Default Eyeing land in Clayton, Ok (ouachita mountains)



Advertise Here

I'm currently overseas and I'm looking at buying 10 acres in a Clayton cash when I get back. After a quick google search for "land for sale near ouachita mountains" These properties came up. Are there any people familiar with this area? I will buying the land and learning as I go. Planning to put an RV and build a house and personal range (if legal) on the land. Any tips on what to look for?

Driven through the area numerous times, very nice area would be perfect for a retreat I'd also suggest other Ozark areas, not sure if Oachita is considered part of the Ozarks but it's certainly similar terrain.

Make sure there aren't any oil or gas wells anywhere near by

I was born and raised about 100 miles North in Sequoyah County.

I know this reply is a bit late, sorry about that.

There's a good sized lake near there, Sardis. Used to be great fishing 10 or so years ago. I'm sure it still has good fishing but I haven't fished it an awhile. It's a fairly remote area. Not a lot of population, very wooded, hilly. Don't expect to have a lot of choices in restaurants, most doctor appointments are going to be an hour away, same thing for a decent sized grocery store. The place is practically over run with deer and such. From a survival point of view, you probably aren't going to find a better place. As to your shooting range, yes it would be legal, as long as your neighbors house isn't in the line of fire.

There was a guy on another, now defunct forum whose screen name was clock152. He bought an acreage in the mountains and built a home there by himself. I haven't seen him post anywhere in quite a while but I did see him pop up on FB in my list of possible friends. I'll see if I can convince him to come chat with you a bit. He's a great guy. Really knowledgeable about all kinds of stuff. I think he had a YouTube channel for a whike, too. Let me do some looking.

They are very clannish. If you're not from there, a lot of them will want nothing to do with you. You will be viewed as a carpet bagger. I've run into a few over the years that will look cross ways at you just because you're from another county...even if it's just the next county from them. Not saying you can't make friends there, but it will likely take a bit of time to get them comfortable with you.

Just have the water well tested first if there is one in place. If not, you can find all registered wells in the area by visiting the Oklahoma Water Resources website and using their GIS tool. Then you can visit the owners and ask them about theirs. At least you will get an idea.

SE Oklahoma is a good area. Twice or more average rainfall than we get just 60 miles west of I35. Water, trees, cheap land.. what isn't to like? No JOBS. If you need a good paying job to make it work... it ain't there unless you have a trade to work.

Same as where I live... to get a good IT job, I commute 80 miles each way to Tinker AFB. Just nothing for me where we live right now.

I too am looking to purchase some more land and a couple of others and I are looking at SE Oklahoma for a joint purchase.

Be sure the property you buy conveys mineral rights with it and also be aware that the land in that area is rather "poor" for gardening or crops. Caveat emptor!
