Recreational Lakefront Property 8.21 +/- Acres on Box Butte Reservoir, NE



Here is your chance to build the perfect getaway or permanent residence right on the lake!  Opportunities like this don’t come up every day, and this acreage won’t last long! Two of the five acreages in this area have already sold this year.

Perfectly located on the edge of Box Butte Reservoir, this property is unique with different elevation levels that offer many options for building. Explore the best views of the beautiful Nebraska sunrises and sunsets and imagine them reflecting off the reservoir. Electricity is easily accessible from power lines following River Road. Power has already been pulled into some of the other acreages, and access roads into the acreages have been approved by the county.

This property is only minutes from the new boat ramp, and there are access roads to the reservoir near the east and west sides of the property. The water’s edge is an easy walk a few yards from the property line and through the state land bordering the reservoir. Escape the crowds and noise of other lakes and reservoirs in this peaceful retreat.

Box Butte Reservoir provides endless opportunities for anglers of any skill level with its vast variety of fish, including northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, yellow perch, and channel cat. In fact, Box Butte is considered “one of Nebraska’s best kept secrets” by local fishermen.

Along with great fishing, the abundance of trees around the lake offers great protection for whitetail and mule deer, with elk cruising through the area at times as well. It is also close to Pine Ridge Recreation Area, which boasts excellent hunting. The lake and nearby river offer great outdoor activities, including boating, camping, and hiking.

Box Butte Reservoir State Recreation Area is located on the 1,600-acre Box Butte Reservoir on the Niobrara River, and the recreation area is managed by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity, as a place like this doesn’t come around every day! For more information, call Tommy Wiles today to take a look at this lake front property!
