As we turned into this property from blacktop South Dakota Highway 47, we saw the potential in this property for building a huge private country home on acreage. The western feel of the hills and open views is freeing. This northern tract has a hand-laid dry-stack in the face of the dam of the former Works Progress Administration Dam. This makes a scenic and historical backdrop for landscaping, but there's also tremendous potential to restore the lake into the property's focal point. Little Bluestem and Yucca Plant were noted on the property and contributed to the mixed-grass prairie and western ambiance.
In addition to excellent access along a blacktop state highway, utilities also were planned. This tract has a meter pit already on the property for a rural water connection. The Missouri River is a short drive from the property. Snake Creek Recreation Area and Marina are approximately 30 minutes east, and Landing Creek offers a place to launch smaller fishing boats within about 15 minutes of the property. Lake Francis Case on the Missouri River is approximately 100,000 surface acres between Fort Thompson Dam and Fort Randall Dam and a perennial Walleye factory with a very healthy population of Smallmouth Bass. Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge is a spectacular area to take in the waterfowl migration and is approximately 80 miles southeast of the property. Chamberlain, South Dakota, has medical facilities and a regional airport about 40 miles north of the property.
