Some properties are on a river or creek, some are forested with timberland, others have bass ponds, some have farmland and orchards, native grass fields, and food plots, but seldom does a property have it all. This property does. It is loaded with deer, bear and huge flocks of turkey, geese, and ducks, plus doves, squirrels, rabbits and grouse all attracted to a diverse mix of habitat that provides food, breeding cover, and roosting habitat. The susquehanna river was rated one of the top 5 smallmouth bass rivers in the usa.

The property is available for development or for private use as a storage yard for forest products and minerals, farmland, comes with railroad frontage for a commercial rail siding, hunting land, recreational land,, campground, mobile home park, contractor's yard, rv park with boat storage, winery, vineyards, cider orchard, commercial horse stables, and other.

Potential for development

the property is located in a rural agricultural zoning area which permits a single-family home to be built on 1 acre and a two-family home to be built on 1.5 acres. Subdivision into smaller sizes is possible.

Fishing the nearby susquehanna river (the “river”)

the river is among the five best smallmouth bass rivers in the country. Attached is an excerpt from bassmaster magazine, “the 5 best smallmouth rivers in the country.” Which also produces trophy-size muskie, walleye, and catfish. The river can be fished from canoe, kayak, boats with outboard motors, or the choice of most river rats, a jet boat outboard which requires very little draft.

Ponds, creek, fishing

the property has multiple bass ponds loaded with bass that are fed from subsurface water. So, no expensive dams or spillways to maintain or insure. No one except the seller has pond rights. Keeler creek runs through the property and empties into the susquehanna river. A pennsylvania pond or lake with a dam can be a very large liability because of the way the pennsylvania department of environmental protection (dep) classifies lakes into several categories including "high hazard." Insurance on high hazard dams is very expensive and often unobtainable. You don't want to own a pond or a lake with a dam classified as high hazard by the pennsylvania dep. We insure these ponds for very little. The ponds contain bass and bluegill are home to several species of ducks and geese in season. The ponds are easily fished from canoes, kayak, or the shore. They can also be used for fish hatcheries.

Exceptional hunting habitat
the property has always sported great deer and bear hunting because of a spectacular mix of habitats. There are hundreds of nearby acres of farm fields growing field corn and vegetables; a dozen ponds; coldwater creeks; planted orchards, wild apple and crabapple trees; native stands of eastern black walnut and hickorys; mature hardwood forest consisting mostly of mast producing red, white, black and chestnut oak, dense hemlock evergreen forest, areas of native grassland, and early successional forest of young aspen and cottonwood, all combine to provide everything deer, bear, and other wildlife require. Huge flocks of ducks, geese, and turkeys sometimes numbering 50, are attracted to the river and the nearby cornfields and also provide for great hunting. There is a healthy population of doves and ruffed grouse on the property which has multiple coverts where grouse can be had. The cover is a mix of mature woodlands with some young woodlands and heavy brushy areas providing both nesting and roosting cover that the grouse need. Bobcats are on site and den in the cliffs and rocky areas to the east and southeast. Coyote and fox are available for trapping and harvesting. Black bear are numerous and near 400-pound bear have been harvested here.
The property is currently leased – from year to year and cancelable at any time by seller - to a hunting club which leases from early september through mid-january.
Abundant groundwater available from subsurface and the susquehanna river:

abundant groundwater is available on the property. Ground water withdrawal for irrigation and other purposes or direct withdrawal from the susquehanna river (“the river”) is subject to rules and regulations of the susquehanna river basin commission (srbc). All new (post-1970) consumptive uses that are greater than 20,000 gallons per day for any consecutive 30-day period are subject to the srbc’s consumptive use make-up regulation. Agriculture is currently exempt from the srbc’s consumptive use restrictions. The landowner has a non-exclusive right to withdraw and use unlimited water for on-site household and domestic usage, but must register all withdrawals exceeding 10,000 gpd under the pennsylvania water resources planning act, and/or secure project review for withdrawals of 100,000 gpd or consumptive use exceeding 20,000 gpd, pursuant to the susquehanna river basin commission. Srbc regulations are subject to change and the above should not be relied upon in making any decisions on water availability.
