Decker Ranch sits just south of the small town of Howe, in Leflore County, Oklahoma. This Eastern Oklahoma ranch is only a short 15-minute drive from the county seat of Poteau, a 45- minute drive from Ft. Smith, Arkansas, a two-hour drive from Tulsa, and a four-hour drive from Dallas.
From the back porch of the main ranch house you have gorgeous views overlooking the ranch’s 100-acre lake with the Ouachita Mountains in the background. To the north there are spectacular views of the San Boise Mountain Range and Cavanal Hill, billed by locals as the,"tallest hill in the world">
Coal Creek runs through the property and feeds the 100-acre lake. The lake was built in 1967 and named Shadwick Lake after the ranch’s previous owner. The dam is an earthen berm design with a 245-foot- long open-channel concrete spillway. The creek along with the lake provides an enormous amount of water for the livestock and wildlife.
The current owner utilizes the ranch as a cow-calf operation and typically runs about 200 pair. Soil maps for this ranch show soil types that include Class 2E, 3E, 4S, 5W & 6E.
This ranch comes with many improvements. The main ranch house is a two story, 4-bedroom, 4- bathroom, home that was built in 2008 and is approximately 3,600 square feet. Situated adjacent to the ranch house is a 3,000-square foot metal shop with living quarters.
Additional improvements include a second shop area that can be used for storage and another living space that could be used for a superintendent’s home or rental property. The Ranch has working pens, corrals, scales, and cross fencing, making it easy to rotate and work cattle.
There is also potential for this ranch to be developed for residential or commercial use. The property could be subdivided and sold as spectacular lake front and lake view homesites. The Ranch also has commercial potential with its 4,000 feet of U.S. Highway 59 frontage being less than a mile north of the town of Heavener, Oklahoma.
Whether someone is looking for a scenic combination ranch or an opportunity to develop home sites and commercial property, overlooking a 100-acre lake, Decker Ranch with all it offers, may be just what you are looking for.
