MICHIGAN RIVER PROPERTY FOR SALE! This 53+/- Acre parcel is located in Covington Township, north-east of the Village Covington, which is in south-western Baraga County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The property is made up of one parcel that has about 1,800 feet of Rock River frontage along the southern border, and Lateral Creek along the northern border - and a second parcel that has 2,700+/- feet of Rock River Frontage. The water in the Rock River flows out of the north eastern end of Vermilac Lake, a 622-Acre, 7-Foot Deep lake located about two miles away. 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 water in the Lateral Creek originates from Parent Lake. This is a fairly shallow (3-10 Foot Deep), 162-Acre lake where you can fish for Perch and Bullhead. Water leaves this lake at the south-western end of the lake, and becomes the Lateral Creek, flows through Beaver Lake, and then turns north westerly along the property on the way to join the Rock River. After traveling several miles, the water from the Rock River flows into the Sturgeon River that leads to Lake Superior. The nearby community of Covington 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. About 4+/- miles to the west, via the Section 16, and Plains Road, is access to thousands of acres of Copper Country State Forest Lands 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. Where the Kelsey Creek crosses the Plains Road is a great spot to launch a canoe or fishing boat and cast for some fine Trout or Bass There 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 ...
