Alexandria Area “Big Chip” Double Lot

Description

What a tremendous opportunity to own a sizeable double lot on a great fishing and recreational lake in the central part of the state! Chippewa Lake, which is more commonly referred to as “Big Chip”, is located just NW of Garfield in the Alexandria Lakes area which is approximately only a 2-hour drive up I-94 from the NW metro. This property is a combination of two lots being sold together and yielding just over 300 feet of shoreline and almost 3.5 acres. The lots are elevated in nature allowing for panoramic vista views of Big Chip Lake. The natural terrain of the slope to the lake allows for terracing and or a tram to access the water. It is also orientated facing the lake to the North allowing you to enjoy both the summer sunrise and sunset. These are the absolute last two lots on the dead-end asphalt road giving it the ultimate in privacy with zero vehicle traffic besides your own. Big Chip is a recreational development lake which means that yes, it has a development along its shores but it also has areas of lakeshore that aren’t developed. It is elongated in nature and fairly large in size with just under 1,200 total acres. It has an average depth of 24 feet a maximum depth of just under 100 feet and a fishing structure all over the place is putting it mildly. According to the 2016-2026 MN DNR Fisheries Management Plan for the lake, at the time of publication, the average clarity of Big Chip was just over 11 feet. Even though natural reproduction does occur, the primary management of the lake had been focused on sustaining the popular walleye fishery through stocking. Not a “walleye guy”? No worries. Big Chip also has other fish species including Largemouth Bass, Northern, Sunfish, Crappie, and Perch. This is an extremely rare opportunity! So, if you are looking for a lake lot to build your dream home or family cabin getaway on not only a lake that is a fantastic fishery but has good water quality, then give us a shout and we’d love to discuss this “Big Chip” lot in further detail!
