What to Expect

Sitting on 4,200 acres of land, this working cattle ranch has history! The property used to be a part of the Oak View amusement park back in the 1800’s; recreating on this land is in its roots! The original owner decided to make a modern day amusement park for recreational purposes. The park featured it’s own baseball field and team, a large ballroom with an octagon dance floor, cabins and boats, a rodeo and an olympic-size swimming pool. The barn wasn’t just home to horses and sheep, but used to host barn dances as well. Over 100 years later, we have renovated this barn into our main lodge and the living room floor sits right where the dance hall floor used to be. Although the old park land is not part of our hunting grounds, we are happy to show people around if they are interested. 

Just 3 hours outside of Omaha, NE, we are located right on the edge of the Nebraska Sandhills. The property features everything from rolling grassland hills to oak hardwood bottoms to cedar timber. There are several hay meadows and alfalfa fields as well as small row crops that we use as our food plots. Water sources include Verdigre Creek running through part of the land as well as several private ponds. With rolling grasslands in the west, hardwood bottoms in the east and everything in between, we are a very diverse property!

    Everything was even better than expected! Darin and the guys are top notch. The lodge and accommodations are 2nd to none! Plenty of animals (in my case turkeys) and it's worth the trip just for the scenery and hospitality! Looking at the deer on the wall and the pictures from the past I'll definitely be back in the fall and for sure next spring! Never heard so much gobbling!

    Blair was a great guest and very polite and courteous. He really seemed to enjoy all aspects of doing a hunt in a new state and in a new place. I would recommend him for any other landowners

    Oak View Ranch is a heck of a place to stay and hunt turkeys! We killed our 5 birds in a hurry and we're able to kick back and relax at the lodge, do some fishing and enjoy the tranquility of the place, highly recommend.

    Jared and his group from On X were a good group and you could tell they took time to make sure they took care of the land and the lodge. They were good hunters and we’re all able to get their birds in the first day and a half.

Enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing and almost anything in the great outdoors. I esp like big game hunting and have been lucky enough to hunt in several of our western states and Alaska.
