This is your once in a lifetime opportunity to own Colwil Lake at the Current River. True gems like this 460+/- acres do not come on the market often & when they do it's worth your time to come take a look. The current owners have been true stewards of the land & this parcel has been preserved & maintained like a true outdoor conservationist would do. The 26+/- acre Current River Watershed Lake is covered with fish and a wide variety of species, including bass & bluegill. There have been many giant trophy largemouth caught and both released here as well. This lake if built today would be out of most buyers' budgets due to regulations & engineering. The property is right in the elk restoration areas of Shannon & Reynolds counties. Can you imagine having your MO Elk license and hunting right on your own outdoor paradise? Colwil is adjoining one of the largest landowners in the State of Missouri & is also one of the best land stewards around. To top it off the other adjoining property is the Ozark Scenic National Riverways land protecting the banks of the Current River, which is right at the end of the road that this ranch sits on. The 460+/- acre tract has unbelievable timber with a good mix of hardwood oaks and some softwoods. There are views from the Ozark Hills that are amazing, overlooking the river valley & Current River watershed lands. Several amazing build sites for your dream home or cabin. Colwil also has a tremendous population of wild turkey & whitetail deer. Even some migrating ducks use Colwil Lake & several call it home from wood ducks & bluewing teal to geese and a few mallards. The area also has sightings of black bears & is in bear management Zone Z. Mountain lions have also been spotted here. And if you have ever heard Wild Wild Horses by the Rolling Stones, you can see them right here on the banks of the Current. There are approx. 35 wild horses roaming freely between the 2 rivers surrounding the county seat of Eminence in Shannon County. The wild horses are a legally protected group in the area and are always a thrill to see! Just downstream from where the Jacks Fork meets the Current has been known for outstanding trophy smallmouth bass fishing & crystal-clear waters. This is the place for you if kayaking & canoeing is on your list of favorites. Super remote & secluded in Natural Ozark beauty that should stay this way for eternity. If you want a true get away from it all retreat Colwil Lake at the Current River is the place for you! One of Missouri's best of the best.
