Property Description

LandGuys has the privilege of offering this amazing 640 acres in Southern Knox County!

Here’s a chance to own one of the largest private lakes in the region with 72 surface acres and a depth of 75 feet and water clarity that’s hard to believe! There is a total of 100 acres of fishable water with 6 total lakes and numerous .5 to 1 acre ponds scattered all over the property. The big lake is large enough for water sports such as skiing, jet ski’s and clear enough for scuba diving! All of the lakes are full of fish and the fishing promises to be outstanding!

There has been extensive habitat reclamation with the planting of thousands of trees and erosion control work to minimize the runoff into the lakes. There is no agricultural runoff into the large 72 acre lake which helps explain the water clarity!

The young timber is thick and holds an amazing amount of Whitetails and upland game! There is virgin timber on the south end where Littler’s Creek flows through the acreage! Access is excellent with 2 gated entrances and a graveled road system makes driving the property a breeze!

There is an abundant amount of pheasant and quail -numerous birds have been seen and heard every time we’ve been out at the site! Waterfowl opportunities are excellent with numerous blinds already built and in place.

The connecting habitat to the south is incredible with approx 1500 acres of timber making up the south border and 20 acres of corn and alfalfa positioned in the area making excellent food plots!

The trophy potential for the whitetails appears to be incredible with the habitat in place including the timber thickets, food and abundant water!

The lake sizes are as follows…
72 acres
7 acres
5.5 acres
5 acres
4 & 2 acres and numerous smaller ponds!
