This 69.83 acre parcel fronts on Old State Road, just 1/2 mile North of the entrance/exit to Hwy U.S. 10.
- Paved County Road, Plowed year 'round.
- Wooded throughout -- mostly hardwood, a pleasure to walk through.
- Easy access
- Electricity at road.
This parcel measures 100 ft on Old State Road, and runs back from the road 2,095.03 feet before it opens up into a much larger parcel. The strip of land running to the road was done to comply with a Surrey Township ordinance which would not allow access by easement alone. The easement granted in the description gives you easy access over the existing driveway.
The proximity of electricity to any dwelling you might build on this property will depend on the location of the dwelling-- if you build back far enough, you would do better to get your electric from the back side. The best way to visualize this is look at the plat.
It will make an ideal building site, and is also suitable for a mobile home, and for camping.
All the corners are surveyed. I've brightened up the stakes on the road with bright orange paint to make them easy to find.
At the top of this detail page you'll see GPS coordinates. If you have a GPS device or a smartphone, you can enter those coordinates, and your device will lead you straight to this parcel. Otherwise, look on the sidebar at the "Map to the Land" link, and you'll get an interactive map with a flag right on the property. This will be easy to find-- no more wondering if you're on the right property.

Electricity runs all down Old State Road. This is a no-brainer.
For water and sewage-- hey, you're out in the countryside. If you want these, you'll have to put in your own well and septic. This land is mostly high and dry with sandy/loamy soil. You'll have no problem with drainage, and can put a septic tank and drain field anywhere you like.
This parcel is full of all kinds of wildlife. There are several a few marshes here and there, you can spot them if you look at the aerial photo I've provided with the Plat link. Look at a larger map and you'll see there are also numerous lakes nearby. So the wildlife has plenty of water.
If you like to hunt, you can't beat this location. You're right by the highway, within a few miles of where several major highways come together. You can jump in the car and be here quickly, from almost anywhere in Michigan.
Clare county is the home of Jay's Sporting Goods, one of the premier hunting/fishing supply stores in northern Michigan. You'll be just ten minutes down the road.
