Ranch Description

Upper Michigan Hunting Cabin on 240 Wooded Acres. This property is located in Thompson Township (Deer Management Unit 121), which is located in Schoolcraft County in Michigan's central Upper Peninsula. This 98,125 acre township is comprised of private, state and federal land. It has approximately 20 miles of shoreline along the northern edge of Lake Michigan and it borders Indian Lake, which is the fourth largest in the state. 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+ 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. This area had virgin forests and plenty of timber and became important in the Upper Peninsula's lumber boom. By 1881, the Delta Lumbing Company was operating a mill along the shores of Lake Michigan. The Village of Thompson, named after the mill Owner and President E.L. Thompson, was formed about this time. The first official census was taken in 1884. The township at large was recorded with 330 people and the Village was 207, for a total count of 537. By the early 1900S, the Township had 8 schools, a general store, township hall, 3 churches (Catholic, Swedish Lutheran and Methodist), a barber shop, boarding house, livery stable, a hotel, saloons and a hospital. There were 3 doctors and a midwife. Currently Thompson Township has a small commercial area along the Us-2 corridor, which includes two motels, a convenience/gas station store, a real estate office, church, and a variety store/lumber yard. The area is central to lots of year-round activities. You can camp or canoe in the summer, snowmobile or ice fish in the winter, or enjoy a fall color tour during the autumn. The Indian Lake State Park, the Manistique Light and Boardwalk, the Bishop Baraga Historical Site, the Schoolcraft County Historical Park, the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, the Seul Choix Point Lighthouse Park and Museum, The Thompson State Fishery (a state owned and operated fish hatchery), a golf course, and Michigan's largest spring, Big Spring "Kitch-pi", are not far away. To the southwest, along the western shore of the Garden Peninsula, is the 711-Acre Fayette Historic Townsite. If you are interested in hunting, the property has lots of "deer signs" and this area is known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks. If you prefer hunting off your private property, about two miles away is walk-in access for hunting and trapping in thousands of acres of Lake Superior State Forest Lands and Corporate CFA Lands. The buildings on the property being offered for sale consist of a 1,179 Square Foot One-Story Cabin with an 8x20 Covered Porch, a 20x24 Bunk House, a 30x40 Pole Building to store your vehicles and recreational items, and an 8x8 Storage Shed. There is an Lp gas stove, refrigerator, and hot water heater. A Home Comfort wood stove heats the cabin. Power is supplied by a Generator. In the yard you will find a 500-Gallon propane tank, and a nice 30x60 fenced Garden Area. Get your "Hunting Buddies" together and schedule your tour of this property soon.
