Five minutes from Kerr Lake / Buggs Island – Good Hunting – Priced to Sell
These 36.4 acres of land is located off Hwy. 49 on Union Chapel Rd in Buffalo Junction, VA. The large timber was cut years ago and has come back in a natural growth of mixed hardwood and pines. There are still some nice trees on the parcel making a great food source for the deer and roosting habitat for the turkeys. Thickets are throughout the property making great bedding areas for the deer. A small wet weather creek meanders through the property providing water for the wildlife. The tract has good road frontage on Union Chapel Rd.
The property is located about 10 minutes from the lakeside community of the quaint town Clarksville. Clarksville is the only town located on Kerr Lake / Buggs Island. Downtown is made up mostly of mom & pop businesses and various restaurants.
Today, Clarksville is a central gathering and staging point for dozens of fishing tournaments each year – sometimes as many as four simultaneous tournaments in a single day! – As well as a growing center of technology and business. The peaceful, small-town atmosphere combined with close proximity to both major vacation areas (Virginia Beach area is within a 3-hour drive and the Appalachian Trail and Great Smoky Mountains are within a 4-6-hour drive) and to major urban centers such as Richmond Virginia, Washington DC, and the Triangle area of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill) makes Clarksville an ideal location for a sportsman’s weekend, getaway vacation, or to relocate and build your company!
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates this 50,000-acre reservoir and an additional 55,000 acres of surrounding land. In the 1950’s, Kerr Reservoir, also called Buggs Island Lake, was constructed primarily to provide for flood control and hydropower generation. The 900 miles of wooded shoreline stretch across three counties in Virginia and three in North Carolina. Along this shoreline you can find opportunities to boat, fish, camp, swim, picnic, hike, and hunt. Four campgrounds are operated by the Corps of Engineers, seven by the North Carolina State Parks and two by the Virginia State Parks. These campgrounds provide tent and trailer camping at both primitive and water/electric sites with boat ramps, bath facilities, beaches, playgrounds and hiking trails. In addition to campgrounds, the Corps of Engineers also operates several other day-use facilities for boat launching, swimming and picnicking. Intensive wildlife management techniques are employed in twenty-six developed areas, consisting of over 10,000 acres of land. These areas provide opportunities for hunting, hiking, and wildlife watching. All project lands are open to hunting with appropriate state licenses, except developed recreation areas, or unless otherwise posted. The reservoir provides habitat for many game fish species. Kerr Reservoir is widely known for large-mouth bass and striped bass fishing. Resident and non-resident fishing licenses from Virginia or North Carolina are recognized on all reservoir waters.
