The Sugarloaf Ranch - Foard County, Crowell, TX
Spanning approximately 7,986 acres in the Rolling Plains of West Texas, the Sugarloaf Ranch boasts a private oasis with grand views, surface water, flowing creeks, and a massive lodge built for entertainment. The ranch is about a 3-hour drive from DFW, located a short distance from Crowell, Texas and has Highway 70 frontage. Being in the heart of big ranch country in northwest Texas, the historic Sugarloaf Ranch is just south of the 120,000 acre Triangle Ranch, and nearby to the 550,000 acre Waggoner Ranch and 180,000 acre Pitchfork Ranch.
The Sugarloaf Ranch is approximately 80 miles from Wichita Falls, 160 miles from Amarillo, 155 miles from Lubbock, 195 miles from Oklahoma City, 200 miles from Fort Worth, and 220 miles from Dallas. Regional runways in Crowell (3,200’) and in Vernon(5,100’) allow nearby convenience to those who prefer to fly.
The Sugarloaf is bordered to the east by the high-fenced 1,500-acre Six Mile Hill Ranch, and to the north by the 11,500-acre US Army Corps of Engineers land, resulting in extremely low hunting pressure that has allowed the ranch to be inhabited by a considerable population of mule and whitetail deer. In recent years, dove and quail hunts have resulted in limit-hitting days. Other wildlife that can be found on the ranch include turkey, ducks, hogs and coyotes. Native vegetation sustains these diverse inhabitants, fostering a harmonious balance.
Discover the richness of the ranch’s varied terrain, from hilly expanses to captivating canyons like the Bowley and Sloans Springs systems that run through the north sections of the ranch. Venture into the southern sections to find flat pastures adorned with juniper cedars, mesquites, and hackberry trees.
A private road off of US Highway 70 leads you to a 10,000 square foot lodge with 9 bedrooms and 10 1/2 baths underwent a comprehensive renovation in 2023, and can easily accommodate a large number of guests. This included the installment of wood flooring throughout the upstairs bedrooms and second-story, new granite countertops in all of the bathrooms, and a newly expanded and renovated kitchen. Four of the bedrooms feature fireplaces for added allure. The upper floor hosts a bar area with two pool tables, four poker tables, a large bar and stone fireplace in the center of the quarters. A new roof was installed in August of 2023, and nearly all exterior logs of the lodge were replaced and painted within the last year.
Water is an abundant resource on the ranch, with four primary drainages and approximately 20 water tanks that can be fished for bass year-round. The four creeks traversing the north end of the ranch usually hold water year-round. The headquarters benefits from community water, while additional water sources cater to your cattle’s needs.
The sale includes all subsurface mineral interests owned by the seller, who owns from 1/16th or 1/32nd of the mineral estate under most sections of the ranch. There are 5 producing wells out of the Raspberry (Caddo 6100) Field, that pay the seller around $7,500 annually on average, depending on market conditions. Lease conditions necessitate the operator to maintain roads.
