Lansing, MI -(AmmoLand.com)- The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced it will offer surplus public land for sale by sealed-bid auction between May 10 and June 7, 2016.

The auction will feature 28 parcels located in counties mainly in central and northern Lower Michigan, including Cheboygan, Clare, Gladwin, Kalkaska, Marquette, Midland, Muskegon, Newaygo, Osceola, Roscommon and Wexford.

Properties range in size from less than an acre to 140 acres. These lands are isolated from other DNR-managed land, are difficult to manage and provide limited public recreation benefit. Several of the parcels are forested and have riverside or lake frontage and are better suited for private ownership. In particular, this auction will highlight two parcels with more than 180 foot of frontage on Burt Lake in Cheboygan County. In addition, several large acreage parcels are being offered in Clare, Midland and Osceola counties.

Information on the auction, including the minimum bid price, property descriptions and conditions of sale, is available at www.michigan.gov/landforsale. Property listings will not be available for bid until the May 10 auction start date. At that time, instructions for submitting a bid and printable bid forms will be provided at www.michigan.gov/landforsale. Sealed bids must be postmarked by midnight June 7 and will be opened June 21.

Additional properties remaining unsold from previous auctions also are listed for sale at the former minimum bid price at DNR Surplus Land to BUY NOW!

Printed property information may be requested from the DNR Real Estate Services Section, P.O. Box 30448, Lansing, MI 48909-7948. For general information about the sale of surplus, state-managed public land, contact Patricia Harlow at 517-284-5940.

The proceeds from the sale of these lands will help provide future outdoor recreation opportunities in keeping with the mission of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
