Secluded 160 Acres in Iron River 1118832
Iron River, Iron County, Michigan
SECLUDED UPPER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN 160+/- ACRE PARCEL! This property is located in the far southwestern corner of the northern rectangle of Bates Township in Iron County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The property is surrounded by Ottawa National Forest Lands - This National Forest offers access to a million-acres of wilderness forestlands for boating, camping, picnicking, fishing, hiking, hunting, kayaking, skiing and other outdoor activities! The area was occupied by Native Americans prior to the arrival of White settlers, who came to the area for farming, logging and iron mining in the late 1800s. Iron mining was big around the turn of the 20th century. More recently, forestry has overtaken mining, and service industries related to tourism are important. This is a prime destination for recreation, especially boating on its many lakes and snowmobiling on its network of trails that connect with other trails across the Upper Midwest. The township is traversed by the State Line Trail multi-use route that is a state-designated snowmobile trail in winter and primarily an off-road vehicle (ORV)/all-terrain vehicle (ATV) trail in other seasons. The Iron River to Crystal Falls Trail, section of the Iron Range Trails system, transects Bates Township along an old railroad corridor through bogs, lakes and forests and is a
popular route for snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). This trail can be accessed in the township at Lake Emily, where parking is available. The property offered for sale is surrounded by lakes and ponds of all sizes, as well as miles of streams. Perch Lake, two miles to the east of the property is the largest water body in the County, with 994 acres. This lake has good numbers of Walleyes, Northern pike, Largemouth bass and Perch. The Hanna Webb Lake a half-mile south of the property, is one of the Brook Trout "Better Fishing Waters" as designated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The property offered for sale has two creeks running through it - The Knave Creek and the Kidney Creek, which exits out of Lake St. Kathryn (Some maps say Kidney Lake). Lake St. Kathryn is known for Northern pike, Walleye, Bass and Perch fishing! These water bodies attract wildlife of all kinds! Wildlife species
found in the area include large mammals such as white-tailed deer, black bear, coyote, wolf, and bobcat, as well as small mammals such as squirrel, rabbit, chipmunk, raccoon, otter, beaver, skunk and fox. Seasonal and year-round bird species are seen in the area including songbirds, shore and water birds, and game birds. The most common trees in the northern rectangle are evergreen conifers-pine, balsam, fir, and spruce, with some northern hardwoods. For a tour of this remote recreational property contact us today!
