Rifle River Acreage
An outdoor paradise. If you enjoy the outdoors of northern Michigan, you're gonna like this one. Approximately 108.5 acres, mostly wooded, with nearly a half mile frontage on both sides of the Rifle River. Property also has frontage on Wells Creek which flows into the Rifle River on this property. Amazing place for water sports, swimming, fishing, kayaking, tubing, or just setting on the river bank watching the world glide past. Top notch fishing for trout, steelhead, salmon, and suckers in both the Rifle River and Wells Creek. Hunters will enjoy the good hunting for deer, turkey, small game and occasional bear that wander the forested areas.
Property is made up of 2 adjoining parcels. One parcel is 108 acres with the river and creek cutting thru the west half of the parcel. The river is accessible from both sides. The second parcel is a half-acre residential lot in Forest Lake Bluffs subdivision, on Buffalo Trail Rd. The residential lot comes with lake privileges for Forest Lake.
The 108 acre parcel is accessed from Buffalo Trail Rd on the west side of the river. From the east the property is accessed off the end of W. Main St Rd via a 1/8 mile easement. The easement entrance is gated, and there is electric on site. Nice camping spot, or possibly build a cabin or home.
There are some deer blinds in place, along with a well-developed trail system. Woods on the east side of property are mainly oak, poplar, and various pines. Couple open areas to develop food plots if you wish. Ridges are numerous on the east side, mainly running north to south. Higher drier woods on east side of ridge, bottom of ridge, nearer the river, the forest is thicker, with stands of pines, hemlocks, and cedars. There are some occasional wet spots down in the river bottoms.
Over on west side of the river near Buffalo Trail Rd, the property is more level along the road, then drops off as you get near the river. This is also where you'll find Wells Creek. There are plenty of gorgeous river and stream views to be had through the entire property. Lots of land to explore, whether by foot or kayak. Don't forget to bring along your fishing pole!!
