Mesquites and huisache are predominant brush species, but there are also more southerly browse plants such as lime prickly ash present on the ranch. Hackberry and cedar elm are the predominant trees, along with some nice live oaks. The tidal flats are largely grazeable wintertime pasture, and feature two main ponds of +3.5 and +2.5 acres, along with numerous smaller potholes that are great duck hunting spots.

Much of the creek can be fished from the bank and accessed by pickup or ATV, and there is a public boat ramp just down the shoreline from the ranch.
Deer, hogs, and varmints frequent the upland pastures, and dove hunting can be excellent.
