SORRY, THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN SOLD.
Riverside At The Niangua is truly one of the most exciting and unique projects you will ever see. This small, private area contains a very limited number of tracts with TRUE frontage on the wildly popular Niangua River in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks.
Not only is the Niangua River one of the most popular and beautiful rivers in the state, but this particular section of the Niangua is well known to be a proven area for some of the most amazing fishing you can find ANYWHERE. Trout and bass fishing in this section of the river is popular year after year. This section is also home to a number of small resorts and outfitters as this particular section is EXCELLENT for canoeing, kayaking, swimming and floating.
Bennett Springs State Park is just a few miles up the river from these tracts and the Park is regularly stocked with brown and rainbow trout, which are raised in the waters of the river. People come from all over the country to fish, float, kayak and canoe right here!
Properties with TRUE frontage on a named river are rare. Properties with TRUE frontage on the Niangua River, just down from Bennett Springs State Park are more than rare!
Could it get any better…….Yes! This particular portion of the Niangua River is what is referred to as a “White Ribbon Section” for trout fishing! The “White Ribbon” designation means that this section is managed specifically for catching rainbow and brown trout. There is only a 12 mile section along the entire Niangua River that is designated as a “White Ribbon Section” for trout fishing. This means more fishing and fun for you and your family!
For more information on the trout fishing click on the link below. It is a link to an article written by a man who was fishing for trout in the area adjacent to the NRO resort which is about one mile upriver from the property.
Toward the end of the above article, the author recommends staying in a cabin at “One-eyed Willie’s” campground, which is just across the river from this property (and down a few hundred feet).
By the way, the river is also well known for bass fishing as well as several other species. So if trout fishing isn’t your thing you can go after the bass, catfish or sunfish. Maybe fishing isn’t your thing at all. No worries! This section of the river is great for swimming, exploring, kayaking or just generally hanging out. How about a river side BBQ or campfire?
Tract 4 at Riverside At The Niangua is fully surveyed and is 10.07 acres in size.
In the aerial photo above we are looking northerly at the Niangua River with the property on the right side. This 10 acre tract features approximately 350 feet of direct frontage on the Niangua River along its northwest side, giving you plenty of space for shoring your canoes or kayaks, fishing for trout, bass and other fish or setting up a few beach chairs for the family and friends.
The photo above was taken directly on the property, looking across the river.
The aerial photo above was taken over the lower field looking across the river, you can see the cleared trail and site.
If you are interested in building some great “sweat equity” on this property, consider cleaning up some of the brush/limbs, which could increase the value dramatically. The brush/limbs will also give you an excellent source of free firewood for those river-side bonfires or for a nice campfire to cook your fish!
The sales price on this 10 acre riverfront tract is $89,500. With $500 down the monthly payments will be $965. This is about a 15 year payment schedule and an annual interest rate of 9 3/4%. With $1,500 down the interest rate drops to 7 3/4% and the payment drops to $855 a month. With $2,500 down the interest rate drops to 6 3/4% and the payment drops to $795 a month. With $5,000 down the interest rate drops to 5 3/4% and the payment drops to $725 a month. These payments are all based on about a 15 year payment schedule. Property taxes & maintenance fees (for the easement roads) willonly be about $280 a year and this is already included in the monthly payment amounts. There are no prepayment penalties, no hidden fees and no balloon payments.
PLEASE NOTE that you have a full 12 months to ADD to your down payment in order to reduce your interest rate and payment amount!
The aerial map above shows how the property is situated. The measurements/boundaries are approximate although they are believed to be accurate. We are having the tracts fully surveyed and this tract is 10 acres in size. It borders Marigold Drive along its southeast side (for about 65 feet) and it borders the Niangua River along its northwest side for about 350 feet. As you move toward the river you will get to the area where the property slopes down steeply as you get to the “Lower Field’. The lower field stays level until you get to the tree line where the property slopes down again, to the water.
There are a couple of road easements (shown on the map above) on the property. On the east side, near the county road, there is an easement which takes you onto the southeast side of the property without having to put in an approach off of the county road.
Also, there is a road easement that cuts through the meadow next to the property and goes onto and across this property. This easement in necessary to access this section of the property because there is a little pond which is basically the width of the east side of the property that you would otherwise have to cross!
The photo above shows the little pond on the southeast side of the property. The easement through the field takes you onto the property just past the pond. All of these aerial should be very close to the exact property lines and in the near future (1-2 months) we will have the survey maps in hand, which will be precise.
Finally, there is the easement road which goes down the hill (to the south) and then goes back north leading to and across the “Lower Field” on the property. This gives you good access with a truck or suv down to the “Lower Field” and ultimately to the river.
Although portions of this property were logged within the last few years there is still mature timber including white oak, red oak, hickory and cedar. Please note that the timber may not be cut or sold until the property has been paid for in full (exceptions can be made for creating trails/building sites).
In the aerial photo above we are looking toward the “Lower Field” from across the river.
There are multiple areas on the property that would be suitable for building, camping or hunting.
Check out the interactive map below!
Please refer to our interactive map above for additional property views and information. Please note that the boundary lines and measurements are approximate. This interactive map is BRAND NEW for us and if you have a chance we would love to have your feedback on it. Is it awesome? Is it great? Is it confusing? We would like to know!
Also, please note that on the interactive map it seems to work best if you click the “View Full Screen” option. Once you are in the “Full Screen” option you can select “Topo” to see a topographic map which does a good job of showing how the property is situated.
