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

This lake is located in west-central Marquette County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This "All Sports Lake", is one of the largest Michigan lakes. The lake is over 70 feet deep, and covers 4,292 acres in Marquette and Baraga Counties. The lake is about 6 miles east to west, with an arm extending about 4 miles south. A dam separates the Michigamme river from the lake at the end of the southern arm. The Spurr river flows into the lake's west end and the Peshekee river flows into the lake in the north east. Van Riper State Park and Van Riper beach are located at the eastern shoreline of the main arm. The lake is speckled with 27 picturesque islands, lots of wind-swept bays, points, narrows, and rock beds to boat around. Boating, sailing, swimming, and water skiing are popular on Lake Michigamme, and it is a U.P. "Fishing Destination". Common fish include Brook and Lake trout, Smallmouth Bass, Muskies, Northern Pike, Walleye, Perch, Rock and Smallmouth Bass, and even Whitefish in the deeper parts. Hikers and Rock Hounds also explore the massive mineral outcroppings found about the lake. This area is also known for western Marquette County Snowmobiling and Cross-County Skiing opportunities - Snowmobile Trail 8 is minutes away. The Village of Michigamme borders on the west end of the lake, where you can find shopping for clothing, fine art, and local crafts - and there is dining, fuel and groceries available nearby. This area is a very popular destination for many generations of families and sports persons, and is rich in pioneering, logging, and mining history! Craig Lake State Park, Van Riper State Park and the McCormick Wilderness are minutes away for hiking, fishing, and views of moose. A "back portion" of the property is deeply wooded and slopes down toward the lake. This area may be ideal for a Cabin/Home construction site that would have lots of privacy from passing neighbors. Just down the slope a wooded drive leads to an opening, and a beautiful level shore side area that has a lawn and a sand and pebble beach. There is a view of Cardinal Point across the water - and spectacular Sunrises and Sunsets can be viewed from the shore of this property! Power is already in place, and about 35+/- feet from the water's edge is a Boat House that could be improved to create a Shelter. The water gradually deepens, providing a great place to wade, swim, and launch your fishing boats, canoes or kayaks. There are also nice swimming beaches at the Van Riper State Park on the eastern end of the lake, and at the Township-owned park on the west shore. Come and explore the North Shore of Lake Michigamme!

L'Anse, Baraga County, Michigan


MICHIGAN LAKE SUPERIOR WATERFRONT PARCEL FOR SALE - This parcel is located on the western "sunset view" side of Point Abbaye Peninsula, in north-central Baraga County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Point Abbaye Peninsula is a 12.3-mile-long peninsula that juts out into Lake Superior. This boreal ecosystem is bounded by the Keweenaw Bay on the west and the Huron Bay on the east. Considered a very special place by the Ojibwa who fished, hunted, and camped here for generations, it remained mostly untouched until the late 1800s. The Hebard and Thurberg Lumber Company leased the peninsula in 1877 and began harvesting its old growth forests, and carrying the logs to the nearby sawmills at Pequaming. Today the thickly wooded second-growth forests are managed for production of pulpwood, and the shoreline is dotted with fine private homes and cottages, and vacant land parcels. The northern end of the Peninsula has Copper Country State Forest lands and the County of Baraga has a beautiful park located at the rugged, rocky tip. It takes about a half-hour drive over the twisty road to get there, but the view from the rugged sandstone shelf there is worth the drive! There are hiking trails, two outhouses, and a small campground for overnight camping. You might be able to see The Huron Island Light flashing from the rocky freshwater archipelago located about seven miles beyond the end of the peninsula. These islands are named the Huron Islands in honor of the Hurons who once lived in the area - and are a national wildlife area. The ancient Lake Superior sea beds have created some sheer bluffs with high overlooks on both sides of the peninsula... And each side has its own special features. There are stunning sunset views on the west side, clear-day views of the Keweenaw Peninsula to the north, and those views of the Huron Islands and Huron Mountains from the east side. Lake Superior fishing for salmon, whitefish and lake trout abounds on either side! Another local pass time here is nature photography, and you'll have opportunities for that here year round! Whitetail deer, Black bear, Coyote, and Bald eagle sightings are common. There is "walk-in" access for hunting and trapping near by, into thousands of acres of Corporate CFA Lands and Copper County State Forest Lands. The peninsula creates two bays - the Keweenaw Bay, a larger bay on its western side and the Huron Bay, a narrower bay on its eastern side. The peninsula tempers the winds, creating these calmer, protected water bodies. Anglers do well trolling for Walleye, Perch, Steelhead, and Smallmouth bass on either side of Point Abbaye. The outer bays give good catches of Lake trout and Coaster browns, and Spring and Fall catches of Salmon are available. Pike are in the Huron Bay's southern end, and Spring-Fall Salmon are caught. The parcel has 335 Feet of Frontage, and there is electricity available at the road side. It can be purchased separately, or it can be purchased with two Waterfront Cabin/Home properties, and another vacant waterfront parcel located to the west of it. Both Cabins Have Excellent Vacation Rental History! Looking for an Up North Waterfront Parcel? Contact Us Today!
