Cheap Land in Missouri – Level Ranch Lot in Missouri’s Land of Lakes
If big city stresses are wearing you down and you’re ready to slow life down a little bit — while keeping civilization within reach when you want and need it — then come to the convenient, northwest side of Truman Lake. It’s only about 90 minutes away from Kansas City, but firmly planted in a pastoral countryside prolificly dotted by lakes, ponds, and streams and frequented by a variety of wildlife, including deer and turkey.
PROPERTY: This 13.6 acre wedge-shaped piece of land has almost 1200 feet of direct frontage along to NE 731-P, a public gravel road, plus 1300 feet of frontage on NE 721-P that runs along the north boundary line and acts as more of a private road since it services this tract and only one other neighbor. The eastern boundary line runs right down the middle of a small pond. The tract is generally level, easily buildable, and power is available in the area. Build whatever you want, in fact, because there are NO RESTRICTIONS here! It’s moderately wooded with a small wet weather stream that runs through the center of the tract and feeds the lake on the other side of the road. The area overall is only lightly developed and, despite all these beautiful water features surrounding you, none of the acreage here lies in a floodplain, so you’ll stay high and dry while you enjoy all the peaceful and natural amenities you expect from an independent and countryside lifestyle.
LAND IN THIS AREA SELLS FAST AND OUR PRICE IS UNBEATABLE!
The charming town of Windsor is less than 10 minutes away and here you can load up on all your basic daily needs. You’ll find a country market here, Dollar General, fast food options like Sonic, a couple building supply stores, health care facility, post office, and a few good restaurants.
Accessible by boat at Windsor Crossing just 25 mintues away, the 55,600-plus acre Truman Lake offers 958 miles of coast line and has created a diverse wildlife area rich in the history of Osage Indians, explorers, fur trappers, traders and settlers. Truman Lake is a great location for fishing, even in the winter, as power from Truman Dam helps heat the water. It’s nationally known for its excellent crappie and bass fishing but boasts great fishing of walleye, hybrid bass and other species of fish. The reservoir is fed by four rivers and several small streams, creating a broad diversity for fishing.
Historic Clinton is Truman Lake’s gateway city to the west, and it lies less than half hour away from the property. It offers all the retail staples like a Walmart, Starbucks, and major fast food chains and supermarkets. You’ll also find the trailhead to the Katy Trail here, the longest developed rail-trail in the country. Whether you are a cyclist, walker, horse rider, nature lover, or history buff, the trail offers something for you. The park, built on the former corridor of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (MKT or “Katy”), is 225 miles long and runs from Clinton to St. Charles. You can also launch your boat into the very expansive Grand River arm of Truman Lake here, at the Sparrowfoot Boat Ramp just on the south side of town.
If Clinton is Truman Lake’s gateway city for all those adventurous souls that travel from the west and Kansas City, Warsaw serves that same role for all visitors coming from the east. It’s about 45 minutes to the southeast and hosts a Walmart, several other shops, bed-and-breakfasts, restaurants, parks, and marinas. Downtown Warsaw and the Drake Harbor Recreation Area Trails have been designated as “Great Places in Missouri” by the American Planning Association. Take a refreshing walk across the Joe Dice Swinging Suspension Bridge, which is on the National Historic Registry, or ride your bike on some of the state’s best and most scenic bicycle trails.
Of course, Truman Lake anchors several state parks, promising bountiful natural beauty and outdoor adventure. The most notable of which is the Harry S. Truman State Park. Clear waters, dramatic bluffs and vibrant summer and fall colors make Harry S Truman State Park an ideal place to vacation. Located on a peninsula, the park offers a marina, ample fishing and boating opportunities, and water that’s perfect for every kind of swimmer. Hiking trails, picnic areas and campsites dot the park’s open oak woodlands and provide a home for abundant wildlife. Other nearby (within 45 mins) natural lakeside offerings include:
- Berry Bend Public Use Area
- Brush Creek State Wildlife Area
- Brownington State Wildlife Area
- Cooper Creek Public Use Area
- Turkey Creek State Wildlife Area – home to numerous deer, turkey, squirrels, and raccoons. Hunting is allowed and there are opportunities for wildlife viewing.
- Weaubleau Creek State Wildlife Area
- Osage Bluff Public Use Area – excellent fishing location for crappie, largemouth bass and blue and flathead catfish

When you’re ready to experience the more cosmopolitan side of life, you can take the 90 minute drive to Kansas City. There’s much more than just baseball and barbeque here. With a population of about a half million folks, you’ll never have a shortage of things to do. When you’re ready to go out for the night, try the Cinema Under the Stars, or a live music venue, then cap it all off at one of several bars and breweries. Many people might be surprised to discover Kansas City is home to a vibrant casino industry too.
Make no mistake: KC loves their sports teams. The 2020 Super Bowl champion Chiefs call this city their home, as do baseball’s Royals. Kids will love the Worlds of Fun amusement park, featuring over 100 family rides, thrill rides, waterslides, shows, and attractions including seven world-class roller coasters. It’s also hosts the Midwest’s largest Halloween event in September and October. For more natural entertainment, try the Kansas City Zoo, 200 acres of adventure bustling with more than 1,700 animals.
If material trappings are what entice you, then allow your shopping bags to overflow as much as the city’s fountains. Boutique shops in Westport, brand name favorites at Legends Outlets and antique treasures in the West Bottoms are just a few of the city’s shopping hotspots.
Last but certainly not least, Kansas City has made its mark on food. Smoky barbecue. Local distilleries. Every aspect of the culinary and spirits scene possesses a uniquely KC twist that makes it something special. It’s a culture that embodies the city’s diverse influences, from international flavor and home-style cooking to unrivaled craft beer breweries.

WALKING THE PROPERTY LINES w/YOUR PHONE: We highly recommend a FREE app called BaseMap, which uses your phone’s GPS system to show you property boundary lines, and allow you to walk them in real-time.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
After opening this map, you may see even more information about the area by clicking on Map Legend, then MapRight Layers.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why our properties are priced below market value, and the answer is really simple: we choose to sell to you at wholesale prices. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and discounted rates, and we strongly believe in passing this discount on to our buyers.
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
