Don’t miss out on the 1,402.17 acre Tampico Ranch!! Nestled below the Caprock Escarpment, this very private and secluded Tampico Ranch spills out into the legendary Red River Valley. The terrain on these 1,402.17 acres, more or less, is extremely diverse with many elevation changes, open meadows, thick brush, Hackberry groves and rolling hills. The rich red clay soil and mineral deposits, along both the Prairie Dog Town Fork Red River and the Little Red River, combined with fertile bottom land grow massive antlers and body weights unmatched by other parts of the world. This ranch is a true gem of the Texas Panhandle. With several water sources both wildlife and livestock alike thrive here. It had been under the Department of Texas Parks and Wildlife management game plan for over 15 years. Wildlife includes Whitetail Deer, Mule Deer, Bobwhite Quail, Blue Quail, Rio Grande Turkey, Wild Hogs, Coyote, Fox, Bobcat, Dove, Ducks, Sandhill Cranes and Exotics. This ranch is what helped put Plaska Lodge on the map as a premiere hunting destination in the state of Texas. The uniqueness of this ranch is simply unsurpassed in this area. Make it your own, then stock the high fenced area with whitetail deer, mule deer, exotics and cattle. Tampico Ranch is an ideal location to build a lodge, home or hunting cabin(s).
