Have you been searching for that perfect spot to spend those summer nights?  This beautiful 5+ acre lake on 38 acres is the perfect place.  Professionally stocked and managed, this is some of the best fishing I’ve ever seen.  38+/- acres total this property is ideally located only 30 minutes from Des Moines and just over 1 mile off pavement, it is deal for a future home site.

The farm consists of  24.22 FSA tillable acres with a 73.9 CSR2 and an additional 20.59 +/- ac surrounding the pond of potential hay ground with a 46.4 CSR2

The pond is approximately 5.8 acres of water area.  It has been professionally stocked and managed since construction, and the fishing is truly incredible.  My kids enjoyed a couple hours on the lake while I took the pictures of this property, and they caught over a dozen huge crappie, 15 – 20 large blue gill, perch, walleye, and the bass were hitting top water on almost every cast.  A few large catfish were even hooked, but they only landed 1, which was 5-6 lbs.

The farm is bordered by a road on the South side where multiple building sites overlook the lake, which open the possibility of recouping some cost or building a custom home of your design.

If you’re looking for a property only minutes from the Des Moines area, that the entire family can enjoy, this truly is a one of a kind place.
