The Nueces River Ranch is located in the middle of the Balcones Escarpment, a giant geologic upheaval, which created the magnificent Nueces Canyon. This beautiful canyon country is often referred to as the Rocky Mountains of Texas.

The terrain varies from rich bottom land with native pecan trees to high rugged mountain country. Elevations vary from 1700 along FM 335 to 2265 along the mountain tops, a variance of 565. 4-WD/ATV roads built around the mountain ridges are ideal for hunting, hiking, mountain climbing and caving.


Water resources on the Nueces River Ranch are extensive. Along the eastern boundary a crystal clear spring fed creek flows along Ruth Draw into the clear Nueces River. The Spring Creek and the Nueces River combined flow for over a mile and is the east boundary of the property. Near the southeastern boundary Oak Tree Spring Branch flows thousands of gallons of spring water per minute into the Nueces River. The spring branch in the strongest and largest flowing spring branch in the Upper Nueces River Basin. The springs flow large amounts of pure water even during droughts.

There are two small springs located along the bottom of deep canyons that produce enough water for wild game animals. A 120 ft. deep water well equipped with a submersible electric pump is located at the headquarters.
