Description

New York land completely wooded with over a mile of frontage on Cassadaga Creek for sale. This tract is completely forested with a fantastic gravel access road that leads to a small opening near the road front and another at the end of the gravel road either of which is an ideal place to camp or park a camper to fully enjoy this interesting property. The forest is dominated by hemlock, cherry and soft maple along with other hardwood species. Deer and turkey sign here is abundant, no doubt that they enjoy the habitat diversity here as their evidence is consistent throughout the entire property.The entire tract is listed on the NYS DEC maps as wetland. This is, however, a fully wooded wetland which is wet during the wettest parts of the year in pockets on the property and drier during the warmest part of the year. You can walk to all parts of the property and are not impeded by water as it is not a swamp! Timber was harvested across the entire property within the past few years which also shows how limited the "wetland" truly is here.Besides the great hunting, the other keynote here is the more than 1 mile of frontage on Cassadaga Creek. Cassadaga Creek comprises the entire west boundary of the property and is generally stocked annually by the DEC with brown trout. It is a nice, underutilized local fishery that does not get much fishing pressure. Many decades ago, a prior landowner gave the State deeded fishing rights for the public to fish the stream through this property and to be able to walk within 33 feet of the stream on the adjacent streambank. There is no evidence of that use by others as this is a difficult stretch of water to get to unless you own an adjacent property.The property is currently leased for hunting and that lease will be canceled upon the sale of this property if desired by the new owner. In addition, the seller does not own the oil, gas or mineral rights as they were reserved by a prior owner. Boundary lines are blazed and painted blue and posted by the lessee.The property is close to Cassadaga Lake, Bear Lake, Chautauqua Lake, Lake Erie and the area snowmobile trail system. Additional NYS Lands are nearby as well.
