PRICE REDUCED! MOTIVATED SELLER! MICHIGAN 36-ACRE RECREATIONAL PARCEL FOR SALE - This property is located near the Village of Covington in the southwestern part of Baraga County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This is a Year-Round Recreational Area! 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, and the nearby Villages of Watton and Nestoria join together throughout the year to host a number of community activities. There are numerous cultural and entertainment events held at the Covington Multi-Purpose Building. One of these popular events is an annual July-Daylong Finnish Music Festival which features musicians playing Finnish inspired music, meals, and tours. The large pavilion provides outdoor activities in the summer, and it also has a skating/hockey rink in the winter. A ski hill with rope tow on the property is enjoyed by many people for skiing, sledding and snowboarding. A Historial Museum downtown has many interesting historical items about the area, and a beautiful 1900s Art-Deco /Finnish Style church that was designed by a Chicago Art Institute Professor, is also in this Village, and is open to the public. Less than a mile down the road from this parcel is Vermilac Lake, a 622-Acre lake, which offers clean water, a diverse fishery and peacefulness that 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. Walleye have been planted by the DNR 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. Just a few miles north, or south of the parcel is access to thousand of acres of Corporate CFA Land and Copper Country State Forest Lands for walk-in hunting, trapping, and additional river and stream fishing. 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 a few miles to the north is access to a section of the "North Country National Scenic Trail" also from this site, and few miles further up the road is access to a 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!
