Situated just northeast of Babcock in southern Wood County, this off-grid 120 acres offers an affordable large tract with the potential to establish a rustic retreat. Departing a dead end road, the half mile easement ends in well-established opening presenting the opportunity to park your camper overlooking a small pond. While not likely to be conducive for a permanent residence (electricity, etc.), a primitive cabin would make for a great place to create new family memories.
A fantastic mix of aesthetic woodlands and forested wetlands offer something for everyone (including the wildlife). Scenic hardwoods in multiple age classes create secure wildlife habitat while offering incredible fall scenery for your viewing pleasure. Towering white pines can be found scattered throughout the property. Additionally, a younger stand of pine provides winter thermal cover. Approximately 50 +/- acres of wetland contain thick willow and tag alder. In addition to bumping deer from this cover while walking the property, I also flushed a few grouse. Currently, 80 acres are enrolled in MFL CLOSED providing tax relief and sound forest management while maintaining privacy.
An old trail system is still present throughout the parcel. While in need of some TLC, there is plenty of potential to create a network of atv and hiking routes throughout. If 120 acres isn’t enough space, over 1,000 acres of Wood County public land is located right next door.
Please note there is currently no parking or driveway access from State Hwy 173.
