Land Description

Michigan LOG Cabin Located ON 120+/- Wooded Acres - ON Private Camp Lake. This recreational parcel is located just South-East of Calderwood, an historic Logging Era location. It is found in Interior Township, in south eastern Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (South of Trout Creek). Calderwood was established in the 1880S by a group of Minnesota men who organized a lumbermill there. Calderwood Lumber Company had a band sawmill, a planer, edgers, and trimmers. As was the custom then, the Company owned its own "Short Line" - 14 miles railroad track, had its own electric light plant and commissary. It produced ash, basswood, birch, elm, hemlock, hard and soft maple, red oak, white pine, spruce, tamarack boards, lath from hemlock timbers, and small dimension stock. "Lumberjacks" performed the initial harvesting and transporting of trees to nearby mills. They lived in lumber camps, and usually lived in privative cabins, bunkhouses or tents. The Dicksons, a prominent family who owned a general store in nearby Watersmeet, were also loggers. They built a Logging Cabin on the north side of Camp Lake, which was later used as a hunting cabin. The remains of this cabin, along with some artifacts, are located on the property offered for sale. Completely Private - the parcel offered for sale is surrounded by The Ottawa National Forest - A national forest that covers 993,010 acres of land in the Upper Peninsula. The National Forest extends from the south shore of Lake Superior down to Wisconsin and the Nicolet National Forest and includes land in six U.P. counties. These lands offer a variety of hunting opportunities ranging from small game to large animals. Black Bear, Canada Goose, Duck and Mergansers, Ruffed Grouse, Whitetail deer, and Woodcock hunting opportunities exist here. There are more than 196 miles of hiking and backpacking trails, and a wide variety of equestrian opportunities. Over 90 miles of cross country ski trails are located throughout the National Forest. Downhill skiers will find hills only an hour away at Iron River, Ironwood, or the Porkies. The Upper Peninsula has an extensive groomed snowmobile trail network, exciting terrain, and an abundance of snow (Annual snow fall is generally between 100 and 250 inches). About 230 miles of trail are located in the Ottawa National Forest, and access to Trail No. 107 and Trail No. 3 are a few miles away. Just a mile+ to the west of the property is the a reservoir called the Bond Falls Flowage. This sprawling waterbody has a surface area of approximately 2,100 acres, and is about 40 feet deep. This water body has 20 miles of shoreline with many coves and more than 20 islands. The Flowage has two public access sites. Coolwater fish present include, but are not limited to, walleyes, northern pike, minnows, suckers, sunfishes, yellow perch, bullheads, and muskellunge. There have been eight State of Michigan Master Angler awards taken from Bond Falls Flowage from 1993-2006. Water leaving the reservoir become the Bond Falls, a scenic 50-Foot waterfall which tumbles over a thick belt of fractured rock, dividing it into numerous small cascades. The river waters continue northward to the shore of Lake Superior. Camp Lake has about.63 miles of shoreline, 60-Feet Deep at its deepest spot and is 20 acres. Largemouth bass, Bluegills, and some Perch inhabit the lake. The current Owners have built a quaint 24 x 30 Log Cabin, with an 8 x 20 covered porch, which overlooks the beautiful crystal clear lake.
