USA -( The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced it will offer surplus public land for sale by sealed-bid auction between Dec. 6, 2016, and Jan. 10, 2017.

The auction will feature 58 parcels located in counties mainly in central/northern Lower Michigan and in the Upper Peninsula.

Those counties include Arenac, Baraga, Chippewa, Clare, Gladwin, Lake, Mackinac, Manistee, Midland, Newaygo, Ogemaw, Oscoda, Presque Isle, Roscommon and Wexford.

Properties range in size from less than an acre to 77 acres.

These lands are isolated from other DNR-managed public 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 addition, several large-acreage parcels are being offered in Baraga, Clare, Midland, Presque Isle, Roscommon and Wexford counties.

Information on the auction, including minimum bid price, property descriptions and conditions of sale, is available at

Property listings will not be available for bid until the auction start date Dec. 6. At that time, instructions for submitting a bid and printable bid forms will be provided at

Sealed bids must be postmarked by midnight Jan. 10 and will be opened Jan. 24.

Additional properties remaining unsold from previous auctions also are listed for sale at the former minimum bid price.
