Located on the outskirts of Ozark, Hurricane Creek is secluded but accessible. With 260’ of frontage on Campground road, and with only one entry gate leading into the property, it is easy to secure as well. Once you turn off the paved road into the tract, you will immediately sense the peace and solitude of rural Alabama. Several miles of well-maintained roads meander through the beautiful hardwoods and provide access to all parts of the tract. The front six acres are in the city limits of Ozark, the balance of the acreage is in the county.
The 12-acre lake is well-established and well-maintained. Fed by a year-round creek on the property, it maintains its level with a fresh supply of clean, cool water. It is stocked with Hybrid Florida Largemouth bass and Coppernose bream. This lake has the potential to produce some genuine, trophy-class bass. You can expect to enjoy some duck hunting there as well. Hurricane Creek runs for approximately two miles as it forms the East boundary of the tract. It is a wide, sandy-bottomed, gently-running creek that serves as a nice buffer and provides more recreational opportunities.
It is hard to find true hardwood tracts like Hurricane Creek. These hardwoods are well established and have a good variety of species and age classes throughout the stands. Rest assured there will be no shortages of food, cover, or shade for the wildlife. There are 50 acres of pre-merchantable Longleaf pines that provide some nice diversity with plenty of thick cover and browse. Scattered throughout the tract, the food plots are ready to be planted for the upcoming hunting season. The large power line that crosses the property on the East provides great visibility and some prime locations for shooting houses with long-range views close to the creek. The abundance of food and water, combined with the ideal wildlife habitat, makes Hurricane Creek a first-class deer and turkey hunting property.
With a beautiful view of the lake, the two-story enclosed barn features a kitchen, bathroom and living space along with lots of room to secure your UTVs, boats and other equipment. With all utilities in place, it is well suited for immediate use as a weekend getaway or hunting camp. There is also a 50’ x 100’ pole barn that will provide plenty of covered storage for your tractors, implements, deer stands, and other equipment.
With a lake, creek, hardwoods and pines, the Hurricane Creek tract is a true south Alabama treasure. This is a must-see property!
