Alexandria Area “Big Chip” Lake Lot

Description

Chippewa Lake, or 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 lot has approximately 155 feet of lakeshore, is 1.5 +/- acres, and is the second to the last lot on the dead-end asphalt road which gives a bit more privacy than most when it comes to vehicles driving by. The lot itself is elevated in its setting 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. 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 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!
