    Couldn't he build his own driveway, just as the neighbor did?

    Me, not having a lot of river / creek experience; you're scaring me a little, walking freely into that river/creek like that, 'cause the water looks very cloudy &/or muddy....If you cannot see to the bottom, you cannot see where you're stepping! 😱😱 You gotta be careful of drop-offs, sink-holes, & even sudden Flooding as you're walking around in that river like that....So I'm gonna ask the "silly" question---Are there any gators / river monsters in there (along with the snakes you've already mentioned)?!? 😨😦

    I think you can still build something cheap so you can drive across and still allow the water have its way.

    I recently saw a piece of land just like that, a creek runs through, but it's not as nice as yours. I would make the best out of a small bridge:)

    Pros= you got water. Cons=it could flood, so build up on piling.

    The Supreme Court says that if it is navigable then you only own up to normal high water mark. All rivers etc that are deemed navigable are held in public trust. People can sit on the bank of the river, creek, etc not pass the normal high water mark.

    I truly hate people who think it's their right to "own" an entire waterway and attemot to keep others from using it. What makes you more special than the next human?

    Thats how you get a "GREAT DEAL" on land. Always look at zoning, ordinances and EPA garbage. We dont own land you have to have permission to do anything on the States property. I did like what one of the commenters said. You may have to have it able to get a fire truck in there. If not you may not be able to build a house on it if fire and police cant get in freely.

    My biggest concern with the river crossing access is: What will be acceptable to emergency vehicles, should their services be needed, particularly and Ambulance/EMS or Fire Truck? What must the Bridge be, to be deemed worthy to their eyes or policy, to cross it?

    you want to make it cheap? its going to take some hard work on your part!  you have trees which can be turned into logs. ,  strong rope,  strong wire, long cement bolts,  a few bags of  quick dried cement.
