Serenity Valley Ranch
When we arrived at Serenity Valley Ranch for the first time, we were expecting to see a 320-acre spread where a person could run some cows, enjoy the live water of the Spring Brook Creek and spend time developing and managing the deer that run along its heavily wooded banks. What we didn't expect to find was one of the most beautiful home sites we've ever seen.
Located 70 miles Southeast of Oklahoma City and 165 miles from the Dallas metro area, Serenity Valley Ranch is an ideal spot for those looking for the peace and beauty of rural life.
This 320-acre ranch is about 70% open with groves of hardwoods scattered along draws and along the banks of the Spring Brook Creek. The soils are mostly clay loamy soils in the bottom ground areas transitioning to sandy loam on the upper elevations and hill ground. With a little improvement, the rich silty clay loam soils along and in the bottoms could be some of the most productive soils in the county. Perfect for food plots, cover crops and year round grazing opportunities.
Entering from the southeast you'll pass by a set of working pens near the road. The perimeter fencing and cross fencing have been maintained and updated recently and are ready for livestock. The pastures are mostly native with some improved grasses in the far east pastures, moving to all native grasses to the west. The fence-line boarders the Spring Brook Creek to the northwest with no water gaps to maintain.
Just on the western side of the creek there is approximately 24 acres of wooded cover, providing the perfect habitat for the large whitetail population this area of the county is known for. On any given day you'll likely jump many deer from their resting and browsing spots along the lush and fertile banks of the creek. This habitat is ideal for deer, wild turkey and other small game.
1500 feet from the entrance on County Road 3430 the elevation peaks at approximately 1120 ft. This is the fantastic view that gave the ranch its name. The view in any direction is breathtaking. To the northeast you look over a large draw with a pond nestled in the bottom that is just over an acre in size. We also saw several areas where water drainage had caused some erosion. We think these would be great locations to catch additional water with new fishing ponds.
Directly to the south you'll see open rolling pastures with no neighbor in sight and only the blinking lights of the towers on the Arbuckle Mountains over 40 miles away.
To the west there is a crest leading to a gentle roll that gradually makes its way to the bottom land and the creek with areas of trees and two additional ponds providing ample water for livestock and wildlife.
The diverse landscape coupled with a peaceful location, exceptional views, rich wildlife and ranching capabilities make Serenity Valley a great fit for someone looking for a multi-use getaway within easy driving distance of the I-35 corridor.
