AuTrain River South RDP
This property contains over three-quarters of a mile of frontage on the Au Train river. The 240-acre parcel sits just off of Forest lake road, a fully paved and plowed county road, providing good year-round access. You’ll have a legally insurable access easement into this unique riverfront property. This parcel includes lands on both sides of the river. This stretch of the Au Train River is designated as a Type 4 trout stream and is stocked with brown trout annually by The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, providing great opportunities for fishing and recreation. In close proximity to M94 and M28, major towns like Munising and Marquette are within easy reach for all the amenities you could need.
This property is currently enrolled in Michigan’s Commercial Forest Act, and it has a conservation easement in place that is held by the State of Michigan. It is part of The Nature Conservancy’s Northern Great Lakes Forest Project. This property is one of a handful of parcels that was specifically set aside and designated for a limited development opportunity. This is your chance to be a part of the historic conservation project known as “The Big U.P. Deal”. The conservation easement encourages the sustainable use of forest resources, the protection of conservation values, and provides opportunities for public recreation in a manner consistent with forest management and recreation conservation. It allows for the development of one single-family structure with associated outbuildings, which provides a unique private ownership experience. This property has a large pre-designated “Privacy Zone” that can be posted as private property allowing you to build your version of the perfect river-front getaway. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to be a part of the Upper Peninsula’s historic conservation heritage!
