It’s located approximately 88 miles from Columbia, 100 miles from Charleston and 70 miles from Hilton Head Island in the heart of the Savannah River Corridor plantation belt. With nearby plantations including Erwinton, Millbury, Duval, Elliott and Groton, the lodge is ideally located less than 5 miles from Cohen’s Bluff Landing and the Savannah River, which boasts excellent fishing and recreational opportunities.

  We are currently preparing the auction information for this property but are also offering it for private treaty sale before the auction. This property can be bought as a personal outdoor enthusiast dream or as a functional hunting lodge, equestrian trail riding and ecotourism business. The current owner is willing to discuss the sale of the businesses as well as assistance during the transfer of the business to a new owner. Please go to our website for all current information.

Since 1985, Lakeview Plantation has evolved into one of the most intensively managed hunting properties in the southeast region. Their broad-based habitat management program and unlimited supplemental feeding program are both designed to enhance all types of wildlife, which makes white-tailed deer, wild boar and quail hunting unique on this site

The accumulative harvest of 9,000 deer, 1,500 wild hogs, and thousands of quail since 1985.
