Upper Michigan Lake Superior Parcel on Point Abbaye - The Point Abbaye Peninsula is a 12.3-Mile-Long peninsula that juts out into Lake Superior. This body of land is located in central Baraga County. This boreal ecosystem is bounded by Keweenaw Bay on the west and Huron Bay on the east. Considered a very special place by the Ojibwa who fished, hunted, and camped here for generations, it remained mostly untouched until the late 1800S. The Hebard and Thurberg Lumber Company leased the peninsula in 1877 and began harvesting its old growth forests, and carrying the logs to the nearby sawmills at Pequaming. Today the thickly wooded second-growth forests are managed for production of pulpwood, and the shoreline is dotted with fine private homes and cottages, and vacant land parcels. The northern end of the Peninsula has Copper Country State Forest lands and the County of Baraga has a beautiful park located at the rugged, rocky tip. It takes about a half-hour drive over the twisty road to get there, but the view from the rugged sandstone shelf there is worth the drive. There are hiking trails, two outhouses, and a small campground for overnight camping. You might be able to see The Huron Island Light flashing from the rocky archipelago located about seven miles beyond the end of the peninsula. These islands are named the Huron Islands in honor of the Hurons who once lived in the area - and are a national wildlife area. The ancient Lake Superior sea beds have created some sheer bluffs with high overlooks on both sides of the peninsula, and each side has its own special features. There are stunning sunset views on the west side, clear-day views of the Keweenaw Peninsula to the north, and those views of the Huron Islands and Huron Mountains from the east side. Fishing for salmon, whitefish and lake trout abounds on either side. Another local passtime here is nature photography, and you'll have opportunities for that here year round. Whitetail deer, Black bear, Coyote, and Bald eagle sightings are common. There is walk-in access for hunting and trapping from the eastern and southern borders of this parcel, into thousands of acres of Corporate CFA Lands and Copper County State Forest Lands. The property being offered for sale has 421 Feet of high frontage about 30-Feet above the shoreline, on the Sunset Side of Point Abbaye. You can view Lake Freighters as they pass in the distance, and the evening brings gorgeous sunsets and during many nights the Northern Lights... put on a spectacular show. Just off the Point Abbaye Road on this lake side of the property is a level clearing, with a fire pit, and a small storage building. There is plenty of room to build a gazebo type structure, tent camp, or park your Recreational Vehicle here. On the opposite side of the road is most of the wooded property. It has some marshy habitat close to the road side, created by an artesian spring. There are many signs of deer here. Further into the property the elevation rises and becomes slightly rolling. There was a timber harvest of this parcel a few years back, but there is nice regeneration taking place, and it opened the property to reveal some very nice building site possibilities. If you're looking for an Upper Peninsula property that has both panoramic views of Lake Superior, and enough room to build a nice Home or Lodge, schedule your appointment to view this property soon.
