Blue Sky Ranch BORDERS the Mark Twain National Forest along the northern and eastern borders. This is public land that you can use! There are many 1,000’s of acres of national forest for you to explore and enjoy. This effectively turns your lot into a MUCH larger property. You can build a cabin or camp on your property and have access to the entire national forest for hunting.
This part of Missouri is absolutely gorgeous, and the property is just down the road from the town of Winona. Winona has everything you need for a quick trips to the store or bank, and it has schools as well. Only 30 minutes down the road is the town of Mountain View which is a little larger. Mountain View has a Wal-Mart and a theater. Another 30 minutes past that is the city of West Plains which is a pretty large city which has everything you'd ever need!
From the property, it is 11 miles to Clearwater Lake, 8 miles to Miller Lake, and 13 miles to Van Buren, Missouri which is the home of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways Headquarters! The surrounding area is very beautiful with gorgeous views, lush foliage, and large oak and pine trees.
The property also features wet weather creeks through the northern and southern sides of the property. They run for about half of the year from what we've seen. They don’t have water in them all the time but when they do, they are beautiful.
This property has been logged, as you can see in some of the photos, so there is some "firewood" laying around. This would be perfect for camping or heating your home! It was not clear cut; there are still plenty of large trees around. Just a little bit of work, and your lot can be even nicer than the surrounding national forest!
Access to the property is by maintained County Road 19-580 (you can see what the sign looks like in the photos, most maps refer to it as Old Tram Rd) and is only a mile or two from paved Highway 19 and is less than 10 miles to U.S. Highway 60. We have made a private unmaintained dirt road which takes you to each of the lots. I would recommend a truck or 4WD for this road.
Your interest rate will vary based on your down payment. The more you put down, the better rate you receive.

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.
