Located just an hour and forty-five minutes from downtown Ft. Worth, Hidden Lake is one of the most unique land holdings to be found in west central Texas. Seven miles south of Exit 340 on I-20 and less than two and one half miles on a paved county road going east out of the tiny hamlet of Carbon, lies an 81.84 acre oasis, where the Cross Timbers ecoregion subtly begins to morph into the Rolling Plains. Eastland – 12 miles Lake Leon – 13.7 miles Weatherford – 77.5 miles Ft. Worth – 105 miles Dallas – 125 miles.
When full, there is a 43+/- acre lake that embodies half of the property. The lake is over twenty feet deep at the dam. The dam is better than two thousand feet in length. Built in the 1940’s and known as Buster Hanson Lake from the second World War until the current owner bought it in 2008, it was managed by professionals as a fishing club for trophy bass. The records kept on the lake since April of 2008 through 2012, tell the story of just how productive a fishery Hidden Lake has been.
There is a 720 square foot two bedroom, one bath cabin built in 2009, including an 8’x30’ covered porch affording an idyllic view of the lake through the post oak timber. There is well and septic on site. A storage shed sits beside the cabin. There is a pole barn facility just off of the driveway that provides covered boat storage, which is lighted and has electric receptacles for recharging marine batteries. The owner built an extensive concrete boat ramp and a fish cleaning station that provides running water and electricity at lakeside. There is a pier on the east side of the lake with walking access from the dam. The owner took advantage of the recent drought and excavated a six foot deep area of the lake’s edge, just below the cabin, to provide an excellent swimming area on the lake’s south side.
