Ever dreamed of owning property in northern Michigan?

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says 41 parcels of land in northern Michigan, some on the water, are set to go up for auction soon.

The parcels range in size from one acre to 32 acres. They are all in Rogers Township in Presque Isle County and will be available by sealed-bid auction starting July 10.

Scott Goeman, manager of DNR Real Estate Services, said the properties are being offered to the public because they’re better suited for private ownership. Goeman says the properties "are difficult to manage, or provide limited outdoor recreation benefits to the public."

Sealed bids must be postmarked by midnight July 20, and will be opened Aug. 1.
