Offered for the first time in 65 years, this unique 50+/- acre setting is just outside of Sparta featuring two rustic cabins, multiple garden storage sheds, trail system, and numerous recreational opportunities.
The main cabin is 833+/-Sq.Ft. of simplicity and functionality with comfort: 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sand point well, holding tank, wood stove, electricity, and window a/c. The second cabin needs roof repair and is currently not used but far from a complete loss.
Named by the family, the “Silver Creek Wildlife Refuge” offers a great trail system, multiple permanent stands, and a consistent history of deer and turkey hunting. Access from both sides of County Hwy A, in combination with the trail system, create a unique advantage for ingress/egress. The flexibility affords all members of the family to enjoy their hunt whether it be a short walk, long walk, a two hour sit, or all-day marathon without interrupting another.
Additional recreational opportunities including trout fishing nearby Silver Creek and biking/hiking on the Elroy-Sparta or La Crosse River State Trails. A number of the local roads are also open to ATV/UTV traffic.
The timber composition is a great blend of white pine, red pine, oak, and maple of varying size, age, and density. Portions of the property offer early successional cover for browse and concealment while other regions afford views of towering White Pine and mature oak. The 50+/- acres was enrolled in MFL Closed as of 1998 with 50 year enrollment period.
