River Road Preserve

Property Overview

Set within the beautiful Lower Chattahoochee River corridor in eastern Jackson County, Florida, the 711-acre River Road Preserve possesses distinct qualities that make it attractive for both recreational and timberland uses. For buyers who desire less acreage, the owner is willing to subdivide the property into 353 and 358-acre tracts.

Among River Road Preserve’s many attributes, perhaps the most unique is its adjacency to the 7,952-acre Apalachee Wildlife Management Area that flanks its eastern boundary. This land effectively serves as an extension to River Road Preserve – a permanent greenbelt barrier teeming with deer, waterfowl, quail, and turkey. Of particular note, the South Tract provides access to the Chattahoochee River and Lake Seminole through a river tributary while nearby Three Rivers State Park, Chattahoochee State Park, Neals Landing, and Buena Vista Landing provide public boat access. Lake Seminole is a 37,500-acre water body nationally known for its largemouth bass, wide variety of plant and animal life, and bird watching. Its varied geologic features include rugged ravines, cypress ponds, lime sinks and hardwood and pine forests.

For timberland investors, this area has a long history of owners who prize the high quality timber that grows here and the access to a strong timber market. River Road Preserve in particular is coveted for its productive soils (75 site index), high percentage of plantable area (87%), high stocking, and use of excellent genetics for the loblolly pines that were planted in 2014. Being able to combine the virtues of a solid recreational tract with the economics of a superior timber tract makes for a compelling investment.

River Road Preserve enjoys nearly two miles of paved road frontage on River Road (County Road 271) and is conveniently located just 35 miles from Dothan and 60 miles from Tallahassee. Because of the abundant amount of land owned by the Army Corps of Engineers, the surrounding area remains largely free of development and is dotted with timberlands, family farms, and scenic water bodies.
