Upper Michigan 80-Acre Wooded Recreational Parcel For Sale! This secluded property is located in eastern Richmond Township, in south-central Marquette County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is located about mid-way between an unincorporated village called the Suomi Location, a Finnish settlement near Palmer. (The first Finns settled the area in 1893) and the City of Gwinn. There are many family events that take place during every season in the Gwinn area, from street dances, winter carnivals, and cookouts sponsored by volunteer organizations, and there is Downhill and X-County Skiing, and Golf about an hour drive away. Within a few miles drive from this property are historic Fish Stocking sites to the north-west. To the south is the Cataract Dam Falls, a 13-foot high, 10-foot wide falls, with a second lower falls, and the Cataract Basin. The marketable timber was recently harvested on this property, but it will be excellent for recreation, especially hunting! The property features plentiful Black bear, Whitetail deer, and Grouse. Thousands of acres of State of
Michigan land touch the western and southern borders of this parcel. The property is rolling, and there is a picturesque rocky ridge overlooking a pond, and the O'Neal Creek, a small creek runs along the south-western edge of the parcel. It is a tributary of the East Branch of the Escanaba River, which flows south-easterly into the Escanaba River. This river holds brook, brown and rainbow trout in abundance. The main stream is formed just south of the city of Gwinn where the East and Middle Branches of the river converge. From here south, the river not only entertains trout fishermen but is also popular with kayakers and canoeists. K.I. Sawyer International Airport is about a half-hour drive away. This property would be a great place for your Get-A-Way Cabin in U.P. North Country!
