Johnston Lake Ranch offers a unique combination of attributes highly sought after in a North Texas recreational ranch. This 360-acre Young County ranch checks the boxes; it has a 12-acre lake, hills, woods and wildlife! Johnston Lake Ranch is in a great location just 10 miles from Graham and 2 hours from DFW. The absence of an expensive and/or high maintenance home adds to the appeal while keeping the price lower.
