As a bonus, you are less than 80 miles from the Gulf Coast beaches. With a perfect combination of fields, woods and water, this property is an ideal candidate for building a private retreat or hunting camp. Campbell Mill Creek provides all the potential to be a legacy tract that will produce memories for generations. Highlights include:

The shape and diversity of the tract sets it apart from other premium listings you might be considering. It is close to being a true rectangle with only six corners and straight boundary lines around the entire perimeter. The topography varies from level, to gently rolling, to sloping down into the creeks. There are multiple choices for the perfect home or camp site – would you rather build in a field on a hill for breathtaking views of the countryside or tuck it back in the large oaks for shade and seclusion? The vegetation includes open fields, old growth hardwoods, and young stands of naturally regenerating timber. The options are limitless. The farmland could easily be converted to pasture if you prefer to raise livestock instead of growing crops. There is certainly no shortage of shade and water. If you aren’t inclined to farm or raise cows you could also plant more trees and shape this property to maximize your wildlife habitat.
Farmland is in high demand in this area. The 135 acres of sandy loam soil are ideal for growing cotton, peanuts, corn, or soybeans (peanuts were grown in 2020). After the crops are harvested in the fall, these fields provide the perfect opportunity to plant a large cover crop of rye or wheat to feed your cows and produce some outstanding food plots for the winter months. If you don’t plan to do your own farming you can lease it to a local farmer for some supplemental income.
Campbell Mill Creek flows across the tract for over 4,000 feet. This is a beautiful, year-round, sandy-bottomed creek with some deep pools that will provide plenty of recreational opportunities and a fresh supply of cool water for the wildlife. Plenty of Indian artifacts and ancient shark’s teeth have been found sifting through its sands. Mauldin Creek crosses the southwest corner of the tract and an unnamed creek, formed by a natural spring on the property, flows through the middle. A stocked pond, fed by another natural spring, is located near the center of the property and maintains its water level even during the dry months.
The habitat is ideal, and the tract has everything necessary to attract and hold healthy populations of deer, turkey, quail, doves, and ducks. With food plots in all the right locations, and an internal trail system that allows complete access, you are already set up to start hunting. Turkeys love this combination of open fields for eating and strutting, the creek bottom hardwoods for roosting and eating acorns, and the cool water to drink. Deer are particularly fond of the “edges” created by the fields and the excellent combination of cover for bedding and the abundance of food. The tracks, scrapes and rubs provide ample evidence that there are plenty of big whitetails that call this place home.
Campbell Mill Creek is a special tract of land ready for new owners to start enjoying all it has to offer. Do not let this one pass you by!
