The Ranches of Montauk Park is a secluded property in the gorgeous Ozarks of Missouri. The Ranches of Montauk Park is comprised of 15 large acreage estates which encompass five stocked ponds and incredible views of rolling hills and pastures. The property is located just minutes from Montauk State Park, and Salem, Missouri.
Offering both cleared and wooded lots, The Ranches of Montauk Park has something to offer for everyone looking for the opportunity of living a casual country lifestyle. This land is located on a private drive which runs off of Averys Hollow, roughly a quarter mile down from SR-32, a nice paved highway.
This land is perfect for all get-away-seekers, nature lovers, hunters, and general "outdoorsy" people, etc. that want to be in the woods ... off the beaten path ... but, still have access (by way of a public year round road,) right up to the private unmaintained drive leading into their land. The land itself is 90% wooded, only slightly cleared to make room for a dirt road along the western side.
Fifteen home sites will have been carved from 106 acres of rolling hills, gentle pasture and dense forest lands. The property comes with 6 man-made ponds. Several lots have pond frontage and the largest pond is available as a public area for all land owners to enjoy.
Mature trees cover over 40 percent of the acreage. We've taken steps to utilize and protect the natural setting of this property while providing ideal home sites for our future residents.
We took most the photos of the property late this fall and it was about to rain, so things weren't as green as we wish they were, but just imagine when everything is in bloom and absolutely gorgeous! Even when everything was turning brown it was still very pretty.
This land is well suited for a secluded recreational get-a-way, OR a permanent home, it's really a great location. Near enough to town to be able to just make a run to the store if you need to, but far enough away to not be bothered by anybody.

Dent County, Missouri
Dent County was taken out of Crawford and Shannon Counties by an act passed by the Missouri General Assembly to take effect February 10, 1851. The county's name comes from an early settler, Lewis Dent, who was the new counties first representative to the legislature. The first county officers appointed were Justices G. C. Breckinridge (president), Samuel Hyer, Jr., and Jotham Clark. Joseph Milsaps was sheriff and David Henderson was clerk. They met at Eaphraim Bressie's about 2 miles northwest of the present Salem on Spring Creek which was on the "old White River road."
Some of the first settlers who came here in 1829 were William Thornton, Daniel Troutman, and Daniel M. Wooliver. Among those who followed were William Blackwell, Elisha Nelson, Jerry Potts, Eaphraim Bressie, Robert Leonard, Abner Wingfield, Lewis Dent, Wilson Craddock, Thomas Higgonbotham, Jack Berry, Silas Hamby, Smith Wofford, Turkill NcNeill, Dr. John Hyer, Samuel Hyer, and David Lenox. Among other families include the: Coppedge, Watkins, Skiles, Brown, Callahan, Welch, Snelson, Burlison, Massey, Vaughan, Taff, Arthur, Lamb, Freeman, Henderson, Agee, Johns, Bates, Jamison, Honey, Sims, McSpadden, Sinclair, Simmons, Organ, Love, and Orchard.
Most of these settlements were made on the Meramec, Spring Creek, and Dry Fork. Most of the settlers were from Tennessee, Kentucky and North Carolina.
Dent County is a sportsman’s paradise, and prides itself on its world-class deer and turkey hunting, trout fishing, and ready access to some of the most beautiful canoeing rivers in the world. With great schools, excellent health care, a supportive business environment, vast areas of public land, and a deep commitment to faith and family, Salem offers values and amenities that are seldom found in such abundance.
Many people have found that the Salem area is an ideal place to retire. Low land and home prices, a moderate climate, and low cost of living all combine to make retirement dollars stretch as far as possible. And with friendly neighbors, a strong sense of community, and access to services often found only in much larger cities, Salem is indeed a welcoming place to enjoy your golden years.
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.
