22 Acre Wooded Upper Michigan Recreational Parcel for Sale. This property is located just west of the Village of Kenton in Duncan Township, in south-western Houghton County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. In the late 1800s, when forests covered the area, the Duluth, South Shore, and Atlantic Railroad reached Kenton. After that time much of the surrounding white pine forests were cut and shipped out by rail to all parts of the Country. After the logging heyday, the area became settled by farmers, and today it is a tourist, fishing and hunting destination. The property is wooded, and has year-round frontage on M-28. The southern border of the property adjoins part of the 980,000+ acre Ottawa National Forest. This National Forest is filled with scenic waterfalls, lakes, and rivers. The Kenton Ranger District of this Federal Forest is the largest and oldest (established in 1931), and is known for camping, lake-stream fishing, canoeing, hunting, hiking, and snowmobile activities, as well as Cross-country and downhill skiing. The East Branch of the Ontonagon River is across the Highway, a quarter-mile walk to the north. This section of the river is a Class 3 All Year Open Season River, which is classified as a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream. To the west of this parcel is the Shane Creek and the Jumbo River. Here you'll find Browns, Brookies, and spring Steelhead. Just a few miles south-west of the parcel is the Jumbo Falls, a very nice cascading waterfall, and a few more miles north-west of the parcel are the Onion Falls and the Lower Onion Falls, on the Onion Creek. The main East-West U.P. Snowmobile Trail No. 8, and the N-S trail No. 107 converge in the Village of Kenton, only a half-mile away. There's something for every outdoors person to enjoy in this area. Wildlife common in the area include Whitetail deer, Black bear, Moose, Gray wolf, Fisher, Pine marten, River otter, Bobcat, Mink, and Beaver. Birders will find Ruffed grouse, Woodcock, Canadian geese, Ducks, Osprey, Loons, and Wild turkey. Local Bald eagle sightings are the highest in the Midwest. There is a good driveway and clearing already constructed. You can build your year round home or camp here, or just use it for a spot to place your Travel Trailer while vacationing in the Upper Peninsula. If you seek a private, yet accessible 4-Season Get-A-Way be sure to see this property.
