Another great spot in Kerr County for folks that don’t want to live in a restricted subdivision is Turtle Creek Ranches.

It is located about 6 miles SW of the Guadalupe River. Travel Hwy 16 S to FM1273 (Upper Turtle Creek Rd) and go right.

The majority of the tracts are 10 acres and measure 435 ft wide and 1000 ft deep. There are of course exceptions. The area has a very up and down topography for the most part with a small percentage of level pastures in the area of Bushwack Road, some areas of FM1273 and along Turtle Creek. The rest is high hill tops and deep valleys. There are lots of springs down in many of the canyons.

Hunting is excellent for whitetail and hogs. There are some axis but not as many as some other areas of the county.

Wells and septics are needed on almost all the tracts with few exceptions. Wells can be anywhere from 150 ft to 600 ft in depth. Depending on if you hit the Edwards or the Trinity aquifer. Edwards wells are shallower and the water has less mineral content but in droughts they can run dry. Trinity wells don’t as a rule go dry.

Turtle Creek runs through the area as well and in extreme flooding situations you could be stuck at home for a few hours. (rare)

Homes range from large luxury homes to small mobile homes and everything in between.
