MICHIGAN SILVER RIVER RESERVE PARCEL FOR SALE! This 10-Acre parcel of recreational land can be found in the Silver River Reserve, in southern Houghton County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Silver River Reserve is located south of Alston, an unincorporated community. Just to the east of Houghton county is Baraga County where schools, churches, shopping, and a hospital are found. This rural village was originally named Laird, and had its own post office in 1887. When J.V. Alston became postmaster in April 1902, the community and post office were renamed for him. In the late 1940's, to early 1950's, a group of avid hunters formed the Silver River Reserve to promote access to outdoor opportunities for their members. Since that time sports men and women have enjoyed this remote, wooded area, with the Silver River running through it, for hiking, hunting, and all-season recreational opportunities. The area is renowned for hunting. This parcel is a quarter mile away from thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest Land and just 1.5 miles to the east is the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness. There is walk-in access to hunting, trapping, and fishing on these vast land holdings. Black bear, Bobcat, Coyote, Ruffed grouse, Whitetail deer, Rabbits and other woodland animals are available. Farce Creek, Humbug Creek, Gurgle Creek, Boulder Creek, Tradition Creek, and the Silver River, all tributaries of the Sturgeon River, flow through the Reserve. The Sturgeon is a cool water fishery, rated a Type 1 Fishing Stream. Atlantic salmon, Brook trout, Brown trout, Coho, Chinook and Pink salmon, Lake trout, Rainbow trout, and Splake are fish species of note. A good sized river, it flows about 100 miles from its source at Wagner Lake to its mouth at Portage Lake. There's also some good lake fishing available at nearby Prickett Lake. Besides fishing almost at your door step, you can jump on your snowmobile or ATV and access the Winona-Alston Multi-Use State Trail not far away!
