Lake Michigan Parcel with 4370+/- Feet of Frontage and 86.54+/- Acres of Woodland for sale. This property is located in Fairbanks Township which is located on the beautiful Garden Peninsula, in the Upper Peninsula's Delta County. On Lake Michigan's western facing Sand Bay harbor of Big Bay de Noc, this property is central to some exciting year-round activities. Notably, it is just about a mile south of the 711-Acre Fayette Historic Townsite. This well preserved ghost town of a bustling iron smelting community is located on the same harbor and it has large cliffs, a visitor center, a picnic area, and 20 historic buildings which were built post Civil-War, between 1867 and 1891. The park offers approximately 5 miles of hiking trails, which are groomed in the winter for cross-country skiing. Scuba Diving is allowed in Snail Shell Harbor on certain times of the day. A boat launching site, located between the campground and picnic area, is available for pleasure and fishing boats. (The protected waters of Snail Shell Harbor are deep enough for larger yachts and pleasure craft.) Open daily, from May 14 to October 23 - On the second Saturday of August, the park is transformed back to its glory days with period displays, food and music at the annual Heritage Day. The water at the shore of this property is very gradually deepening, so it’s a great place to swim, or perhaps launch your kayak or canoe. Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume and the third-largest by surface area. The word Michigan originally referred to the lake itself, and is believed to come from the Ojibwa word Mishi Gami meaning Great Water. Its ninety-some thousand acres of water offer a fisherman's dream come true. Add to this an aggressive fish management program and you have some of the best fishing in the USA. Off the shore, in the deeper waters of the Big Bay De Noc you can fish for Salmon, Trout, Walleye, Northern pike, Perch. Smallmouth bass. (Smallmouth bass draw anglers to Ogontz, South River, the Sand Pit, Tylene's Bay, Kate's Bay and Garden Bay. Go to Fairport for salmon.) If you are interested in hunting, the property has lots of signs of deer and this area is known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks. About two miles to the east is additional walk-in access for hunting and trapping in thousands of acres of Lake Superior State Forest Lands. This is also a Paradise for Bird Watchers. Because many smaller birds won't cross bodies of water if they cannot see land on the other side, the chain of islands extending from Michigan's Garden Peninsula to Wisconsin's Door Peninsula allows birds to work their way south down the Peninsula, then island hop to Wisconsin - migrating up the peninsula in the spring, and down in the fall. This property has an easement for egress, ingress, and utility purposes, but the driveway from the County Road to the shoreline has not not been constructed. At this time you will want an Agent to help you with a walk-in tour of this property. Schedule your Visit Today.
