Below you'll find complete information including photographs, maps, and a list of frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us!
Bordered By A National Forest:
Antler Ridge borders the Mark Twain National Forest along the east and the Pioneer Forest Conservation Area along the south and western borders.
That means you'll have 420,000 protected, public acres that you can use and explore. You'll have access to the entire national forest for hunting, camping, hiking, and endless other recreational opportunities.
Being adjacent to a National Forest bring with it two major benefits:
1) The forest is patrolled by USDA Forest Service Rangers -- and Rangers make great neighbors!
2) Bordering a National Forest helps maintain the value of your land and makes it more desirable.
Incredible Views & Amazing Scenery:
This part of Missouri is absolutely gorgeous. It features the kind of panoramic views that only mountainous regions can provide.
Each tract has incredible scenery and the forest features lush foliage, as well as large oak, pine, and fruit trees. It attracts visitors throughout the year including spring and fall, when the color changes in the forest.
In the spring... serviceberry, redbuds, and dogwoods paint the winter landscape in pinks and whites.
In the fall... the oak-hickory forest transforms from greens to yellows, peaches, reds, burgundies, and dark purples. The height of fall color is usually mid-October.
Hunting: Abundant whitetail deer and turkey are present. Other game species include: quail, woodcocks, doves, ducks, geese, rabbits, raccoons, squirrels, opossums, woodchucks, bobcats, and coyotes.
In addition, an Elk restoration program is in the works. The goal of the program is to re-establish this native species. Hunting will be used to control the herd's population.
For hunting, you typically need at least 5+ acres of land. So our Antler Ridge tracts are big enough for hunting... but also provide great value.
Note: the adjacent 420,000 acres of National Forest land can also be used for hunting!
Deer season starts: Bow, September 15th; Gun, November 8th
Turkey season starts: Mid-April
Viewing: This region is widely known for its wildlife due to the concentrated areas of conservation lands.
Antler Ridge is a great location for viewing and photographing wildlife. The neighboring forest has approximately 320 species of birds, 75 species of mammals, and 125 species of amphibians and reptiles.
Creeks, Streams, And Rivers:
The major river in the area is the Current River (also known as the Ozark National Scenic Riverways). It's approximately 7 miles to the south, off Scenic Highway 19.
Sinking Creek is 2.5 miles to the west via the county road or 1/4 mile to the north, down in the hollow.
The smaller wet-weather or spring-fed creeks run mostly during the rainy season in the Spring. They don’t have water in them all the time, but when they do, they're quite beautiful. These creeks also serve to attract the many deer and turkey that inhabit this region of Missouri.
Most major rivers like the Current and Sinking Creek are full year round.
Access Roads And Nearby Towns:
Roads: Each tract is just minutes away from the paved highway. Access to the property is via maintained dirt County Road 2221 and is only a short drive from paved Missouri State Highway "A" and Scenic Missouri State Highway 19.
There are numerous private unmaintained dirt roads throughout the development that access every tract. The roads can be rough, so we recommend a truck for access. Most roads leading to public lands are state maintained without any cost to you.
Nearby towns: Salem, MO is 31 miles to the north. It has a Wal-Mart, hospital, and most other typical facilities.
Eminence, MO is 26 miles to the south. It's a smaller town with fewer facilities.
These tracts are perfect for a wide variety of recreational activities. You'll enjoy hunting, camping, ATV & motorcycle riding, hiking, biking, horseback riding, bird watching, GEOcaching, wildlife viewing, and many other activities.
Of course, camping is always one of the most popular activities in the area. But remember -- because you own the land -- you're also free to build a permanent hunting cabin, if you choose.
In addition, fishing, swimming, floating, rafting, tubing, and canoeing are extremely popular because of the spring-fed, crystal clear rivers in the area. Canoe rental shops line the roads throughout this region.
Antler Ridge is a recreational wonderland!
The property was recently logged along some of the ridges -- however there are still plenty of large trees.
