Property Description

SOLD – Drake (Grimes) Island is a 98-acre island on the Mississippi River. The location is in a direct path of the Illinois Rip Rap Conservation area and Missouri’s Clarence Cannon National Wildlife Refuge. This property is a very short boat ride straight west of the Rip Rap boat ramp. This 98 acres is a recreation paradise with a fantastic Location. The location creates excellent opportunities for great duck and goose hunting and the property is blessed with an abundance of deer and turkey not to mention fishing at it’s finest.

Years ago, the old cabin was shared by family and friends that created countless memories. Today the cabin is in bad repair, but it sets the stage for a new cabin to be built. The present owner has not been able to enjoy the property for some time and his wishes are to pass on the enjoyment to a new owner. The hunting rights are currently being leased to a well-known waterfowl enthusiast, but it is understood, in writing, that the lease will terminate upon sale of the farm. These islands rarely come up for sale so don’t hesitate because it won’t last long.
