The Drummond South Ranch, with over 11,690 acres in total under fence with a mix of 6,850 deeded acres and the balance of land leased from various neighbors, is now offered for sale after being owned by the same family for nearly 100 years. Frederick Drummond operated the ranch for nearly 50 years, eventually passing it along to his children. This scenic working cattle ranch is located nearly 20 miles northwest of Tulsa on a direct line, sits right above Keystone Lake, and is around three miles southwest of Skiatook Lake. One can see downtown Tulsa from several of the high points on the ranch.
This ranch is made up of the rolling hills covered with the typical species of native tall grasses, in addition to the abundant stands of trees that dominate this sector of the Cross Timbers ecoregion. Numerous draws run throughout the ranch. Several of those draws at times can have water backed up in them from Keystone Lake during periods of high flows from the Arkansas River that feeds Keystone Lake.
The ranch has been operated over the last 100 years by the same family as a working cattle ranch, typically running around 600 head of mother cows and calves annually. However, the general location of this Drummond South Ranch, with its proximity to Keystone and Skiatook Lakes, and the short drive to the Tulsa Metroplex, its become obvious that this land is moving in a transitional path that looks to be headed way beyond cattle ranching. This large landholding is nearly impossible to duplicate because of its unmatched location. The incredible proximity to Tulsa, Keystone Lake, and Skiatook Lake are just a few of the high points. The rolling hills of tall grass, the timbered areas full of blackjack and post oak trees, and the deep draws are home to an assorted wildlife population. The views from various high points on the ranch are stunning.
