Diverse Recreation Tract with Lake Frontage on Tuttle Creek

Price: Pending
Acreage: 152
County: Riley
State: Kansas

Property Description

Located north of Manhattan, Kansas sits one of the most incredible tracts adjoining Tuttle Creek Lake. With top-end hunting opportunities, total seclusion surrounded by big cattle country, build site potential, and one-of-a-kind 360-degree views, this 152 +/- acre tract has it all!

The 152 +/- acres are made up of 85 +/- acres of native grassland, 55 +/- acres of mature timber stand made up of Burr Oak, Black Walnut, Sycamore, Cedar, and Hickory, and 12 +/- acres of established food plots currently planted to wheat and clover. The established internal trail system allows optimum access throughout the farm for UTV rides, farm implements, and endless access to and from multiple stand locations for any wind directions.

Known for top-end hunting, this farm and area hold the cream of the crop when it comes to genetics which is why it has been a long-time producer of 170’s-210’s whitetails year after year. Pairing that with 16 years of management, this farm has endless potential. Throughout the grasslands, endless wildflowers mixed with buffer strips, thickets, and timber rows provide the perfect habitat for quail. Two coveys are consistently bumped each time on the farm. Don’t forget about the turkeys that roost in the bottoms along the west slope in the high sycamore trees, several strutters this season dancing throughout the short grass. Add in primo waterfowl hunting with the mecca mash areas, this farm holds year-round recreation!

The remains of the original homestead, shed a glimpse of the past, with rock walls, limestone structures, a spring house, and the still-standing stone fireplace from the 2-story farmhouse that was brought up out of the valley basin and set on a new foundation during the construction of the Tuttle Creek Dam in 1954. What was once fertile tillable farm ground and the 10 towns of Stockdale, Randolph, Winkler, Cleburne, Irving, Blue Rapids, Shroyer, Garrison, Barrett, and Bigelow became Tuttle Creek Lake when dam construction was expedited in 1952, following the devastating 1951 flood, and fully complete in 1962 damming the Big Blue River, flooding the fertile basin and the remains of ghost towns. Incredible to see and hold a piece of history on this farm. Electricity and meter currently ran and set on the property along with a drilled water well.

With all the dynamics and diversity this farm holds, pairing that with the top-end hunting and a build site with some of the most incredible views in the Midwest, this farm is a lifetime farm and one to tour in person to appreciate all it has to hold!
