A prime camp and recreational property holding 1,600' of easily accessible frontage along the Black River with attractive pine plantation and hardwood stands.


Location

The tract is situated near the confluence of the Independence River and the picturesque Black River, a large western Adirondack watershed that is a major source for Lake Ontario. The Black River Valley stretches from the Mohawk River to the south (at Utica) to the town of Watertown to the north, near Lake Ontario. Just to the east of the property begins a forested region which extends into the Adirondack Park. West of the valley sits the Tug Hill Plateau, another forested region that extends towards Lake Ontario before transitioning to agricultural land. The property offers a four-season getaway opportunity for those who enjoy fishing, rafting, snowmobiling and other outdoor activities.

Greig is a sparsely-populated town, located just east of Route 12. The town of Lowville is situated 11 miles to the north. Utica lies 47 miles to the south, while Syracuse is located 81 miles to the southwest. Albany, NY is less than three hours by car and New York City is a five-hour drive to the south.


Site Description

The property offers almost 1,600’ of frontage along the Black River, which originates in the foothills of the western Adirondacks. This river is well-known for whitewater rafting and kayaking adventures in the Black River Canyon region near the city of Watertown. Located near the confluence of the Black and Independence Rivers, the property’s river frontage consists mostly of slow-moving pools which are ideal for fishing, canoeing, and float trip excursions.

The forest occupies a well-drained, low plateau formed by a large alluvial deposit of sand and gravel tucked between lower-lying wetland areas to the north and east. Approaching the southwestern corner from the access road, the terrain is gentle along the entire river frontage, providing easy access to the water for recreational purposes and several potential sites for off-grid cabin development. To the north along the access road, the terrain remains gentle and well-drained across pine-covered forests for over 2,000’ before leaving the property’s boundary and encountering an open marsh ecosystem. This riverside ecosystem is associated with the Independence River watershed.
