This 150 acre property is located in McCowan Township.
AN UNORGANIZED TOWNSHIP in Northeastern Ontario about eight (8) kilometers or about five (5) miles northwest of the Town of Opasatika, Ontario.
The Town of Opasatika is midway between the larger towns of HEARST and KAPUSKASING along the HIGHWAY 11 Corridor.
These are some of the Pros of owning land in an UNORGANIZED TOWNSHIP
- zero building permits needed.
-no nosey government issues.
-build what you want, as big or as small as you want and build as many buildings as you want.
-do what u want when u want!
We definitely class this property as A REMOTE ACCESS PROPERTY!
The TWO BEST WAYS to get to this property are
BY SNOWMOBILE in the winter months
BY ARGO in the non-winter months.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING AN ARGO ON TRACKS (it’s the ultimate bush machine in our opinion).
PLEASE NOTE: YOU CANNOT DRIVE A TRUCK TO THIS PROPERTY AS THERE IS NO ROAD, ONLY A TRAIL along a road allowance!
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
You have your own small lake within the property.
The property is relatively flat throughout.
There may be a little bit of rolling type of terrain but is mostly flat.
The property comes with the surface rights and the mineral rights and all the trees are reserved to the Crown.
You are still allowed to harvest dead or dying trees for firewood and some personal use.
The property is well treed with trees that are quite tall.
The pictures that we show in this story are from 2015 and no one has been there to harvest any trees so all trees are now at least 6 years older and taller.
You could probably use the trees to make yourself a decent sized cabin to use as your hunting get-a-way.
ABOUT THE LAKE
The lake has a total area of just under 6 acres.
All the waters in this area flow north to the arctic circle.
We believe that this lake is a spring fed lake as there are no creeks flowing into the lake.
There is a creek on that flows out of the east side of the lake and then it flows north and eventually flows into 10 Mile Creek.
The west end of the lake has a weedy section (see the aerial of the lake) and this is where you will find the waterfowl like ducks and geese.
The moose also like to hang out in that section of the lake .
We are told that there are brook trout in the local creeks and it would stand to reason that there would also be brook trout in the small lake.
It appears that the lake has a good depth to it.
PRIME HUNTING LAND
TALK ABOUT a prime hunting property!
This is the type of property most hunters dream about owning.
It’s located in a remote place, surrounded on three sides by a few thousand acres of CROWN LAND.
It’s a little hard to get to BUT not too hard.
Just hard enough to keep other hunters away.
There is a small lake on the property and that attracts the animals.
Located in WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT UNIT (WMU) 24.
ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY
In the NON-WINTER months we strongly recommend that you use an ARGO ON TRACKS to get to the property.
It is really a short 4.7 kilometer ARGO ride to the property.
In winter, a snowmobile is the best way to the property.
The entire trail goes along unopened road allowances or through Crown Land so NO ONE CAN STOP YOU from getting to your property.
The pictures of the trail are from this past weekend (the weekend of June 04 and o5, 2022).
OFF THE GRID
Learn to harvest sunlight and wind to power your small cabin can be an exciting and rewarding experience!
Utilizing at least some off-grid living features at your small wilderness cabin can also add a few modern conveniences to your cabin.
Your off-grid power can come from one or more of the following sources:
Power generator (gasoline), Propane, Solar or Wind OR a combination of all 4.
CROWN LANDS NEARBY
