Vilas, Lincoln County State Parcels For Sale
Some lands outside the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest are among the parcels the DNR has put up for sale.
In the last budget, the legislature said the state had to put up for sale at least 10,000 acres of state-owned property located outside the scope of state project boundaries.
The DNR's Steve Miller says this includes some property outside the Northern Highland land and some land in Lincoln county. He says you can find the listings on the DNR website...
"....all you have to do is go to the DNR website and type in the search function "land sales" and it will take you to the right webpage and there will be some narrative there to get to the auction site...."
The parcels range from five to 80 acres. Four of the five properties are forested while one parcel has been used for agriculture in the past. Miller says the sales will also resolve boundary and access issues for some properties.
