North Blue River Falls is a 111-acre ranch located on the banks of the Blue River at Connerville, OK.  This property is located about 100 miles from either DFW or OKC.  With an entry located on a quiet country road that is only 850 feet from paved frontage on a quiet country highway, you are a quick drive from either metro area to this beautiful river property. 

Boasting 1360 feet of Blue River, this property gives you a tremendous amount of river frontage on a relatively small amount of land.  This is a truly beautiful stretch of the river where springs from the Arbuckle Simpson aquifer feed directly into the river, maintaining a continuous base flow with constant inputs of pure, cold spring water.  With so much of this portion of the Blue River encompassed by large ranches, there are very few chances to own any stretch of it, much less this much of it with just 111 acres.  In addition, this portion of the river has beautiful travertine waterfalls.  Travertine forms naturally and slowly over time as the flowing water deposits minute amounts of calcium and other minerals in shallow areas, ultimately creating beautiful waterfalls.  These waterfalls are constantly reworked as the river dissects and meanders around them creating small chains of travertine islands in the river.  These areas create turbulence that in turn oxygenate the water creating a superb fishery for small mouth and black bass.  Between the constant flow of highly oxygenated, pure springwater and the natural structure formed by the travertine deposits, these stretches of river are exceptional for floating, swimming and fishing.  Flyfishing would be particularly enjoyable in the deeper holes.   

In addition to the water and fishing, the ranch has many mature native pecans in a 21-acre bottom that lays alongside the river.  These trees have a pleasant, natural spacing with a strong growth of fescue and clover beneath them.  This savannah type setting creates a parklike atmosphere along the north side of the river.  A large ranch upstream of the property has been managing the whitetail herd by harvesting does on an annual basis.  Because of this, we see an abnormally high number of bucks on the property as they search for does along this natural wildlife corridor that follows the river.  The strong mineral content of the soil and water produces some impressive racks.     

A home sits about ½ mile south of Blue Church Road on the north side of the river.  This brick, two story home sits atop a hill near the transition where the property slopes down to the river.  According to the county assessor, this 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 2768 square foot home was built in 1991.   It has been recently cleaned, painted, and repaired.  It comes complete with a kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace, and two downstairs bedrooms that share a bathroom.  There is another bedroom upstairs that  shares a bathroom with two other smaller rooms that could either serve as bedrooms, office space or storage.  From this spot, you can easily drive down to the flat ground along the river for easy access to the water. 

The ranch is mainly comprised of open pasture that in conjunction with the 40 inches of rainfall received per year would make an ideal, small cattle operation.  In fact, there is a 1200 sq ft barn with a 600 sq ft side shed with three holding pens and a large trap to manage the herd. 

For those who have airplanes, the sellers also own an adjacent ranch complete with runway and aircraft hangar.  They are open to discussing terms for the next owner of North Blue River Falls to access and use both.  This would make a great ranch to fly into for a weekend of flyfishing or deer hunting.
