Sundown Lake History

Sundown Lake was built as a recreational lake in the early 1970's. It is located in Appanoose County, only 7 miles southeast of Moravia, IA and just 1.5 hours southeast of Des Moines. The lake was privately owned and held until 2005. Secluded Land Company LLC purchased the lake in 2005 with the intention of making Lake Sundown one of the best private lakes in Iowa.

The Sundown Lake development is comprised of over 2400 acres of land that encompasses the lake, which is nearly 400 acres. The lake is entirely private, meaning that only owners and their guests have the authority to use the lake, keeping boat traffic light and the area clean and beautiful.

The development consists of 350 lots that include lake front, lake view, and large acreage lake access lots. Besides enjoying water sports and fantastic views, residents at the lake can take advantage of the wooded areas for hunting or larger lots that provide privacy for building.
