880 acres of refined Texas wilderness awaits your private exploration.
Historic Prairie Oaks Ranch was once home to Sauropod Dinosaurs, American Bison rangeland, Comanche hunting parties, and even a way station along the famed Chisolm Trail.
Today, Blackjack Oak forests, wild plum, blackberry thickets and native grasses continue to thrive through extensive conservation efforts. White tail deer, bobcats, coyotes, beavers and bald eagles, among many other species of birds, fish and game now make their home at Prairie Oaks Ranch.
Modern amenities and refined recreations have been appropriately woven into the natural landscape provided by the rolling topography and wide open prairie skies to create one of the most amazing ranches in Texas. Access this previously inaccessible retreat via private air to the front gate or a mere 1.5 hour drive from Dallas Fort Worth.