The topo map above shows how the land “lays”. Each line indicate an elevation change of 20 feet so when the lines are close the land is steep and when the lines are far apart the land is flat (or nearly flat). The land is basically flat in the middle and also in the “Lower Field”. The other parts of the land range from rolling to steep. Although you could potentially put a road/trail down the steep part into the lower field, it is much easier to use the easement road (white dotted line on the topo map) which goes down the hill to the south, and then curves back to (and across) the property. These are private road easements for property owners only, not for the public.
This property is private and secluded with an amazing amount of wildlife. On the property you can expect to find whitetail deer as well as wild turkey. This property has a proven track record for both deer and turkey hunting. In the river you can expect to find trout, bass and many other types of fish. Although this tract is very private it is only about 15 miles from Lebanon, Missouri which is the largest regional city in the area.
In the video below we take a look at the tract and its surrounding area. This is a great video to watch first as it shows the property, the river and the nearby areas:
In our second video below, we explore the property with our drone. These are all winter videos, with no leaves on the trees. We will be happy to get you updated videos this summer if you purchase the property:

Finally, in the last video, we check out the drive to the property beginning on Highway 64 at Bennett Springs State Park:
Please click on the photos on the right side of the screen to enlarge them and to get a short description of each photo.
The map above shows the route to the property from Bennett Springs State Park.
Excellent location, about 1 1/2 hours to Springfield, Missouri and just a little farther to Branson, Missouri. Also only about half a day’s drive to Kansas City and even closer to St. Louis.
If you would like a nearby address for your G.P.S. you can enter: 30500 Marigold Drive, Lebanon, MO 65536. This address should get you very close to the property BUT please do print out the maps and directions from this listing as it can certainly be confusing on your first trip.
DIRECTIONS: From Lebanon, Missouri go west on Highway 64 for about 10 miles to Bennett Springs State Park. You will come down a long hill as you approach the Noangua River. At the bottom of the hill you will go right (north) onto Marigold Drive. If you cross the Niangua River while you are on Highway 64 then you west just a few hundred feet too far. Once on Marigold Drive, proceed northerly for about 6 1/2 miles until you get to the property on the left side (west side) of the road. While you are on Marigold Drive you will come across a couple of “Y’s” in the road. Just veer left at the “Y’s”. Printing the maps will help.
Once you get to the property feel free to walk all around and explore. Also, you can bring your four wheeler or side-by-side if you would like. If you are in a truck or an suv you can take the easement road down toward the “Lower Field” and toward the river. PLEASE NOTE that if it has been raining, the lower field will likely be very soft and you could easily sink in if you drive off of the easement road. In these conditions it would probably be best to park your truck on the easement road and just walk across the lower field to the river.
Please let us know when you plan to make a trip to the property as there is a gate across the start of the easement road. You will need the combo for the lock.
As these properties are high-quality investment grade tracts, they have similar Deed Assurances to some of our other upscale developments such as Fiery Fork Ridge and Timber Shoals Ranch. As Riverside At The Niangua is designed as an upscale river front community, there are a few simple Deed Assurances which have been designed to be minimally restrictive while still keeping your property value high.
Please click on the link below to see the Deed Assurances for Riverside At The Niangua. If you have any questions at all, please let us know.
The Deed Assurances include but are not limited to:
- No mobile homes or modular homes are allowed
- No portable buildings are allowed
- No commerical activity is allowed
- Camping is allowed for a maximum of 45 days in a 12 month period.
- Residences must be on a minimum 600 square foot concrete foundation and up to two residences are allowed on each tract.
- For building/camping purposes, there is a 100 foot setback from roadways and a 5 foot setback from side boundaries.
- Please click on either the link below or the link above to see all of the property covenants
Here is the link one more time:
Please do click on either of the links to fully familiarize yourself with the property covenants. If these Deed Assurances do not meet with your needs, then we would be happy to be on the lookout for a property which does fully fit your needs.
Also, please note that trees with a stump diameter of more than 8 inches may not be cut, sold or disturbed until the property has been paid for in full.
This 10 acre waterfront tract represents an excellent opportunity for building your own home or cabin as there are no building permits required in this area! You and your friends/family can build your own cabin without permits or inspections (minimum 600 square foot concrete foundation).
PLEASE NOTE that although you can build basically anywhere on this property (subject to the setbacks from the roadways) that the “Lower Field” is within the 100 year flood zone. If you were to build in this area you would need to elevate your structure to get it out of the flood zone which can add quite a bit to the cost of building. The upper area and the wooded hillside would be out of the 100 year flood zone and would be much more suitable building site options.
In the photo above we are standing on the “lower field” on the property.
You can actually build up to two residences on the property. The additional residence could be used as a rental to offset or completely pay for your mortgage payment. Monthly or weekly rentals with access to the river would be very popular.
In the aerial photo above we are looking over the area from down river.
Not only is this tract just a few miles from both Bennett Springs State Park, it is within about a mile of the Barclay Conservation area which gives you a large amount of additional land to use and enjoy (it is open to the public).
This large tract is not only versatile for all sorts of uses but it is in an incredible location for enjoying it all year round. This section of the Niangua River is easily one of the most popular sections of river in the entire state!

Do not wait on this one! It is VERY RARE to find a tract with direct river frontage of any kind in the Missouri Ozarks. It is EVEN MORE RARE to find a tract upon which you can fish for trout, as well as swim, float, kayak and camp!
Your family will love you and your friends, family and neighbors will be very jealous BUT with 10 acres and over 300 feet of river frontage you can invite them along for the weekend too…
