There are over 320 named lakes in Oakland County MI. Some are just really small ponds but the biggest one is about 1250 acres and lots of medium sized lakes. Whether you want to get a bottle of wine, cheese, and crackers or a cooler full of beer with chips, taking a leisurely boat ride on your pontoon is a great way to relax.
There are some people that love lakes but others in the family that think lake water is dirty. So wouldn’t be nice to enjoy a warm swim in your infinity pool while the lake water is still cold. You could be sitting there and watch the wildlife in the lake.
Can you imagine a nice swing or hammock here with a cold drink? Wouldn’t you like to wake up to that each day?
Or sitting with your kids watching the sun go down over the lake?
Waiting to build the bonfire on a summer night. Smores, marshmellows, and a light singing to end the night. That’s what Oakland County Lake living is like.
