Which membership is right for you?

We have three membership types: Off Grid Member, Bug Out Member or Bug Out Member with a Lease. Each membership type gives you access to the Co-op and gives you the opportunity to camp. The Off Grid Member or the Bug Out Member with a Lease has the opportunity to lease, or purchase their own piece of the Ozarks. This is not just going off-grid or bugging out on your own, the membership gives you access to so much more than just a piece of land. The value of the membership and the property will go up as the Co-op continues to improve the land.

Where will you go if calamity strikes?

The Ozark Co-op gives you a chance to experience off-grid Ozark living. It provides a bug out location if one of many potential catastrophic events actually happened. This will bring a peace of mind knowing you have a place to get away with your family group. It's a great investment to own land in The Ozarks.


Where does my Co-op Fee go?

Membership fees are how the Co-op functions and continually improves.

Maintaining roads, clearing fallen timbers, creating and trimming trails for hiking, horses, biking and ATVs are all continual tasks that your membership dues help cover. In addition to maintenance, the fees allow us to continually improve the Co-op property with pavilions, picnic areas, terrace gardens, joint power systems, and more.

The Co-op has a full-time Co-op Manager that provides education, help, support, and security for the members and the property.

One of the aspects of living in the rugged and forested mountains of the Ozarks is the land management. Forestry and Rock management is an ongoing task to prevent damage, fires, and loss of useful resources.

We also will be providing and maintaining a central lodge, providing overall security, consulting and assisting members, water management, etc.

Members also receive storefront access in the town of Melbourne, Arkansas and website storefronts to sell any goods they provide.
