Sitka Lake is a beautiful 40-foot deep trout lake with clear water. The lake measures just under one-half mile from north to south, and the property has a total of 240 acres, which provides ample room for all of your recreational activities! Sitka Lake is designated as a Type A trout lake by the Michigan DNR and is stocked annually with brook trout. The property is located one-quarter mile east of Old Seney Road and about six miles south of Grand Marais. There are no utility services to this scenic wilderness lake. The forest cover is dominated by northern hardwood away from the lake with areas of softwood and more mixed conifer along the lake’s shore. The Sitka Lake property 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. In addition to owning your own lake in its entirety, this unique property allows for the development of one single-family structure with associated outbuildings, providing a unique private ownership experience. This property has a large pre-designated “Privacy Zone” that can be posted as private property, where you can build your version of the perfect wilderness getaway. The privacy zone includes approximately 2,000 feet of lake frontage and 70 acres on the northern and western shores of Sitka Lake ensuring your own private retreat on this large and productive body of water. The residual land will remain open to the public for foot traffic for those to enjoy passive recreational pursuits. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to own your own private lake and be a part of the Upper Peninsula’s historic conservation heritage!
