PRICE REDUCED! Upper Michigan Hunting Cabin on 80 Acre parcel completely surrounded by State Forest lands! What a great location for a private get-a-way retreat! This secluded property is located in Covington Township, in south-central Baraga County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The State of Michigan owns nearly four million acres of land in the Upper Peninsula, located in the Copper Country, Escanaba River, and Lake Superior State Forests. The property being offered for sale is surrounded by Copper Country State Forest Land. You will have access to hours of hunting, fishing, trapping, and nature viewing in every direction! Timber harvest management in these State Forest Lands provide improved game habitat. The State has also been developing guidelines to improve non-game habitat. Retention of snag and den trees, woody debris, special wildlife values, and species of concern have all been incorporated into their recent forest plans. Beyond the State Lands are thousands upon thousands of Corporate CFA parcels for walk-in access for additional hunting, fishing, and trapping. A tributary of the Murphy River meanders across the northern edge of the property. It travels just 2-3 miles northward into the southern shore of Vermilac Lake. Vermilac Lake (also called Worm on some maps) is a 622 Acre, 4-7' deep lake. It has clear water and does not experience winter kill of its fish. Here you will be able to fish for feisty Northern pike, as well as Black crappie, Bluegill, Brown bullhead, Golden shiner, Largemouth bass, Pumpkin seeds, Sunfish, and Yellow perch. Walleye have been planted in this lake by the DNR for many years, and Master Angler Entries have been pulled from these waters. Locals host a popular ice fishing derby on this lake each year. There are miles and miles of nearby forest roads that offer many opportunities for mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, and ungroomed ORVing and Snowmobiling. After a day of exploring you'll be able to return to a 640+ Square Foot Cabin that was completed about 15 years ago. A large open concept Living/Kitchen/Dining area is finished with pine plank floors and walls. An 8x18 first floor Bunk Room provides lots of sleeping space, and there is an 8x8 Upstairs Area that could provide more bunk space. A 6x6 3/4-Bath with a 50-gallon gravity fed tank over the toilet provides indoor services, along with an outdoor Privy. The Owners bring in drinking and cooking water. The building has electric and Lp gas lights, and is heated with a wood fueled Barrel Stove, and an Lp Gas Wall-Hung Heater. You'll appreciate the clever devices installed in the cabin - to raise and lower the upper level stairs, the custom entrance to pass firewood into the building, and the custom ice box for cooling food and beverages. Attached to the cabin is a 4x8 Open Porch off the Living Room, and a 7x10 Covered Porch off the Bunk Room. Included with the sale is a Fire Pit to relax around, and just down a path is a newer 12x12 Honeymoon Cabin perched over a ridge, which provides a wonderful forest view. This cabin is heated by a Jutul wood stove. Other buildings included are a 12x28 Storage/Workshop Building, and a 6x8 Generator/ Storage Shed with an attached covered 5x8 Wood Storage Area.
