The community of Chassell is located on Pike Bay, an arm of Portage Lake.  The community is predominantly residential.  Most of the area is quite flat and is well suited for agricultural purposes, and remains a productive farming district today.  The soils and climate are especially well suited for strawberries, and most of the approximately 650 acres planted in Houghton County are located in Chassell.  The Copper Country Strawberry Festival takes place at Centennial Park every second weekend in July. Visit the Chassell Heritage Center, Centennial Park, Otter Lake, Pike Bay and Public Gardens of the Einerlei.

Sturgeon River Sloughs [Wilflife Viewing Area] - Closest Town: Chassell.  Michigan Department of Natural  Resources, (906) 353-6651.  From Chassell, drive south on US-41 about one mile  to the North Unit parking lot entrance on the left side of the  road. Drive another 6 miles south on US-41 and turn right on  Arnheim Road, then drive about 1 mile west to the South Unit  access road. There are 2 parking lots located along this road.  This site has two separate land management units; a North Unit, located just off US-41, and a South Unit, located 1 mile west of US-41 off of Arnheim Road. This site provides a wonderful look at the wetlands associated with the Portage and Sturgeon Rivers. An observation tower adjacent to the parking area gives visitors a panoramic view of this wildlife area. A 1.5-mile nature trail and boardwalk begins at the parking area.  This wildlife area is enhanced with earthen dikes that allow wildlife biologists to raise and lower water levels for the benefit of waterfowl, shorebirds, and other wetland wildlife. There are fields with food plots and grassy cover for foraging and nesting. In addition to the ducks and geese found here, it is common to see great blue herons, bald eagles, marsh hawks, sandhill cranes, and ospreys in and around this attractive wetland area. Beavers, muskrats, mink, black bears, and white-tailed deer also make their homes here and are best viewed at dawn and dusk.
