18189 US41 Champion, MI 49814
MICHIGAN RANCH STYLE HOME FOR SALE!! This home is centrally located between the Villages of Champion and Humboldt.. It is located in west-central Marquette County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Once a bustling iron mining center of over 2,000 residents in the late 1800's and early 1900's, today there are only about 250 residents in the area. The first settlers were English iron miners from Cornwall and French woodsmen from Canada, who took jobs at the new Champion Mine. A wave of immigrants, led by the Scandinavians, Germans, Italians, Irish, and Finns arrived by 1900 and quickly established Champion as a vital railroad, mining, logging, and farming center. This home is located in an area known for Year-Round recreational opportunities in every direction. Just a few miles to the west is Lake Michigamme, the second largest lake in the U.P. With almost 100 miles of shoreline, 27 islands and over 4,300 acres of water, it is one of the most popular fishing and boating destinations in the U.P. Canoes, kayaks, sailboats, fishing boats, pontoon boats, and personal watercraft are a common sight on the lake. This lake is known for its walleye, muskie, and northern pike, but the Michigan DNR has recently introduced lake trout, splake, brook trout, and rainbow trout into the lake. Van Riper State Park and Michigamme Shores Campground are on the shores of this lake. Other lakes and streams in every direction offer tremendous fishing opportunities any time of the year. The Peshekee river, which flows into Lake Michigamme just west of Champion, is a favorite of canoers and kayakers, and the Michigamme River, which flows out of Lake Michigamme to the south, is becoming a favorite canoe and kayak destination for many people.
