Near: Luther

Access by private easement, just 660 feet off of paved County road. This ten-acre parcel is easy to access with rolling hills and great visibility for rifle hunting.

  • Two-track driveway offers access throughout
  • Great hunting; open area at back great for rifle
  • Dotted with tree cover throughout, see photos
  • Choice of beautiful building sites
  • Pull in and start camping same day
  • Leave your camper here year 'round without hassle

Measures approximately 660 feet East/West, by 660 feet North/South.

In my opinion this is the perfect shape for a ten-acre parcel-- square, instead of long and skinny. Think about it-- when you stand in the center of a the typical long ten-acre parcel, it's only 165 feet to the line on either side. With a square parcel, it's 330 feet from the center to every side. It's the same amount of land, but it feels bigger.

When you look at the aerial photo on the Plat for this parcel, it looks completely bare of trees. This couldn't be further from the truth. There's lots of open space, but also plenty of scattered trees. More than enough to give the wildlife a sense of security, while still offering you a good view through your rifle scope.

You'll find many ideal spots to build or set up camp.

All the corners are flagged with steel posts, painted bright orange. The corners are not professionally surveyed, but are reasonably accurate.

Tips on Finding This Land

This parcel is one of eight ten-acre parcels which together once made up an eighty-acre tract. My signs for Parcels P1 and P2 are easily seen from the paved road.

To find the others, you'll have to drive down the private easement. Be sure to print a copy of the Plat. The aerial photo and dimensions will help you find the corners for each parcel.

About this Location

Lake County has a higher percentage of public lands-- State and National Forest, than any other County in Michigan's lower peninsula. The eastern side of the County (where this land is) is hilly and, in my opinion, the prettiest part of the County.

This property is located:

  • About 4 miles southeast of Luther
  • Groceries, and 2 bars are less than ten minutes away
  • 5 Miles to Hwy M-131 (Leroy / Luther exit)
  • 20 minutes to Reed City
  • 25 minutes from Cadillac
  • 1 hr, 15 mins from Grand Rapids
  • 3 hrs and 15 mins from Detroit area

Road Access

A paved County road (Old M-63) runs from Hwy M-131 to the access road to this property. Parcels P1, P2, and P3 are on the paved county road. The other parcels are accessed by a private deeded easement.

Utilities

Electric lines run along the paved County Road (Old M-63). Power has not been run to the back parcels, but a utility easement has been provided in case you ever want to run it back.

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. All this land is 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. A deer I photographed while on this land.

Hunting

Excellent hunting. I've seen tons of wildlife on this land. Deer, turkey. There are several water sources nearby, and plenty for them to eat. I got this deer's photo on the access road between Parcels P2 and P3.

Local Attractions

Fishing in a boat on Howe Lake
  • Howe Lake. Here's an unexpected bonus-- less than a mile to the east of this land is 40-acre Howe Lake. It doesn't have sandy beaches, but it does have a public boat launch. Looks like a father and son were out fishing the day I was there.
  • Services. This land is about three miles from Luther, as the crow flies. Since we're not crows, it's about four and a half by road. Considering it's such a small town, Luther has a lot going for it: Public park in Luther
    • Grocery store (liquor)
    • Hardware
    • Post Office
    • Public Library
    • Museum
    • Gift Shop
    • 3 Churches
    • 2 Bars / Restaurants
    • Elementary School
    • Public park
  • Public Park. The park has a playground, porta-johns, and a lake where you can fish and swim. The lake is made by a dam across the Little Manistee River, which runs through town.
  • Restaurants / Bars.
    • Loggers Landing. Full restaurant menu; daily specials. Dance floor and occasional entertainment. Full bar.
    • North End. Full bar, also serves sandwiches, subs, pizza, and various specials.
  • Canoeing. The Little Manistee river runs through Luther. The Pine River runs nearby. There are several canoe liveries in the area or, if you have your own canoe, many public access sites to the rivers.
  • Map of public lands in Lake County Trails. I'm going to show you something cool. Look at this tiny map to the right. I know it's hard to see-- if you want a better look, click on it and you'll get in in high-res. This is a map of Lake County showing National Forest in red, and Michigan State Forest in green. The white space is either private land, or public land not accessible by the public. Notice how little white there is on the map? The yellow dot with the red arrow pointing at it shows where this land is at.

If you're looking for a place where the hunting is great, you can leave a camper year 'round, build a cabin or tiny-house, and not have anyone hassle you-- yet you're only a ten minute drive away from a steak dinner and a cold beer-- this is the place.
