The Refuge in Navarro County, TX is an ideal mix of excellent topography, breathtaking views, great pastureland, and an abundance of surface water that all contribute to the uniqueness of this high fenced exotic game ranch. Located just over 1 hour from Downtown Dallas with frontage on the Trinity River, this 530+/- acre ranch is great for a weekend getaway or as a full-time residence. The current owners have also operated the property as a corporate hunting retreat selling commercial hunts and animals.
The property is located on the north side of HWY 31, in Navarro County TX. It is approximately 1 hour from Downtown Dallas, 1.5 hours from Fort Worth, and 3 hours from Houston.
This property has approximately 8,800 +/- feet of frontage on HWY 31 and is accessed directly off HWY 31.
Water on the ranch is excellent and well suited for watering wildlife and livestock. There are a total of 8 bodies of water on the property varying in size; the largest being approximately 3 +/- AC in size. The main water feature on the property is the frontage on the south side of the Trinity River. The ranch has a little over 1 mile of frontage on the river. There are some other small tributaries that run through the ravines and eventually make their way into the Trinity River.
The elevation changes that occur on this property are breathtaking. Elevation on the property range from approximately 400 +/- feet above sea level at the highest point of the property on the west end, to approximately 275 +/- feet above sea level near the banks of the Trinity River.
The entire perimeter of the property has a high game fence in place. Improvements on the property include a cabin with large entertaining areas, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom. The cabin sits on top of the hill with wonderful views of the large 2.5 +/- AC lake as well as the surrounding countryside. In addition to the cabin, there is a shop/barn for storing equipment and a small managers house. There are 16-high fenced deer pens that all connect to the deer breeding facility and barn
The ranch is well suited for recreation and hunting. Enjoy riding ATVs on beautiful trails throughout the property, fishing in the stock tanks, or enjoying a sunset while watching wildlife from a bow stand. The ranch is currently being operated as a high fenced game ranch primarily focused on high-end whitetail. In the past, the sellers have sold hunts on the property, and there is excellent potential to do this in the future.
