Description: Camp Butterfly – a 960 acre land holding in Ste. Genevieve County is being offered for sale at public auction for the first time in decades. This recreational paradise has been managed and enjoyed by the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois for over 40 years. The camp features 2 lakes, Butterfly Lake (50+ acres) and Rainbow Lake (40+ acres). These lakes are beautiful and virtually untouched. Both lakes are suitable for a variety of water sports and are also great fishing lakes. The Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois have added to the improvements over the years which include: cabins, commissary, shower houses, multiple camping areas, hiking trails, outbuildings, roads, and utilities. In addition to the lakes, there is several hundred acres of timber that offers trail riding, hunting, and seclusion. This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a farm of this caliber. Whether you are searching for a corporate retreat, private recreational area, home site, or commercial use, this one is worth a look. Final sales price is subject to seller’s confirmation. If you are unsure of how to pursue an auction property, feel free to give us a call today and we’d be happy to help!
