The Land & River
Chinquapin has some of the last remaining examples of
pre-Columbian untouched hardwood and pine bottoms as any
property still in private hands today.
Chinquapin consists of mature stands of timber, gorgeous hardwood bottoms along over five miles of the Ochlocknee River, several ponds, and pastoral fields.A large portion of the land consists of productive uplands. The planted pines, mainly loblolly, are over 25 years old. Stands of natural pine, located along expanses of rolling topography, surround open areas boasting beautiful vistas, fields, and food plots. There couldn't be a prettier spot for an equestrian program.
There are several ponds at Chinquapin, with a favorite area being that around Lake Rolf. Here, there are wide open visitas of the lake and fields, with giant old live oaks, draped in moss.
The Ochlocknee River
Humans have lived along the waters of the Ochlocknee River for at least 10,000 years. Native Americans first settled in the region and fished in its waters, foraged, and hunted in its fields, and later farmed the rich soils. Archaeological sites have been found in the river corridor indicating that it has been used by at least five Native American Cultures. Chinquapin has approximately 5.2± miles of frontage along the winding banks of the Ochlocknee River. Explore around the slews and you'll find many giant cypress surrounded by their tall knees.
The Main House at Chinquapin sits high on a bluff overlooking the Ochlocknee. Enjoy a peaceful canoe ride, or fly fishing steps, with access steps from the main grounds.
