You will see a large church on the left side of the road, this is where you turn RIGHT onto Red Gate Drive which is a gravel road. Stay on Red Gate Drive for about 1/4 mile. When Red Gate Drive curves to the left, you will continue going STRAIGHT onto the easement road which serves the properties at Fiery Fork Ridge. PLEASE DO NOT continue on Red Gate Drive, as from this point on it is a private driveway.

What is the terrain on the property? Flat? Steep?
The Ozarks are known for varying terrain. The east side of the development is basically flat, as it is situated along a ridge. In general, the tracts slope down as you move to the west.
What does each property look like?
Each tract is different. Please refer to the pictures and video of any tract to see exactly how it looks.
What utilities are available?
Easements are in place for power and phone (although they are not currently within the development). As this property is outside of any city limits there are no water or sewer lines. Water would be by well or cistern and sewage disposal would be by septic tank, lagoon or outhouse.
What do buyers generally plan to do with their property?
Most buyers will use their property as a vacation or recreation destination and may plan to build at some point in the future. Some buyers never plan to build and only intend to use their property for camping, hunting and recreation.
Do I have to drill a well?
No, you are not required to drill a well. If you require a permanent water source you may use a cistern (storage tank) or dig your own well. Drilled wells are of course permitted but most buyers find they aren’t necessary until they decide to build a home or large cabin.
What are the septic restrictions?
You are permitted to install your own septic. Lagoons and outhouses are also permitted on parcels larger than 3 acres as long as no runoff leaves your property.
Is there a Property Owners Association?
Fiery Fork Ridge is currently managed by the developer. After a majority of the parcels are sold control may be turned over to the Fiery Fork Ridge Property Owners Association. A monthly fees of $15 cover care and maintenance of the roads, trails, lake and common areas within the development. This fee will not begin until 2019 (possibly 2020).

As you know, it is VERY hard to find acreage bordering public land (and it’s getting harder all of the time). Add to that the access to the Little Niangua River and these tracts will be something you will be proud to enjoy with your family and friends. High quality acreage has proven time and again to be a solid investment.
