Dixon Creek Ranch | Tract 3

Decatur, Cooke County, Texas


48.73 Arces

This 48.73 +/- acre ranch property is located north of the Decatur and Denton, in southwestern Cooke County, TX. It has county road frontage, varied terrains, a creek and great hunting! Enormous trees and end of the road privacy add to this unique tract of land.

Approximately 30 minutes west of I-35 at the Sanger/Lake Ray Roberts exit, it is within 1.5 hrs of downtown Fort Worth and most of north Dallas. CR 334 runs along its whole north border, and electricity is available down the road. For water, you would need to drill a water well. The property is over the Upper Trinity aquifer; water can be reached within 400 ft. You might even hit a shallower vein too, as multiple artesian springs can be found across the property.

Most of the land is in large trees, including huge white oak and elm, plus live oak, post oak, hickory, cottonwood and a few cedars. The parts that are not wooded are either in grass or native country. Approximately 10 acres on the east side was once a rock quarry and has sat vacant for over 5 years now. This land has been cleaned up and is slowly reverting back to vegetation. A few smaller gravel piles were intentionally left, in case some gravel was needed for a road, RV pad or other similar need.

The other 37 +/- acres is prime wooded land; newly constructed roads take you up and over the hills, through the trees and down to Dixon Creek. This creek flows most of the year; even in times when it slows down, like the summer, it still holds large pockets of water, some of which are 3-4 ft deep. It has a limestone base and crystal clear water. You will see lots of black bass swimming in it. The creek on this land is additionally supplied from drainage ravines on both the subject property and the land across the creek, so it holds water very well. Dixon Creek is very relaxing and fun to explore (or swim in).

A really cool campsite is in place near the front of the land. It sits in the middle of a tall grove, so it is quiet and private, and cant be seen from the county road. Inside this grove are three tables made of limestone rock. There is plenty of room to park multiple camping trailers, or would be a great location to build a cabin. A small concrete slab here makes good place to have a fire pit too. (See pictures)

Across the creek is a 1,900 acre conservation ranch, which protects against future development in the area. The county road dead ends just past this tract, so you have no through traffic except the neighboring ranch owners. Come and see this beautiful tract of land for yourself!

LIST PRICE: $7,500/acre | $365,475 total
