The 122 +/- acre Cotton Boat Shoals Tract is a newly listed property with a cabin, located on the beautiful Flint River in Dougherty County, Georgia. It offers approximately 0.6 miles of river frontage on the west bank. Upriver from the property is Dougherty County and State of Georgia owned river green space, and just two parcels downriver is Ted Turner’s famous Nonami Plantation, then Blue Springs Plantation, and then the Melons Pineland Plantation. This very well could be your last chance to purchase coveted Flint River land, especially in Albany’s quail plantation district, famous not just for fine quail hunting, but also huge bucks and gobblers.
What’s the story on the name Cotton Boat Shoals (also known as Cotton Boat Farms)? At the property there are some shoals known as Cotton Boat Shoals, where in the 1800s a cotton boat/barge shipping cotton to Apalachicola wrecked. The remains of the boat are still there.
This recreational land for sale offers awesome duck hunting and hog hunting as they migrate up and down the river. Obviously, there is great fishing all up and down the river, especially for the strong fighting shoal bass, huge stripers, and massive cats. Interested in arrowheads and other Indian artifacts? If yes, you are interested in the Cotton Boat Shoals tract.
The cabin is a well cared for 875 heated/cooled sq. ft. 1BD/1BA home with a nice kitchen, living area with fireplace, plus a 200 sq. ft. screened porch, situated on a bluff with great views down to the river bottom. There is an extensive road network throughout the property, and deeded access to a private paved boat ramp. There is also a pole barn for boat and equipment storage.
