Notes: MICHIGAN VACANT LAND PROPERTY FOR SALE! This 115.37+/- Acre parcel is located in Covington Township, north-east of the Village Covington, which is in south-western Baraga County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. 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 and by Finnish farmers in the late 1890s. 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. A few 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. A mile+ to the south is 622-Acre, 7-Foot Deep, Vermilac Lake. 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. About 3 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. Beautiful Tibbets Falls is just a short distance past this river crossing. (Where the Plains Road takes a sharp right turn, there is a post at this spot where a trail road leads to a parking area at the end of the road and the beginning of a trail to the Falls) 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 motorized and non-motorized fun year-round - Biking, Hiking,  Horseback riding, off-Roading, Cross-Country Skiing, and Snowmobiling! The property offered for sale has over a quarter-mile of frontage on both sides of a Class-A Highway, where power is available. (The Eastern Parcel has been Select Cut - Seller plans to carve out a 1-2 acre parcel at the entrance to the eastern property, which is used for logging equipment and a log landing.)
