Flint River Woodlands is an exceptional, multiple-use property for sale, offering superb recreational opportunities on the western bank of the Flint River and excellent potential as a timber investment.
Flint River Woodlands is on the western banks of the Flint River in Bainbridge, Georgia. From this southwestern corner of the state, it is a little under 40 miles to Tallahassee, FL and a short 50 miles to Albany, GA.
This property is easily accessed from Newton Road (GA Highway 253), which is a state-maintained paved road. Currently, there are two access points into the tract.
The highway runs the entire length of the western boundary and the Army Corps of Engineers right-of-way along the Flint River spans the entire eastern boundary. Northern and southern boundaries are easily identifiable with an old fence row to the south and a hardwood tree line on the north.
This property, located adjacent to the Flint River Corps line, offers numerous opportunities for hunting, with deer and turkey being the main pursuit. An occasional duck hunt are also scheduled. With a little vision and elbow grease, this tract could be dressed up to be an oasis of continued relaxation and recreation. Most of the tract consists of mid-rotation planted pines and established wildlife patches, with an occasional hardwood area added in. It is uniquely located just outside the city limits of Bainbridge in Decatur County, Georgia. This is the premier quail hunting region of the country. Finally, to complete the package, it's a short hop to the coast for some sun and surf.
The property is dominated by planted pine plantations ranging from nineteen to twenty-four years in age. Hurricane Michael damaged some of the timber, but the majority of the plantations are in good shape. No timber inventories have been completed post storm, but additional details are available upon request.
Sitting on the northern edge of town, this property is uniquely situated for river access northward and Lake Seminole to the south. The lower Flint River is renowned for its sport fishing opportunities. There are multiple species of bass, catfish, sunfish and bream. This is also one of only three rivers in the world where you can find the native shoal bass. These fish inhabit the swift moving currents and pockets around rocky shoals up and down the Flint. The “shoalie” is known for its powerful and acrobatic fighting when hooked. These fish are endemic to the Flint, Chattahoochee, and Apalachicola Rivers.
Additionally, just down river from Bainbridge is another fishing hotspot in Lake Seminole. With plentiful stocks of catfish, bass, bream and crappie, this lake is a must for avid anglers.
