Rancho Dos Rios

15,000 +/- Acres

Knox County, Texas

This ranch encompases two large tracts of land, multiple fields and pastures, and frontage on two livewater rivers in northwest Texas. From sweeping vistas across steep ridges to lush grass flats and private lakes, this expansive ranch has much to offer.


Rancho Dos Rios is loaded with water! The Wichita River winds through the north end for over seven miles, providing frontage on both sides. On the south border, the ranch follows the Brazos River for roughly five miles. These two rivers flow year around, from bank-to-bank running water in the rainy seasons to small streams during droughts.

Seasonal creek washes and ravines feed the two rivers. Several water tanks have been built off of these drainages, the largest of which is approximately 14 acres in size, and several others 3-5 acres large. Over 30 smaller "catch" ponds are scattered across the sections to provide water for cattle, and a community water line tap is in place too.


The predominant hardwoods on the ranch are mesquite and cedar, with a few elm and hackberry stands in the pastures. Some parts of the rivers have dense chinaberry motts and wild plum thickets.


The pastures have a variety of native grasses, with certain areas having heavier vegetation than others. The property has been cross fenced extensively for rotational grazing, and there are working pens on both the north and south divisions. Approximately 17% of the ranch is in cultivation (2600 +/- acres), currently being used to grow wheat and haygrazer. These crops allow for winter grazing and hay production; there is a large metal hay barn for storing bales. The farm land is capable of growing coastal bermuda or bluestem, if the new owner wanted to develop more improved grass pastures.

When the pastures and fields are used in combination to promote a cattle operation, the ranch will support a 500 cow herd. Alternately, the ranch would be suitable for running stockers during the Spring and Summer months.


The ranch is abundant with native wildlife - you can't hardly drive down the road without seeing deer run through a pasture or a pack of wild hogs kick up dust! Trophy whitetails and flocks of Rios, bobwhite quail and migrating ducks... There is more than enough game here to keep even the most avid of sportsmen busy year around. For the fisherman, the many lakes and ponds are suitable for developing a variety of species, such as bass, brim, crappie, and catfish.


The more rugged areas of the ranch, where the views stretch for miles across the valleys and hills, allow for scenic horseback riding. The diverse terrain has excellent areas for off-roading and ATVing as well.


East of the town of Benjamin, in Knox County. The ranch sits in Texas big ranch country, in a transitional area from the rolling hills of North Texas to the plateaus and flatlands of West Texas. It borders the 550,000 acre Waggoner Ranch and is just down the road from the historic 6666 and Pitchfork ranches.
