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"! It was a quiet area and I could hear the fall breeze blowing thru the trees! Nice!
It's close to three boat ramps for the private use of the property owners as well as some interior stocked lakes - a fisherman's 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 also included the boat ramp and a deer hidden in the trees as we toured around. 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.
Anne Drive runs along the North and O'Brien Place, a culdesac, along the South. There's only a few other neighbors on O'Brien so even more privacy on the backside of this property! The graded roads had recently been mowed making for easy access!
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.
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.
Imagine your own special place to go to the lake once or twice a year, a place to dream about someday building a home and hitting your favorite fishing hole every morning. And in the mean time you don't have to pay to stay by the lake because you own it!
Property owners have the right to use all of the facilities! They includes 3 boat launches into Lake of the Ozarks, 3 interior stocked fishing lakes over 20 acres each, and an RV community use area that has a bathhouse with showers, 11 camping slips with hookups, water, picnic tables, grills, 2 playgrounds and a clean out station for RV’s. I think $140 a year for all of the amenities and roads being maintained is a heck of a deal!
There are restrictive covenants on this subdivision. A few highlights of these covenants includes, homes and modular homes are allowed but not manufactured homes, some units allow RV use up to 3 weeks at a time, there is a gun range here but no hunting on the property, horses are allowed on lots that are a minimum of 4 acres per lot which are rare lots to find, no pigs or chickens allowed. You can read all of the covenants online at the land owners website and I included a link to it under CCR's above.
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! Recently I saw 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!
It seldom deal in land here anymore as I prefer the desert region. But it's so nice to see one come back up for sale! Love the photos of the kid fishing - that's what it's all about! Enjoy! Char the Explorer

Benton County And Forbes Lake of the Ozarks Subdivision Photos
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.
This is a private gated community and you need to make arrangements with us prior to visiting to receive the required map and make arrangements to get a guest gate pass. We will need a few business days to mail you this map and arrange for the pass. You will need to check in at the land owners office and can only be there during office hours which are limited. So plan your trip ahead of time so you have enough time to view the property, visit the boat ramps, community use area, interior fishing lakes, deer and turkeys. This is a big place to see! The office is open limited hours so be sure and check the current hours when you visit.
The LOA does not assist our interested buyers in locating the property and please do not ask them to. You must be able to locate this property yourself. 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.
