Peach Creek Ranch is a fantastic undeveloped property with a 65± acre reservoir built right in the middle of the property. Gibbons Creek runs through the western half of the ranch, with the eastern half rising up to over 80’ above the creek bottoms. The ranch has a wonderful variety of ecosystems that include a large lake, an old-growth forest, and more open grasslands. The lakes are approximately 67± acres of surface water that includes a lot of shallow areas that create ideal wetland areas that attract a huge variety of waterfowl and other wetland fowl. The lake has an abundance of coon-tail, American lotus, and other aquatic vegetation that creates an attractive habitat for migratory bird species. Approximately 160± acres of the wooded area is found in the floodplain along the banks of Gibsons Creek.
The tremendous variety of trees and undergrowth over the ranch creates excellent habitat for white-tailed deer. No hunting on the ranch has occurred in the last 2 years and the deer are plentiful. Waterfowl hunting on the property is tremendous with the huge shallow lake that creates an outstanding habitat for ducks that migrate through the area during the winter. With Gibbons Creek Lake so close and numerous other large private lakes, the area is one of the best duck hunting places in the Brazos Valley. Dove, hogs, alligators as well as predators are very common on the property. The ranch’s diverse ecosystems are home (year-round or during annual migration) to all types of other animals and birds. Bald eagles and osprey are very common on the property.
The lake is stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, and redear sunfish and is an excellent fishery. Approximately 2,400’ of Gibbons Creek runs through the west side of the property (both sides of the creek are on the ranch), and this waterway runs year-round. Both sides of Peach Creek run through the middle of the property into the reservoir. Several other small creeks on the property also run into Peach Creek before entering the reservoir and usually have running water through seeps that keep the water draining into the lake.