The advantage of clear cutting is that it saves you money when clearing your land. In addition, many of the cut trees still remain on the property, so you'll have plenty of available firewood.
The area features rolling hills, but there are also numerous level sites in the valleys and along the ridges and roads. These sites are just waiting for you to setup a camping spot or put up a small hunting cabin.
In addition, this development has been professionally surveyed and was marked (so you'll know where your property lines are).

Montauk State Park
Just down the road, and offering some of the finest trout fishing in the Midwest, Montauk State Park is located at the headwaters of the famed Current River. The park's springs combine with tiny Pigeon Creek to supply 43 million gallons of water to the river each day. The cool, clear stream is an ideal home for rainbow trout, and the scenic valley is the perfect setting for camping, hiking and other outdoor pursuits.
Anglers descend on Montauk State Park from March 1 to Oct. 31 for the official trout season, and on winter weekends for a catch-and-release season. After a day of fishing, you can tour the park's trout hatchery, managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Early settlers first established Montauk as a self-sufficient community in the early 1800s. A gristmill, built in 1896, is open seasonally for tours.
For visitors wishing to spend a night or more in the park, Montauk offers a wide variety of choices. The large campground, equipped with modern restrooms, hot showers and dump stations, features both basic and electric sites. The park offers rental cabins with kitchens, modern fourplex cabins and motel rooms for guests choosing to spend the night indoors. A modern dining lodge opens daily during the trout season and on weekends during the catch-and-release season.
Mark Twain National Forest
Mark Twain National Forest is just down the road.
Missouri's only national forest, the Mark Twain, encompasses roughly 1.5 million acres, mostly within the Ozark Highlands. Located across southern Missouri and northern Arkansas, the Ozark Highlands are an ancient landscape characterized by large permanent springs, over 5,000 caves, rocky barren glades, old volcanic mountains and nationally recognized streams. Portions of the Ozarks were never under oceans, nor were the areas glaciated.
A trademark of the Mark Twain is plant and animal diversity. The area is described by The Nature Conservancy as a “biologically rich ecological resource.” The eastern upland oak hardwood and southern pine forests converge here with the drier western bluestem prairie of the Great Plains, creating a distinctive array of open grassy woodlands and savannas. This rich mixture of unique, diverse and ecologically complex natural communities (some 65 in all) provides a home for nearly 750 species of native vertebrate animals and over 2,000 plant species. The number of species that are endemic or restricted solely to the Ozarks eco-region (almost 200 species) rivals those found in the tropics or glacial eco-regions.
Geologic features associated with the karst terrain and igneous outcroppings of the Ozarks provide a wide variety of interest to the landscape. There are sheer rock faces, underground caverns, natural bridges, sinkholes, knobs and caves throughout the Forest. Caves provide habitat for unique animals like cave salamanders and southern cave fish. Shut-in creeks, whose enormous rock boulders restrict flow, create nationally renowned white water kayaking and canoeing opportunities.
Due to the karst topography, there is an abundance of natural springs found in the area. The Ozarks are home to the world's largest collection of “first magnitude” springs (those with over 65 million gallons of water daily flow). Almost 3,000 springs feed rivers and streams that flow year round. Many of these streams are so clear that ten feet of depth appears to be only one foot deep.
Greer Spring, the second largest in Missouri, is considered to be the most pristine and scenic in the state. Discharging an average of 222 million gallons of water per day, Greer Spring more than doubles the flow of the Eleven Point River. The importance of the water resource of the Mark Twain is exemplified by the designation of the Eleven Point Scenic River, one of the first Wild and Scenic Rivers in the nation. These natural features are a destination for many visitors to Missouri.
Today the Forest's large land base is many things to many people, containing some of Missouri's most beautiful and desirable landscapes and providing natural settings critical for the tourism industry. The diverse Ozark topography is the keystone of many recreational opportunities. The Forest provides hiking, hunting, mountain biking, horseback and OHV riding areas that complement other agencies. Over 45 million people are within a day's drive of its unique features and recreation opportunities.
