Country living, minutes from the city conveniences

Living at Diamond Creek is like having the best of both worlds. Live in a nature-esq setting, but still have access to modern city conveniences. Sipping coffee on your back deck in the morning, you could easily spot a deer or two. It’s the relaxing atmosphere you’ve been dreaming about.

Fishing habitat is plentiful at Smithville Lake.  More than 4,000 of the lake’s 7,190 water surface acres were left uncleared to create the aquatic habitat that should provide excellent fishing.  The Missouri Department of Conservation began stocking the lake in 1975 and continues to this day.  Species include largemouth bass, white bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, flathead catfish, walleye, white crappie and bluegill.
