Iron County Area Insight

  • Danelle Dove
    Iron County contains some 42,000 acres of lakes, streams and rivers. Wow! This includes 314 lakes and some 900 miles of river to explore. Whether you enjoy a spring hike, a summer Kayak run, a fall color tour or a winter day ice fishing, the heart of Michigan's Upper Peninsula has you covered.

    The area boasts many options for property seekers. You'll find recreational land with trails and abundant wildlife; locations waiting for a dream cabin; or that perfect spot for a future retirement home on the water's edge. Seeking a remote lake-front destination beyond the power lines? There is so much to pick from whether it's quiet or community.

    Iron County encompasses the quaint town of Crystal Falls, "the friendly little town on the hill," and Iron River, home of the U.P. Rodeo, along with several other smaller outlying villages. With larger urban locations within a short drive, this area makes a wonderful place to live or vacation. It's a good place to call home!

    Iron County, MI
    I have lived and played in the Crystal Falls area almost my entire life. A short stint in both Lake Havasu, AZ and Steamboat Springs, CO helped me decide that the Iron County area was for me and my family! If you are looking for expansive shopping, then a larger and more populated area is where you need to be. If you like a quiet and slow pace, clean air, abundant wildlife, water and trees, this is the place to be.

    I like to have a variety of things to do outside and enjoy: downhill skiing, hunting, canoeing and kayaking, summer pontooning, and fishing. This is a great central location to enjoy the rest of what the upper peninsula has to offer as well. Sometimes I like to just sit on my deck, read a book or just think. Just yesterday I watched nine white tailed deer quietly poke around the forest behind my house.

    We take trips to Green Bay, Milwaukee, Chicago and Florida. I often try to imagine what it might be like to live in those places. While they certainly have their attributes, for day to day living, I like it right here!
