MLS# 50129789 Property Type: Vacant Land Active
60 ACRE WOODED MICHIGAN PARCEL FOR SALE! - This property is located in Ontonagon Township, in Northeastern Ontonagon County - in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. - The development of Ontonagon County was caused by copper exploration. By the 1880’s the copper boom had gone bust, but vast stands of large white pine created new opportunities. Logging made the south end of the county develop. Over two decades millions of board feet of lumber were cut and shipped to big cities to the south. - The Property offered for sale was the historic site of “Camp Four” one of the logging camps used for housing loggers, and serving of their meals. Timber was harvested in the area and taken to by horse drawn drays, and then by rail to the southern markets. Old rail grades can be found near the parcel. - 40 Acres of the property is heavily forested by mature hemlock, which helps in the winter survival of white tail deer. This part of the parcel is enrolled in the Michigan CFA Program, and has been used by the current owners for hunting, trapping, and relaxation. - A variety of game and non-game wildlife live on this parcel - such as deer, grouse, and woodcock. In some of the low spots, standing water provides habitat for beaver. - In addition to the hemlock, there are a few areas well stocked with maple pole timber. The rest of the trees include hard and soft maple, and some black ash, lowland conifers, and cedar growing in the low wet areas. It appears that it has been decades since the area was logged. - The parcel has good legal access via a woodland private road, that needs maintenance. A high suspension vehicle is recommended. - For more information, contact us today!
