9 acre Explosion Lake island for sale with 1+ mainland acres for private lake access and sheltered boat docking. Boat to the island in the summer and head right across the ice in the winter. Either way, the island is just across from a quiet, little channel for year round access. The eastern shore of the island opens up to big water lake views with sandy shoreline. (See maps)
Explosion Lake, part of Townsend's chain of lakes, offers boating to Reservoir Pond, Horn Lake & Little Horn Lake: 617 total acres of boatable Wisconsin Lakes. Each lake in the chain provides a different boating experience for fishing and fish species. There is also a balance of no-wake zones and hours for quiet boating and paddling, and full-rec zones and hours for water-skiing, tubing and jet-skiing.
Owned by one family for 47 years, this lake property may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an island on one of Oconto County’s best lake chains. Many island properties in Wisconsin do not include mainland shore ownership for unlicensed boat dockage, and usually launch from public boat launches. With this island property’s mainland lots you can have a dock, a garage, or even a waterfront home. Reserve the island for hunting, fishing, swimming, boating, or build. The island is zoned as single family housing.
The heavily wooded island is approximately 1300 feet long, or about a quarter mile, and is about 300 feet +/- wide. The island is mostly high ground with grades to the water ranging from steep to gradual. There are many places to clean a beach for swimming and boat docks. An established deer trail runs the length of the island; it makes for a nice trail for walking the island. The channel to the other lakes is just across from the island.
The platted channel properties consist of Lot 5 with .56 acres & 91’ feet of frontage and Outlot 2 with .61 acres – 144’ of frontage. Lot 5 is zoned single family and Outlot 2 is not considered buildable for structures as an Outlot. Electricity and natural gas are located along Dencur Lane, the public road that fronts Lot 5 and Outlot 2.
According to the DNR Wisconsin lakes website, Explosion Lake is a natural 43-acre lake located in Oconto County. It has a maximum depth of 10 feet. Fish species include Panfish, Largemouth Bass and Northern Pike. The lake's water clarity is very clear.
