CLC Lands & Private Lakes, Inc.’s Buckeye Lake North property includes 1,200 feet of lake frontage and 29 acres of land.
Buckeye Lake is 100 acres, about 30 feet in depth, and has a sandy bottom. It’s perfect for wading and a dock, and is an excellent choice for families with small children.
The parcel’s shoreline is an easily walkable, quarter-mile in length. There are several bays and inlets of varying depth and ecosystem composition – the most striking of which is a low-area that (in the spring) is filled with tadpoles. It’s an ideal parcel for poking, prodding, wading, and exploring – as a kid or as an adult.
Anglers will catch northern pike, smallmouth bass, and pan fish.

The difference between an Upper Peninsula of Michigan summer at the lake and anywhere else is the benefit of isolation. The experience derived is made more powerful by the integrity of the environment. Fewer people inflict less damage. There’s more fish, cleaner water, and an occasional neighbor thrown in for fun and company. The potential of cottage life offers idyllic charm for the whole family; happy kids, family fun, wholesome activities. Envision the sound of nature, music around a campfire, late night star gazing, and the paradoxical feeling of freedom while being surrounded by friends.
