Property Description

CLC Lands & Private Lakes, Inc.’s Little Pike Lake property offers land on the private lake and also on a pond. And it turns out – the pond is nicer. There’s a bank overlooking this very appealing-looking body of water with a natural building site and a road that takes you there. A sentinel of red pines, partially on this property – partially on the State of Michigan’s property (which surrounds it) admits you to this 121-acre estate.

Little Pike Lake is a shallow, 40-acre lake that has two land owners with cottages on its southeast side. The 650 feet of frontage being offered here is on the southwest side. The DNR reports perch and northern pike present in the lake in a 2002 sampling.

Access to the property is seasonal, and the county road servicing it is well-traveled.

Little Pike Lake was part of the Duck Lake Fire of 2012 which burned 21,135 acres in Luce and Schoolcraft counties. It’s recovering beautifully. There is new growth everywhere among the remains of the forest here before it. The effect is regenerative, and peaceful.

In-Depth Look At Property

I’ve been in the woods for two days battling the vital and persistent class in the animal world known as Insecta. After arriving at Little Pike Lake and taking a quick look around – from inside my car – I’m feeling elated. The landscape’s open; I can breathe. There’s no hum of mosquitoes to distract from the beauty in front of me.

Here, at Little Pike Lake, I can see what’s in the distance – and it’s gorgeous.

This property offers land on the lake, but also on a pond. And it turns out – the pond is nicer. There’s a bank overlooking this very appealing-looking body of water with a natural building site and a road that takes you there. A sentinel of red pines, partially on this property – partially on the State of Michigan’s property (which surrounds it) admits you to a space so perfect it will fill you up.

This parcel was part of the Duck Lake fire of 2012 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_Lake_Fire) which burned 21,135 acres in Luce and Schoolcraft counties. It’s recovering beautifully. There is new growth everywhere among the remains of the forest here before it. The effect is regenerative, and peaceful, and safe. Of all the properties, I’ve seen and written about, this is one of my favorites.

Additionally, this parcel offers 650 feet of frontage on Little Pike Lake along with 120 acres of land.

In the immediate area, there is access to a Grouse Enhanced Management Site (GEM) trail (http://www.newberry-news.com/news/2015-08-19/Local_News/GEMS_Help_Connect_Local_Businesses_with_Hunters.html), the North Country Trail (https://northcountrytrail.org/), the Crisp Lighthouse (http://www.crisppointlighthouse.org/), the Two-Hearted River Recreational Area (http://www.explorem123.com/points-of-interest/two-hearted-river/), and dog sledding with Nature’s Kennel (http://www.natureskennel.com/).

There is also the closed Pike Lake Mini-Mall, an unexpected, humorous incongruity not often found in wilderness areas.
