Upper Michigan Vacant Land Property for Sale. This wooded property is located in Covington Township, north of the Village Covington, which is in south-western Baraga County. With the nearby Villages of Watton and Nestoria, this Upper Peninsula community holds numerous cultural and recreational events throughout the year, and is a Year-Round Outdoor Recreational Haven. The area was first settled by French-Canadian loggers around 1885. Finnish settlers started arriving in 1898, and farming became more prevalent, but logging continued to be an important occupation. Crop and dairy farming, and logging are still done in the area today. Covington is known for its Historical Museum, and for a beautiful 1900s Art-Deco/Finnish Style church that was designed by a Chicago Art Institute Professor, which is open to the public. About three+ miles from the property is the Covington Multi-Purpose Building - the large covered pavilion hosts many outdoor activities in the summer months. One of these popular events is an annual July-Daylong Finnish Music Festival which features musicians playing Finnish inspired music, meals, and tours. In the winter the pavilion is a skating/hockey rink. There's also a ski-hill with a tow-rope there, for skiing, sledding, and snowboarding. Bordered on three sides by State and Corporate CFA Land, there is access to thousands of acres of land for walk-in fishing, trapping, and hunting. The area is known for super hunting, with Black bear, Bobcat, Coyote, Raccoon, Red fox, Red squirrel, Ruffed grouse, Varying hare, and Whitetail deer sighted regularly. Just north of the property is access to the main North-South Multi-Use State Trail (No. 5) for motorized and non-motorized fun year-round - Biking, Hiking, Horseback riding, off-Roading, Cross-Country Skiing, and Snowmobiling. About four+ miles to the south-west is 622-Acre, 7-Foot Deep, Vermilac Lake. This diverse fishery and peacefulness will remind you of Canada. Anglers turn to this lake for its feisty Northern pike, as well as Black crappie, Bluegill, Brown bullhead, Golden shiner, Largemouth bass, Pumpkin seeds, Sunfish and Yellow perch. The Michigan DNR has planted Walleye in this lake 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. This parcel has year-round access and power available along the highway frontage. Old M-28, which passes through the parcel, has seasonal access. This could be an excellent property for your year round home or recreational getaway. Contact Us For Information About This Property Today.
