Tilted Rock Ranch
Tilted Rock Ranch is a 360 acre property located south of Seminole, OK just two miles east of Highway 377. This convenient location is only 1 hour from Oklahoma City and 3 hours from Dallas which is important as many of your friends and family will want to visit you on this property because it has a set of features that makes it fun throughout the year.
Water is always a big attraction. This property has six existing ponds. One is approximately 2 acres and has a nice island and duck blind. An unfinished walkway connects the shore to the island and only needs floorboards and railing to finish it out. Two other ponds are a little larger than an acre each. They also each have fishing docks and one has a duck blind. There are two other ponds that are slightly larger than 1/2 acre each and one small pond is located along the driveway. There are also two brand new ponds that have been built on the property in the eroded area east of the house. We don't know how large these two ponds will be when full, but our guess is that the larger one will be close to 2 acres while the smaller one will be about an acre. Regardless of their size, we think transforming a badly eroded area into two new ponds is a great thing, especially when it addresses the last of the actively eroding areas on the ranch. The existing ponds are stocked with bass, crappie, perch and catfish and will be the ideal place to make some memories with the kids and/or grandkids this spring and summer. But there is more to water than just fishing. There is nothing more fun to kids than exploring creeks, flipping rocks, looking for arrowheads and splashing in the water. This property has an ideal stretch of a creek in its southeast corner that would be the perfect spot for this kind of exploration. It doesn't run all the time but tends to keep pools of water and has a nice rock feature that creates a small waterfall after big rains. There is also a more rugged drainage in the southwest corner of the ranch. The elevation in this area quickly transitions down about 30 feet from the top of the ridge down into the bottom of the drainage. The slopes of this drainage have lots of large boulders including one large rock slab that tilts upward and extends to the east. There appears to be a spring in this drainage, and we will be exploring it to verify as soon as possible.
Hunting is also a big draw for family and friends. Titled Rock Ranch offers almost 160 acres of woods where you can see scrapes and rubs along the old trails. In addition, several creek crossings were noted where the banks had been worn down by deer. We will be putting out trail cameras to see just what may be hanging out in this area. The current owner hasn't deer hunted in several years so there may be some pretty good bucks using this area as their sanctuary. In addition, the duck blinds on the ponds are ready to use when ducks from the Little River flyway two miles to the east stop and rest on the ponds. Surprisingly, we even jumped a nice covey of quail on the property.
If you'd like to have horses or run some cattle, the pastures are in good shape and are cross fenced to allow rotation. There are good working pens, holding pens and sheds for working livestock or even keeping a few show cattle up. There is good all-weather access throughout the ranch and there is a nice gravel road that runs on the along the south half of the western boundary. This private road is used to access an oil well and because of its location and the roll of the land, has very little impact on the tranquility of the property. Amazingly, 40 acres of minerals also come with the property.
Lastly, its always good to have a place to stay when you want to come out and play. This property features a very nice two bed, two bath home that comes with many of the furnishings. Just like the rest of the ranch, everything in the house is very clean, organized and well maintained. We think the back porch would be a great area to spend the evenings and apparently the deer think that also as there are tracks just a few feet from the house. A small workshop/garage is the perfect place to leave all of your toys and equipment.
