Ranch Description

Price Reduced. Large Michigan Lake Pelissier Property For Sale. This 142.15-Acre wooded property has 3,000Feet of frontage on Lake Pelissier. The property is located in Sands Township, in Marquette County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Marquette County is the fourth largest county in Michigan with a total area of 3,425 square miles. The property is conveniently located just 5+/- miles south of Marquette, the largest city in the Upper Peninsula, which was named after the French Jesuit Priest, Father Jacques Marquette. This county is dotted with 1,900 inland lakes and ponds, and is crossed by more than 4,000 miles of rivers and streams that flow through forested landscapes. This County has outdoor recreational opportunities in every season. Marquette Mountain Ski Area is about a half mile to north-east. During the winter season you can ski every day and night of the week on over 144 acres of terrain, where there are vertical drops of 650 feet. There's also a back country ski zone for advanced skiers and boarders. There are Live Webcams at the mountain, so you can view weather conditions in the area throughout the year. Blueberry Ridge Pathway is about a mile to the south. This is a popular DNR managed cross-country trail that has 12 miles of regularly groomed ski and hiking trails. It has seven loops, with a 1.7 mile lighted loop. Some loops are groomed for diagonal and/or skate stride, and some are groomed for diagonal skiing. A large segment of Michigan's 4 million acres of State Forest lands (the Gwinn Management Unit) is just a mile+ to the south-east of the property. These forest lands provide habitat for wildlife, are managed for future timber harvests, and have beautiful outdoor recreational opportunities. About 2.5 miles from the property is the main North-South Multi-Use State Trail Number 8. The Hiawatha Trails Club helps take care of a 13.42 mile stretch between Gwinn and Marquette. If you like stream fishing, the steep and swift Carp River, a Brook Trout River, is about two miles to the north. The last 5 miles of this river drops over 600 feet and there are rapids, white water, and small falls on its way to Lake Superior's Marquette Bay. There's lots of publicly-owned shoreline along Marquette's shoreline, so surf-casting is available here. Muskies, Pike, Perch, and in season, Salmon and Lake trout are caught in the "Big Lake" waters. The varied rolling topography surrounding the property being offered for sale was created by the retreat of the last continental glaciers 8,000 to 9,000 years ago. There are some granite outcroppings, and views of the surrounding area and Lake Superior from the wooded dramatic elevations north of the property. Balsam fir, white cedar, and tamarack comprise the forested wetlands at the shore of the lake. Lake Pelissier is nestled between two small ranges of low mountains called the Ragged Hills to the west, and the Migisy Bluff to the east. It is a private 88.5-Acre lake, with a pulpy peat bottom that is 5-6 feet deep. It supports Perch and Waterfowl. There are some small tracts on the west side of the lake, and larger corporate land tracts around the rest of the shoreline. There are 22 watersheds (drainage basins) within Marquette County and the majority flow northward into Lake Superior. Pelissier Lake has four inlets that form a watershed that drains about 1.53 square miles into the lake. There is one outlet to the northwest of the lake that drains toward Little Lake Pelissier. This property may be one of the most private pieces of waterfront and timberland, that is close to a major city. Contact us for your private tour today.
