About Michigan

Michigan

Michigan is in the upper Midwest and the heart of the Great Lakes region. It has many attractions, famous landmarks, and scenic state and national parks and forests. In addition to the “great ones”, it has about 12,000 inland lakes, 38 deep-water ports, more miles of coastline than any state but Alaska, and more lighthouses than any other U.S. state. Its agriculture features tourist-friendly fare such as cherries, blueberries, peaches, apples, and wine. And its cities include a major metropolis, some university towns, and countless rustic villages. The state is geographically unique, being comprised of two major peninsulas, and it can be further divided into five distinct areas. They are the Upper Peninsula, (known to Michiganders as "The U.P."), Northern Michigan (Big Rapids and Northwards), Western Michigan (along the sandy coast of Lake Michigan), Central Michigan or "Mid-Michigan" and the Southeast or "Downstate".

The Lower Peninsula has the majority of the population (primarily in the south), while the Upper Peninsula, separated by Lake Michigan and a bit of Lake Huron, is mostly rural. Until 1957, the only way to drive from one to the other was to go all the way around Lake Michigan, or take your car onto a ferry. Michigan's economy was previously dominated by the auto industry, but has diversified somewhat as that and other traditional manufacturing industries have moved their facilities elsewhere, and it's beginning to attract more information technology, life sciences, and high-tech manufacturing jobs. Tourism is a growing segment of the economy, focusing in winter on activities in the snow, and in summer on the State's extensive beaches, lakes, and rivers. Hunting, fishing, and sailing are also popular outdoor activities

Trophy Hunting on the Menge Creek 1119584

Keweenaw Bay, Baraga County, Michigan


Michigan Large Wooded Parcel For Sale. This 800-Acre property is located in central Baraga County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This large tract offers over a mile of Menge Creek running through the entire parcel, and Leviture Creek running through the east side. This creek is known for its Brook trout. This property has an excellent road system throughout, and it is enrolled in the Michigan CFA Program, so it is available for "walk-in" access for hunting, trapping, and fishing, but in return you will only pay $1.30/Per acre in annual property taxes. The specific rate increases 5 cents every 5 years. The terrain offers some steep bluffs with some beautiful areas surrounding the creek and there is a level site just south of the north line of the property that could be removed from the CFA program for a cabin site. The property is adjacent to thousands of acres of Copper Country State Forest and additional Corporate CFA Lands. This area is known to be a habitat for migratory deer from both Baraga County and southern Houghton Counties. Over 5,000 acres of Menge Creek land owned by a large corporation, just north of the property being offered for sale, is part of a voluntary Deer Wintering Complex. The Wildlife Division of the Mdnr established a cooperative habitat management pilot project in deer wintering complexes. The goal is to improve long-term sustainability of conifer cover, increase retention of hemlock, and promote hemlock regeneration. 350-Acres in this deer wintering complex were scarified to expose bare mineral soil and promote hemlock regeneration. The result? Great whitetail hunting, as well as sightings of American marten, black bear and other woodland critters. Menge Creek travels north-eastward through landscapes that have a badlands character, with escarpment areas, ridge tops and ravine bottoms, and eventually empties into Lake Superior's L'Anse Bay. This property is only 2 1/2 miles away from the Villages of L'Anse and Baraga where you will find Lake Superior Marinas, and village amenities. There are unlimited Snowmobile and ATVing opportunities in the area, and just about two miles south of the property is the 28-Mile Baraga Plains Trail for some great ORV fun. For a super recreational get-a-way check this property out.

35.45 Acre Wooded Wonder M - 45 1119561

Bruce Crossing, Ontonagon County, Michigan


Michigan 34.45-Acre Ontonagon County Wooded Parcel For Sale.. - This property is located 9 miles north of historic Bruce Crossing, in Stannard Township, in Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In 1845 an overland mail route was established from Fort Howard in Green Bay, Wisconsin through Bruce Crossing, to Fort Williams at Copper Harbor. It became a nationally designated wagon route (known as the Military Road). Road work began in 1863, and a small relay station built in 1868 became the birth of Bruce Crossing. Logging companies and camps followed construction of the road. In the 1880S The Diamond Match Company obtained timber rights in the region and built some of the earliest camps. Railroads reached the area by the late 1880S. Soon sawmills along the nearby river banks, the Donald Bruce hotel, store, and saloon created the community which was officially named Bruces Crossing after the first postmaster, when its post office opened in 1888. It was shortened to Bruce Crossing in 1891. Farming and Logging has coexisted in the area - Men working in the logging camps harvested timber during the winter months, and returned to their farms in the summer. Agriculture and lumber industries continued to dominate the communities, with tourism now the mainstay. Five miles to the north-west if the Village of Rockland. The property offered for sale has a tributary of the Sandstone Creek touching the northern border of the property. It flows into the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River a good Trout and Salmon angling river, and thence into Lake Superior. Lake Superior in this area has wide sandy beaches for boating, swimming and fishing. To the west of the property is access direct access to Ottawa National Forest Lands. Whitetail deer, Black bear, and Grouse hunting is excellent in this area. Just a few miles to the north is the Military Hills (Bridge) Roadside Park. There is a boat ramp and a launch area for canoes and kayaks. This park has a plaque on a stone pillar: "In 1864 Abraham Lincoln commissioned this road extending from Green Bay to Fort Wilkins as a military highway to secure copper supplies for the union forces." Access to the North Country Trail is less than two miles to the South. The North Country Trail is the longest National Scenic Trail in the United States - It spans over 4,600 miles and 7 states - Almost 1500 miles of this national trail are located in the state of Michigan. Part of the trail to the nearby O-Kun-de-Kun waterfalls is part of the North Country trail. The wildest of several scenic falls in Ontonagon County, and one of the few plunge falls around Lake Superior - You can even go behind the falls if you are sure footed. The trail head to the falls is located on the east side of the highway. Before you reach the main falls is a smaller ten-foot plunge. A short distance downstream is the main falls.The trail crosses a suspension bridge below the main falls. If you are seeking a wooded property near year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, check this one out.
