Activities & Amenities
1350+/- Acre High-Fence Recreational Farm; Exceptional Trophy Deer & Turkey Hunting, 36-acre Lake, 3+ miles on Scenic Bassetts Creek, duck ponds, camp houses, & More!
Bassetts Creek Farm is 1350+/- Acres of highly improved recreational land in Washington County, Alabama. The property lies on both sides of Bassetts Creek for over 3 miles; a beautiful & navigable creek that is well known for its great fishing. Bassetts Creek serves as an anchor for all of the wildlife and is a priceless asset on a high quality recreational property.
The whitetail hunting is unlike anything else you will find in Washington County. Artificially inseminated deer were released on the property for years and have been managed & fed protein year around for maximum growth potential. These management efforts have created a whitetail hunting experience that many will never have the chance to experience. Mature bucks can reach 140-150” class range. 12 large food plots are positioned throughout with an excellent road system.
Much like the deer herd, the turkeys have been closely managed with year around trapping & habitat enhancements for nesting. A turkey hunter understands habitat is key for turkeys and will see every habitat a turkey needs to flourish. The turkey hunting is excellent by all standards and is a direct result of the management practices made possible from the protection of the high fence. Lower predator counts, no hogs, and good habitat have sustained an excellent population of wild turkeys.
The abundant water present here is what sets it apart from other nice properties. A 36 Acre Lake was constructed & stocked with bass and bream in the 80’s and is great fishing, swimming, kayaking, etc. A quaint rustic cabin was built on the lake from timber harvested on the property and offers beautiful 270-degree lake views. Other water features include a flood controlled duck impoundment ready to be cleared and planted, Bassetts Creek, & other small tributaries.
The timber value is substantial with an estimated value of 1000-1100 per acre. It’s a mix of natural pine and hardwood timber and has been managed with fire for years. Portions of the timber could be harvested today and replanted for immediate & future income.
The main camp is original to the property and was renovated with modern appliances and has all the comforts of home, including city water. Several outbuildings surround the camp house for equipment storage as well as a custom concrete bulk fertilizer building, custom cypress deer cleaning shed equipped with walk-in cooler, stainless steel sink & electric deer hoist.
A ready to build home site equipped with power and water are already in place. The home site sits on high ground overlooking Bassetts Creek and is surrounded by giant hardwood and pine timber. It’s a picture-perfect home site for someone wanting to create their dream Lodge or camp.
The quality of the animals, abundant water features, manicured habitat & prosperous timber is what puts this property in a separate asset class from the rest. Bassetts Creek Farm is four decades of good land stewardship and game management and its available for the first time in 40 years. For an exclusive look, contact Tim James today.
