The seven lakesYou’ll find this property at 046˚ 31’ 01.14” N, 086˚ 03’ 41.5” W.
In the plat book see Sections 28, 27, 33 & 34, T48N, R14W.
134 acres of surface water would be an exceptionally large natural lake in the U.P. There are few of those, and most have long been subdivided. Here the surface water is scattered about the property, which significantly increases its diversity, beauty, and recreational appeal. All of these lakes have a hard sand bottom and are spring or stream fed.
Sec. 28/33. Gopher Lake. MUCC lake map shows 36’ depth, 14.3 acres of surface water, and an outlet. This is a private lake and the 1940’s deer camp is at the north end. Bass. There’s a hard sand bottom right at the dock in front of the camp, which you can see in some of the photos on this website. Large portions of this lake are at least 36’ deep.
Sec. 33. Spruce Lake. MUCC lake map shows 18’ deep*, with 9.1 acres of surface water, ringed with large white pine. This is a private lake.
Sec. 33. Plat shows Centerline Lakes, two small lakes, one a private, 8.0-acre lake wholly on the property with both an inlet and outlet; and a second smaller lake estimated at 6.0a partly on the property, for a total of 14 acres.
Sec. 33. Owl Lake. MUCC lake map shows 10’ depth, an island, and 24.4 acres of surface water. I see this as a duck lake that could be planted in wild rice. It has an island in the center and a large lake basin on either side. There is an old cabin on this lake on land leased from Forestland Group.
Sec. (29, 32), 33. Deerfoot Lake. The MUCC lake map shows 13’ depth and a large lake of 42.2 acres. Inlet and outlet. I marked large fish in this lake.
Sec. (27), 33. Casey Lake. MSU study shows 22 acres. This is a part of the Fox River, and is an excellent brook trout lake. We marked a section on the south end that was 11-12’ deep. Because of the amount of water coming into the lake, it appears that the oxygen levels are high enough to support the trout fishery through the winter.
