Playfair Township is just south of the Town of Matheson and is within the boundary of the Municipality of Black River-Matheson.

Imagine having your hunt camp within about 400 feet from a pretty little lake that you can fish on.

The sellers have taken a transport trailer to the property and set it up as a hunting cabin (look at the pictures).
A new outhouse was constructed in the last 2 years.
The road to the property has been brushed out and improved so driving there will not scratch your truck.
Once you are in the property there are some ATV trails through the property and one trail takes you right to Mobbs Lake.

ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The contour map shows that about ¾ of the property is mostly level at about 300 meters above sea level.
There are a few areas of rocky outcroppings where you can scope around the property,
The westerly quarter of the property slopes down to about 290 meters above sea level towards the seasonal creek that flows into Mobbs lake.
So we have mostly good high dry land, some rocky outcroppings, some slope down to the creek and a few patch areas of maybe some wetland areas.
This all makes for the ideal moose habitat.
The property is well treed with a mix of hardwoods and softwoods as mentioned previously in the section marked TREES.
The owners have improved the access to the property by repairing the road and brushing the sides of the road so that you won’t scratch your truck.
They have also opened some new ATV trails throughout the property to make getting to Mobbs Lake easier and to hunt on.
They also brought in a large hunting trailer (see the pictures) and constructed a better outhouse.
MOBBS LAKE is only about 400 feet from the southwest corner of this property.
Mobbs Lake has a surface area of about 30 acres and we are told that there are NORTHERN PIKE in the lake and it averages about 10-14 feet deep.
