What to Expect

Sitting on 5,454 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!

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.
