Mountainburg Property is approximately 360 beautiful acres nestled in the most remote part of the Arkansas Ozarks. Our mountain is at the top of the property and is one of the highest mountains in Izard County at an elevation of 1,100 feet. The northern border of the property is nestled against Arkansas Heritage Land (Devils Knob/Devils Backbone Natural Area). This allows members to have over a 3/4 mile of private entry to the 822 acres. Activities that members can experience on their chosen property include ATV riding, hiking, bike riding, horseback riding, cave explorations, hunting and enjoying nature in its purest form.
This area allows you to have a secure place to retreat to if there was ever a situation that you needed it. The natural mountain terrain provides increased security and visibility, especially with a community occupying the land. Below you will read about the many activities and opportunities Mountainburg Property will give you:
With your membership, you may use the designated campgrounds for short term stays, lease a 1 acre parcel or purchase a 3 acre parcel (click Membership Property Options button below for details). This personal parcel is where you can camp and/or build a cabin, grow a garden, build a water collection system and enjoy Mother Earth and nature. The cost of a parcel of land is based on the views and location. Parcels range between $1,500.00 per acre to $2,500.00 per acre. Prime lots are in high demand and are being purchased fast.
Gardening and Water Collection Systems
Average rain fall in the area is over 50 inches per year which gives you the opportunity to raise a garden and set up a water collection system as an individual. In Arkansas there are no legal restrictions for rain collection. There are community gardens and water collection systems set up being readied around the property for community use.
Hunting and Fishing Areas
Mountainburg Property is a community which means guns can be dangerous, however, we do allow bow hunting on the property in any designated community hunting areas. The adjoining Arkansas Heritage Land (Devils Knob/Devils Backbone Natural Area) is 822 acres open to traditional forms of hunting (check state regulations for area).
The Co-op is only a few minutes away from multiple access points on the White River with its assortment of trout (rainbow, brown and cutthroat), bass (small mouth, large mouth, rock and Kentucky), catfish (channel, blue and flathead), and sunfish that will satisfy any fisherman. Stream-running walleye are also found in the river. Fly-fishing is extremely popular on the river during low water periods.
Members also have exclusive access to the T Legacy Ranch White River Lyons Creek access. This access has availability limitations due to the activities that are held at the T Legacy Ranch so members need to call in advance.
Hiking, Cave Exploration, Horse Back Riding, ATV Riding, and River Fun.
There are caves to explore and many different trails for hiking, bike riding, horse back riding, and ATV riding on the Co-op to allow you to enjoy nature at its finest. The Arkansas Heritage Land (Devils Knob/Devils Backbone Natural Area) is exclusively for hiking and hunting traffic with multiple trails that bring you many great views of The Ozarks. The White River is just minutes away and in sight from the Co-op. Enjoy canoes and kayaks in the secluded river.
