The Eagles Nest is 28 acres of natural beauty perched high above the South Canadian River just north of Ada, OK. Located 90 miles from OKC, 120 miles from Tulsa and 180 miles from Dallas, this property is an easy drive from metro areas. In fact, even the dead-end county road leading to the propertys access easement is paved.
The Eagles Nest features over one mile of river frontage lined with big cliff overlooks from which its name is derived. A cleared camping area extends from the hilltop near the southeast corner of the ranch along 80 feet of elevation change down to the river. To the west, you will find the remnants of an old fish camp that has been used by the owners family for three generations. Just past that, you will find a large rock overhang that may have been a fish camp for prehistoric families.
Electric service terminates near the camping area and an old well casing was reported to have hit good drinking water at 225 feet below ground surface. The neighbors well is screened near that depth which leads us to believe that there is a good chance of completing an adequate water well on the property. In which case, this spot would be the perfect place for a cabin overlooking the river.
Most 28 acre parcels would start feeling small very quickly, but this one will not. When the river is up, you can go on day long float trips, run trot lines, bank fish or swim. A great time to fish is in the spring when fish come up the river out of Lake Eufaula to spawn. In the winter, you can ambush the large deer that cross the property on their way up and down the river. You can spend your spring hunting wild turkeys and morel mushrooms. When the river is low, you can ride ATVs for miles in the river bed and catch hungry catfish from the isolated deep pools of water. For those not familiar with the area, it is reassuring to know that this portion of the river is isolated from public access, so traffic is largely limited to the landowners along its banks.
Rivers by nature are a powerful force. They giveth land and they taketh it away as their channel moves over time. In this case, the river has eroded approximately 1.5 acres from one portion of the property but has accreted or deposited 10 new acres of ground on the eastern end. This accreted land is not included in the listed acreage but could be claimed via legal proceedings by the new owner to increase the holding to 36.5 acres.
This property has been owned by the same family for three generations. Its likely your family would keep it just as long or longer and enjoy the peace and solitude of this unique river property.
For those looking for larger parcels, the Eagles Nest adjoins the Land Doctors 591 acre South Canadian River Ranch which also adjoins our Boulder Ranch listing. Combined, these three ranches would measure almost 1200 acres, feature 1 mile of river frontage and be roughly 1 mile wide and 2 miles long with public roads only touching the east and south boundary.
