Fishing and water for livestock and wildlife is furnished by 3 large earthen dams (dirt tanks) and a number of smaller ones, several of which are stocked with fish.
The ranch supports a wide variety of wild flowers, grasses, trees and other plants which combined with its varied terrain, wildlife and outstanding scenery make it an excellent location for hiking, horseback or ATV adventures.
