Location: Ideally located in the northeastern portion of Bosque County, approximately 2.0 miles west of the town of Kopperl, Texas, the property is an easy 1.5 hours southwest of Dallas, 1.0 hour south of Fort Worth, and 1.0 hour northwest of Waco.
Summary: The Kopperl Lakes Ranch is a great combination use property with ample pasture and grasses for grazing, surprising amounts of cover for wildlife, and good surface water sources. The property was once part of a sand and gravel mining operation, and is an excellent example of the owner's land stewardship and reclamation efforts.
Water: Kopperl Lakes Ranch is very well watered. There are approximately 7.3+/- acres of surface water across two lakes and three ponds. Raymond Creek also runs near the east boundary of the property and a wet weather branch flows through a Cottonwood bottom found on the west end of the ranch. There are no water wells on the property at this time, but underground water is generally easy to find in this area and it is believed that a water well could be successfully drilled if so desired.
Pastures: The center 25+/- acres of the ranch is comprised of some of the thickest switchgrass (believed to be Alamo variety) you will ever see. This pasture has been cut and baled in years past, and could be utilized once again for hay production. The balance of pasture on the west and east ends of the ranch primarily consist of perennial and native grasses.
Hunting and Wildlife: The property has not been hunted regularly in years, but appears to attract and hold plenty of wildlife including deer, turkey, hog, and varmint. If you're a duck hunter then you're in luck as the property offers multiple ponds and small lakes that attract a wide variety of waterfowl. The eastern portion of the property may also offer potential to develop a managed wetland or connect and expand on the size of a couple of the smaller lakes.
Roads and Fencing: The ranch has road frontage along two sides as the west boundary fronts along Bosque County Road No. 1165 for ~1,340' and the south boundary fronts along Bosque County Road No. 1160 for ~ 4,282'. The property is pretty raw with very few ranch roads or trails in place, however there is a nice road and gate entrance from County Road 1160 that was once an the haul road up to the plant site during years of previous mining activity. Perimeter fencing ranges in condition from good to poor, with the parts of the northern boundary and the entirety of the eastern boundary being unfenced.
