Lake Michigan Waterfront Property For Sale - This property is located on the beautiful Garden Peninsula in Michigan's Upper Peninsula - A finger of land reaching down into Lake Michigan toward Wisconsin s Door County Peninsula. The 21+ Acre parcel has 440-Feet of south facing Kregg Bay lake frontage, and was once part of the "The Rocky Beach Club", a fourteen owner, 450-Acre joint development venture. It s a great place to swim, or perhaps kayak or canoe along the shore line, and if the surf's up, it's great place to ride the waves. You can fish off the shore for Lake Michigan's Salmon, Trout, Walleye, and Pike. The area is known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks! Also, because many smaller birds won't cross bodies of water if they cannot see land on the other side, the chain of islands extending from Michigan's Garden Peninsula to Wisconsin's Door Peninsula, allows birds to work their way south down the Peninsula, then "island hop" to Wisconsin - making this a paradise for viewing the birds migrating up the peninsula in the spring, and down in the fall! The Portage Bay State Forest Campground, acquired by the Fayette State Park, is nearby, and is home to the Ninga Aki Hiking Trail. This pathway is a 2.25 mile Biking, Hiking Trail that loops along a little lake, where Michigan native wildflowers, plants and trees can be identified. There is electricity and telephone available at the road site. The road is a seasonal, and narrow, with low-clearance so there is a lot of privacy - the County keeps it up for the State in the Summer and property owners that live there do their own winter maintenance. Call today for you private tour of this U.P. Treasure! The Garden Peninsula got its name because the Native Americans who lived in the area would travel to the Peninsula in the summer to plant their "gardens" because of the rich soils and favorable growing conditions they found there. In the 1850's, French fishermen moved to the mainland and founded the settlements of Sac Bay and Fairport. These families have maintained this valuable industry on the Peninsula for generations. In the late 1860s because of the excellent harbor, timber, and raw materials needed for a smelting plant, the Jackson Iron Co. found a smelting plant site on the Peninsula. They named the site Fayette. After the plant closed the State of Michigan purchased and restored the "ghost" town, naming it the Fayette State Park. It attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year resulting in a growing tourism industry. Farming, commercial fishing, logging, and tourism are all part of the areas current economic backbone.
