Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a private lake that offers excellent waterfowl hunting along the Illinois River. The property is located just north of Valley City in the northeastern part of the county. The property is majority water and has one primary lake and a secondary backwater area. The main part of the property is the northern lake, which is a little over 200 acres of water. An access road along the bottom side of the levee on the north end gives you access to a private boat ramp that allows you to launch your boat for early morning hunts. A second access road comes into the dividing point between the two water areas. This roadway provides easy access to the main lake's south end and the south area's north end. This roadway keeps water out of the main lake up to a certain point until the river reaches a certain level where it will go over a low spot in the road. The significant part about the main lake is the two water control structures that allow you to lower the water or retain water as you desire easily. If you want to pull the water down and plant millet around the edges of this lake, it allows you to do so. The two control structures are at different levels so that each one will control the water to different levels. One very unique attribute of the property is the bottom side of the south road was planted with cypress trees many years ago and is a unique attribute you don't see in this area very often. Putting multiple blinds on the main lake keeps the birds moving and provides action-packed hunts. The south part of the property has been used primarily as a refuge but would also be a great area to put a blind. In addition to waterfowl hunting, this property also offers fishing during the spring and summer months. This property is a must-see if you are in the market for an excellent waterfowl property that offers a private lake. Give the listing land specialist a call for more information or to schedule a private showing.
