River Hills Farm is 950 acres of beautiful pasture and wooded hills located along the banks of the Tennessee River in the “Strawberry Festival” famous town of Dayton in southeast Tennessee.  Almost 3 miles of shoreline of Chickamauga Lake makes this one of the largest and most attractive remaining privately-held, undeveloped, waterfront properties within 45 minutes of the Chattanooga, TN area.  Exceptional hay production, managed cattle, and some row-cropping are the current agricultural operations in the level acreage while large stands of older-growth hardwoods and scattered planted pine dominate the hillier portions where there are fantastic views of the Tennessee River Valley.  Given its diversity of habitat, whitetail deer & wild turkey hunting is exceptional, and duck hunting along the river’s potholes & sloughs can be very good.  And with access to the highly acclaimed largemouth bass waters of Chickamauga Lake around Dayton, TN, fishing is one of this property’s highlights.  Current annual revenue is generated from agricultural & hunting leases in addition to rental houses on the farm.  Bordered mostly by TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) or large timber company land.
