2.254 acres of land for sale in Edwards, Missouri at Lake of the Ozarks, a beautiful forested subdivision about an hour W of Osage Beach, and two hours SE of Kansas City, Missouri. A corner lot hidden in the forest with beautiful fall colors making a canopy over the road making me sing "over the river and thru the woods"! Nice! The subdivision adjoins the Lake of the Ozarks and there are three boat ramps in to the lake for the private use of the property owners as well as some interior stocked lakes - a fishermans paradise! Its a beautiful area with deer and turkeys running around!

All of the photos were taken of the property from a few different parts in November 2007. I thought it was a cool chunk of land nicely covered with beautiful fall colored leaves in the trees and on the ground. The property is fairly flat along O'Brien Place and then slopes towards the north down to Anne Drive offering pretty views of the hillsides below across the street! To the SW and W are pretty views of the treed hills. There were lots of tall trees with pretty fall colors, pretty tangled wood - a very pretty setting. It was a quiet area and I could hear the breeze blowing thru the trees.

It is a corner lot and was easy to find and I included a photo of the signs at the intersection of O'Brien and Anne Dr. The graded roads had recently been mowed making for easy access! The sun was streaming down to the forest floor casting some big tall tree shadows across the valley floor and lighting it up every where else - a very pretty setting! There is power only one lot west along Missouri State Route V. You will need to contact the local power company to verify and get the cost estimate to bring it to the property. The property is located at the very southern part of the subdivision by State Rout V as seen in the subdivision map, so you're a quick drive to the paved road!

The property is zoned residential allowing for homes and modular homes. This unit does not allow camping on the property but you have access to the community use area where you can park your RV for free. There are three boat launches into Lake of the Ozarks and the park consists of five miles of shoreline property! It has three interior private lakes that are over 20 acres each that are stocked. Many people plan on retiring here some day and just enjoy it as a weekend or vacation getaway with their RVs for now.

If you plan on visiting this subdivision please read further information in the "additional photos" section of this listing. This is a private subdivision that covers over 12,000 acres and has many roads that are a maze! We will need to call you in a gate pass ahead of time. There are restrictive covenants on this subdivision and we have supplied a link to those covenants on the land owners association website. A few highlights of these covenants includes, homes and some modular homes allowed, no manufactured homes, no hunting, camping allowed up to three weeks at a time on certain units, free RV area allowed for all owners in the community area, no pigs or chickens, and horses allowed on lots that are a minimum of 4 acres per lot. Please visit the land owners website which I have included a link to below to read all of the covenants.

I think this is a great spot hidden in the woods to bring your family and enjoy the lake. Smile4u became a fan of Lake of the Ozarks on facebook and I really have enjoyed seeing the photos they share of people enjoying the lake over the many years! Yesterday it was an old black and white photo of kids out playing on a dock and I wondered if those people still went and enjoyed the lake today. Imagine your own place to get away for a few weeks at a time and there is no need to pay for a space to park your RV or hotel because you own it! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Benton County And Forbes Lake of the Ozarks Subdivision Photos

Forbes Lake of the Ozarks is a beautiful 12,800 acres located in Benton and Camden Counties in Missouri. Consisting of over five miles of shoreline wrapped around the Lake of the Ozarks, it also has three interior lakes that average over 20 acres each, three private boat launches for property owners, a picnic area and an RV park for the sole use of the property owners.

It was subdivided back in the 1980's by Malcolm Forbes, previous publisher of Forbes Magazine. I found this information in Peoples Magazine from their 1984 tidbits section: "Residents of Forbes Lake of the Ozarks, a new community near Warsaw, Mo., won't live on such traditionally named streets as Oak or Maple. Developer Malcolm Forbes, who bills his family-owned magazine as the "Capitalist Tool," named many of his streets after famous capitalists. Home buyers can choose such locations as Charlap Lane (named for E. Paul Charlap, chairman of the Savin Corporation), Araskog Drive (for Rand V. Araskog, chairman of ITT) or Straetz Drive (for Robert P. Straetz, chairman of Textron Inc.). Forbes also named streets for his five children and at least one friend: Off the main drag, Forbes Road, is a curving byway called Nancy Reagan Circle."

There is an abundance of wildlife there walking around as if they were the only ones there! Turkeys and deer roam about hiding in the trees and walking across the roads with no worries!

The roads are marked and it is easy to navigate your way around this beautiful subdivision. Some of the roads are gated to keep out poachers and dumpers as this is a private subdivision.

It is located in Edwards, Missouri, about an hours drive west of Osage Beach where you will find a 100 store outlet mall and a 30 minute drive northwest to the town of Warsaw. Warsaw has a population of about 2,070 and is the closest Wal-Mart.

It is centrally located to many nearby cities: 45 miles east of Osage Beach, 125 miles SE of Kansas City, 223 miles SW of St Louis, and 93 miles North of Springfield. It is heavily forested with streams flowing down to the lake. The varieties of trees is spectacular with oak, walnut, hickory, elm, and sycamore.

The subdivision is zoned for homes or modular homes. Some of the units allow RV use - you can find these units in their covenants which are online at Forbes Land Owner's Association. You are allowed to camp up to three weeks at a time on lots in those units or build a home. We have tried to note in the listings those that allow camping on them.

There is a community use RV park where you can stay at for free for up to three weeks at a time if you are a property owner! The bathhouses and dump site are open during the warmer months but you can still stay there even if they are not open. A few more covenant highlights that we are commonly asked about are: there is a gun range there for the owners but no hunting is allowed in the subdivision, no pigs or chickens, horses are allowed on lots that are a minimum of 4 acres per lot. Please visit the land owners website to read all of the covenants.

Prior to visiting this subdivision you will need to contact us by email or phone so we can hook you up with the proper map to drive around this subdivision as well as a gate pass. This is a private subdivision that covers over 12,000 acres and has many roads that are a maze! We purchased a very large subdivision map through the LOA that we use to drive around this subdivision and you can purchase this map through them as well or we can mail it to you in the snail mail. You must make arrangements to receive this map prior to being able to receive the gate pass. The LOA does not assist our interested buyers in locating the property and please do not ask them to. We suggest you use MapQuest to locate the LOA's address at 26506 Gardiner Rd. Edwards, MO 65326 so you have maps to the starting point.
