Before you go further, you need to understand that THERE IS NO ROAD EITHER LEGAL OR PHYSICAL, INTO THIS PROPERTY.
Sometime in the distant past, someone divided up several small parcels of land, in Reynolds County, none of which had road access of any kind. Years later, a few of these parcels have been developed, but for the most part they are vacant. Large parts of the county are owned by the US Government (Mark Twain National Forest) and the Missouri Conservation Commission, so the neighborhood, if that is the term, is mostly made up of uninhabited forest. It’s about 12 miles southeast of Ellington, Missouri. Now a part of that land, Webb Creek Campsite B, is yours for a measley $39.56 per month.
Once you actually get to the property – you hike into it - it’s a 165-foot square on the south side of a small mountain, and it’s covered with big oak timber. The acreage is approximately .625-acres. It’s a great place for your solar collector, your tent, and all the peace and solitude you could ever ask for.
Besides having no road, there’s also no electricity, and there certainly isn’t any land-line phone, water, sewer or any of those things, but this is genuine Ozark Mountain land, and we’re selling our clear title to it. Just start making the monthly payments and we’ll give you a Warranty Deed to the property after only 6 months.
ABOVE: Here's one good spot to start the hike into the property. There are several routes you can take all between a quarter and a half mile from the road.
BELOW: The rest of these photos were taken actually standing on the property.
THERE IS NO ROAD ACCESSING THIS PARCEL. This property is located in an area of heavy woods amid a cluster of other small parcels, none of which have access roads.

Driving Directions to Locate Webb Creek Campsite B:
Getting to Webb Creek Campsites:
Many years ago, several areas of Reynolds County were divided into small parcels in some process that apparently did not consider access roads leading to the properties. (For a better idea of this, check out the Plat Book Page showing the relationship of these parcels.)
Since there is no road, the best way to access these campsite parcels is by following a path through several of these parcels, all of them unoccupied. If you’re wondering if this is trespassing, yes it is. It is also the only way all these other property owners have of accessing their own properties, so there’s not much of an issue. To find the property on foot, you’ll need some sort of GPS device (Your smart phone will do, if you can get service, but it's accuracy is less precise.) to show you the co-ordinates of the property.
Begin in Ellington, Missouri, then travel 4.9 miles south on Highway 21 to Highway HH. Turn left, or east onto Highway HH and follow it 7.4 miles to a large electrical transmission line. This is the place to start out on foot up the power-line. Use our Google Earth maps and follow the first rising ridge you come to and take that to the top of the ridge, it’s about a ½-mile walk to the property.
Don’t try to do this without GPS.
