The 118-mile long Menominee River begins as a union of the Brule River and the Michigamme River in northeastern Wisconsin near Iron Mountain, Michigan. This 13+ acre river front listing has about 800 feet of Brule River shoreline which ends exactly at the point where the Michigamme and Brule Rivers meet. A little-used, primitive canoe launch at this point of the property puts the paddler onto a calm pool of the two mixing rivers.
If you were to point your canoe downriver, the Menominee River meanders southeasterly before entering the waters of Green Bay. Point your canoe upriver for an easy paddle across the front of this property and explore gravel bars, deep water holes, shallow rapids and babbling riffles. Not a home is in site on the Michigan side of the river, and on all three rivers, the Brule, the Michigamme and the Menominee, much of the shore is publicly owned and undeveloped.
The Michigamme River is over sixty miles long flowing from the U.P.'s Lake Michigamme in Marquette County, through Dickinson County and Iron County to its confluence with the Brule River.
Beginning at Brule Lake, the Brule River is over fifty miles long and is regionally famous for both canoeing and fishing. Rainbow, Brook, and Brown Trout are common in the upper Brule with Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike found in abundance in the lower section of the river.
As a future retirement or vacation home location, you'd be hard pressed to find a better location in Wisconsin. Florence County is located in northeastern Wisconsin about an hour and a half northwest of Green Bay. Over fifty percent of the land in Florence County is publicly owned and undeveloped. Over 250 lakes offer fishing, swimming and boating. Over 160 miles of rivers offer paddling and fishing. There are miles of recreational trails for hiking, biking, ATVing, horseback riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
The nearby small town of Florence provides all the necessities for "up north" living. A historic downtown with quaint shops, hometown diners and Wisconsin supper clubs reminds one of the non-touristy northwoods we remember from childhood. With only about 2,300 permanent residents, Florence is proud of its small town inviting atmosphere and welcomes a summer population of "weekenders" that easily outnumber the people that call Florence their permanent home. Everyone comes together for winter fishing derbies and summer festivals, fairs and fireworks.
This completely undeveloped and fully wooded Brule River property offers end-of-the-road seclusion on a desirable waterway. It is amazing to walk land like this that in years past would have been lotted off into teeny tiny cottage sites. Practical aspects for future building of a home, cabin or cottage on the property include the quiet, maintained township road, electric and telephone.
If you’re looking for waterfront land in Wisconsin that is much more than a skinny lake or river lot, and want very low property taxes to be able to affordably hold the land until someday building, please call for complete property info today.
