This is a beautiful square shaped ten-acre parcel, in Missaukee County, Michigan.
Here's what's special:
- Square shaped parcel!
- Huge block of Manistee State Forest very nearby, more acres than I can count!
- Easy to drive in from the road
- Beautifully wooded; about 1/2 open
- Great hunting; open area great for rifle
- Choice of beautiful building sites
- Pull in and start camping same day
Measures approximately 660 feet East/West, by 665 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.
You'll find many ideal spots to build or set up camp. Park a camper out here year 'round if you want, there are no restrictions.
This land is beautiful, with gently rolling hills.
This Parcel is accessed by a private drive which fronts on W. Edmonds Road. Edmonds is a gravel county road, maintained by the county, and plowed in the winter. The private drive is shared by several other properties.
Electric lines run along W. Edmonds road. The parcels accessed by easement will naturally have further to run utilities, if ever wanted. The width of the easement allows for this.
For water and sewage-- hey, you're out in the countryside, so you'll have to put in your own well and septic. Except in obvious places, 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 most anywhere you like.
This land sits in the middle of thousands of acres of Public Land!

The hunting is excellent. I saw some deer while I was marking corners on this land, but nothing compared to tracks! You can see there are two water sources on the original 80-acre parcel, which draw deer in from the miles of adjacent State Forest.

I've personally been to these two places; I enjoyed the food at Hammer's, and both spots offered IPA beers. Very friendly.
Many other places to try!
- Hammer's Pub and Grub. Full restaurant menu; Full bar.
- Town Pub Saloon. Full bar, also serves burgers and other sandwiches.
- Lakes. Lake Missaukee is an all-sports lake covering 1,880 acres! It varies in depth between 5 and 27 feet. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish including Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Walleye and Yellow Perch.
In the Summers you can take the wife and kids camping, and have access to the lake, the parks, and the night life. In the Fall, you'll have your place to go hunting.
Pioneer township is not zoned. 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 ten minutes away from a steak dinner and a cold beer-- this is the place.
