Hay Ground, Timber, Lakes, Ponds And Great Hunting


This property has a plethora of recreational opportunities and tons of wildlife including deer and turkeys. Large ponds and lakes from old strip pits are perfect for boating and fishing and this property sets up great for a recreational retreat or a family weekend getaway. The property is great for activities such as camping, hiking, ATV riding, fishing, water sports, hunting, and more! I have sold several of these reclaimed coal mine properties and they are perfect recreational properties for a reasonable price.
