opportunity that is becoming more and more difficult to find. Contact Drew Ary or Eric Zellers to schedule a private tour.
General Operation & Land Characteristics:
With a current carrying capacity of 650-700 units, this ranch is strategically improved as a commercial cow-calf ranch with the flexibility and potential to run yearlings and stockers. Current operation is taking this ranch to a new level with a potential of increasing the carrying capacity to close to 800 units through intensive management and rotational strategies.
This rolling ranch is comprised of mostly improved Bermuda, fescue, and clover pastures with a good mix of native grass species throughout. 75-80% is considered to be grazeable with the remainder being made up of thickets and hardwood bottoms. The pristine Salt Creek and its crystal clear waters meander across nearly 2 miles of the ranch on its way into the northeast corner of beautiful Oologah Lake. The western side of this ranch borders close to 2.5 miles of the Oologah Lake Corp of Engineers land which is teaming with wildlife. This and the beautiful Salt Creek also provide an unrealized potential for recreational income opportunities. The rolling terrain create picturesque views throughout the whole property and especially along the ridge lines that overlook the lake.

The adjoining Corp Land along Oologah Lake offers areas of public land that is not easily accessed but through the Kimball Ranch adding to the recreational areas included with this property. Incredible fishing is possible along the 2 miles of the Salt Creek which is loaded with bass, catfish, and seasonal runs of white bass, hybrids, and crappie. These crystal clear waters also are great for cooling off and taking a swim during the heat of the summer. The expanse of the ranch offers unlimited capabilities regarding utv and horseback trails allowing for countless hours of enjoyment while taking in the scenery and breathing the fresh air. If fully utilized and managed the recreational aspects of this property could add great income potential by creating a recreational getaway/venue.
