Torch Lake

Thanks to Mlive for this:



We love our Great Lakes. We’re surrounded by them.

But Michigan also is home to 11,000 inland lakes, which offer plenty of outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, kayaking and more.

Houghton Lake is Michigan’s largest inland lake, coming in at 20,044 acres.

It’s also one of the most shallow large lakes, dipping to only 20 feet deep. There are 30 miles of shoreline,” he said.

Where is Michigan’s Best Inland Lake?

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has even delved into the topic, selecting their Top 14 Inland Lakes in Michigan, as well offering maps of nearly 3,000 of those lakes.

For our list, we’re looking for your favorite inland lakes to BOAT, swim, fish, float, or paddle. The only caveats are that it has to be a lake that is accessible to the public (no private association lakes). And no Great Lakes.
