Purchasing DNR Managed Public Land
Dedicated State-owned lands managed by the Department can be requested for purchase by submitting a Land Transaction Application.
Refer to the document Land Exchanges and Sales Guide, A Guide to Property Transactions with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, for instructions and details.
Most sales, however, are offered only by means of public auction. Should lands not be sold at the public auction, parcels will be available after the close of the auction, for direct purchase at appraised value. Information on sealed bid auctions is at the Sale of Dedicated State-owned Land section of this web site. If you have questions, call 517-284-5962.
