Land: There are 20 acres (m/l) of land with a variation of terrain being mostly flat to gently sloping land around Billy Creek. There are several nice locations on the property to construct an off-grid cabin. The land is completely covered with a nice stand of mature timber that is native to south-eastern Oklahoma inducing a diverse variety of oaks, sweet gum, hickory, eastern red cedar as well as some nice saw log size native shortleaf pine that could be sawed into lumber if desired. Billy Creek flows through the property for roughly 660 feet. The property adjoins the 1.5 million acre Ouachita National Forest on 2 sides. Wildlife is frequently seen in this area.

Very peaceful and secluded wilderness-type setting that would make a great recreational weekend getaway or even a full-time residence.
