We are in the beginning stages of developing a RV Resort. In the meantime we thought someone would like to do some good old boon dock camping and enjoy the beautiful forestry before we begin to build on the property. This property is a little short of 8 acres and has a stream that runs though it. Directions to the property: Take 64B then turn left onto highway 284. After the railroad tracks on the left is a road with a sign that says CR7200. You take that gravel road to you reach the end. The land sits behind a mobil home on the right. Signs are out and posted.
