RIVER RIDGE RETREAT
“A True Sportsman’s Paradise”
SCREVEN COUNTY, GA
This unique recreational property fronts along Ga. Hwy. 24 on the west and its eastern boundary is the Savannah River with approximately 3500 ft. frontage. Sylvania, Ga, the county seat, is approximately 18 miles northeast, Statesboro, 35 miles west and Savannah approximately 48 miles south. Plantation Airpark with a 5000 ft. paved runway is about 9 miles away and the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport is some 42 miles south.
The property was originally developed around 2007 as a commercial hunting operation for upland wing shooting, deer and turkey hunting is like no other in the area. The current owner is presently enjoying the property as a private estate. Two shelters, one with concrete flooring and lighting that originally housed skeet and trap operations are located near the lodge. A sporting clays range that was a part of the original layout and structures are still in place. The skeet/trap throwers and night lighting for shooting are available through former owner and can be bought separately. The unique rolling topography and bluffs associated with the Savannah River Basin adds an interesting dimension to recreational enjoyment of the property. The property hosts some 900 plus acres of pine upland with approximately 250 acres of hardwood type land along the river. Substantial timber value is on most of the uplands with portions very open to accommodate quail hunting. An all-weather road system with signage provides good access throughout property. Quality built improvements necessary for a first-class hunting and recreational property are listed and described below.
