“Legendary Camp Cooley, known as ‘The Cattle Ranch’ of Central Texas, is perhaps the best known modern day name brand and ranching operation of its type in the world,” said Uechtritz. “It is incredibly rich in history, natural beauty, surface and subsurface water, Coastal Bermuda grasslands and minerals, and offers multiple revenue streams and many other opportunities.”
For nearly two decades, Camp Cooley Genetics built a revolutionary, robust, and internationally recognized seedstock cattle operation, running as many as 4,500 head of cow/calf pairs and up to 2,000 head of bulls on the fertile pastureland. It remains today a sophisticated multi‐level turnkey cattle and commercial hay operation.
Assembled from more than 40 tracts in the early 1950s, Camp Cooley Ranch includes lush grasslands, mineral rights and wetlands with potential for mitigation banking. The wildlife preserve and incredible lodge was once a private retreat for bygone era Texas tycoons, legends, and famous politicians, including President Lyndon Johnson and Texas Governor John Connally.
Camp Cooley includes an incredible 8,590 sq. foot lakeside main residence, a 15-suite executive office complex, meeting rooms, and security and communication systems that monitor the ranch. A sophisticated computer-monitored water well system also covers the entire ranch, as well as a network of homes, barns, workshops, buildings, first class breeding and cattle workstations, and a multi‐use sale pavilion, which are all interconnected by approximately 84 miles of internal road systems.
