experience tranquility

We live in a noisy world. Smartphones, meetings, traffic, kids’ sporting events…the list goes on. And while life “on the grid” is often good, sometimes it turns into a grind. How do we mute the noise, if only for a time? Just long enough to share in celebration with loved ones, reflect and plan with your team, or just retreat to a place where we can think and be free?

Experience the tranquility, peace and adventure unique to Pogue Ranch, tucked within the breathtaking Ouachita Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma. Team retreat, family reunion, wedding, hunting, or weekend getaway…scroll on to learn more!


Retreat the Team

Your team is deep in the hustle of performing…working in the business. But what about working on the business? Because we’re often consumed by our environment, it’s tough to do both, well. Think about it for a moment. Our environments are so noisy…noisy with the constant hum of life in the business. And while life is often good, if we don’t prioritize working on the business, working in it becomes an incessant grind.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Reunite the Family

Someone once said, “Family is like branches on a tree; we all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.” If you’re exploring places to bring your branches all back together again, you’re in the right place! At Pogue Ranch, your family can come together free from the distractions of “the grid”. Experience the great outdoors in the Ouachita Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma, while enjoying the comforts of your five star accommodations.

Meet Paul and Judy


A few years ago, Paul and Judy Pogue went on a hunt, a hunt for a place off the grid. They were in search of a place where they could disconnect from the hustle and grind of life to reconnect the family in fellowship with God, experience some tech-free adventures, and hunt.

Tucked within the breathtaking Ouachita Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma, they discovered the ranch, more than 2,000 acres of scenic views, pine trees scattered across rocky terrain, flowing streams, bustling wildlife, and the tranquility of being off the grid.

As they spent more time at the ranch, they had more stories to share with friends and family. These stories often turned into invitations for friends from church and business to come experience the unique tranquility, peace and adventure they were experiencing. As more people came, and God moved in Paul, it became clear that the ranch was made for sharing. And it needed to be more than a casual thing. After prayer and doing some research, Paul and Judy made the commitment. They committed to make Pogue Ranch the preferred destination ranch in the region.

Seeing the faces of people after they arrive and begin to soak it in, it’s almost unreal. The warmth, the relief, the excitement. It’s pure bliss just to witness it. Welcome to Pogue Ranch. Enjoy your stay.
