3 beautiful lakes in White Lake Township

Are you looking for a lake home in Oakland County?  Have you heard of any of the lakes in White Lake Township.  Here are three different lakes in the township.  They are fairly close together, but none of them are connected.  There is no chain of lakes in White Lake Township.  You really can’t get from any one lake in the township to another unless it is by kayaking and by portaging your kayak.  No way to take a speed boat or pontoon from one lake to another.

White Lake township has several large all sports lakes.  Three of them are:

Here is a quick video on Cedar Island Lake and information on it.

Cedar Island Lake is one of my personal favorites as I have spent time on it myself.  I have skied, swam, and boated on Cedar Island Lake many times.  I have quite a few friends on the lake.  What I like about the lake is that it is just not a round lake.  I am not one of those people that like to go round and round in a circle.  Cedar Island Lake has many different bays and canals which makes for a nice pontoon ride.

Bogie Lake is one of Oakland County’s nice electric motor lakes.  It is not a huge lake, but you normally do not see big non all sports lakes in the county.   You can see the lake on the east side of the Bogie Lake Road before you come to the round about near Long’s Farm.

Oxbow Lake is a big all sports lake that you can see off M-59.  It lies on the south side of M-59 just east of Teggerdine before you get to Walmart and Home Depot.  It is a private all sports lake that has an irregular shape.   There is also a reed area in the lake that gives a the lake a natural look.   Many people like the lake because it has a small rustic bar on the lake.  Not much docking, but a few boats can tie up there.   The lake homes on Oxbow lake range from little cottages to quite a few homes in the 2,500 to 4,000 square foot range.  I would call these normal subdivision homes with brick exteriors, 2 & 3 car garages, and walkout basements.

Whether you are looking for a lake house on a big all sports lake, or a home on a quiet non all sports lake White Lake Township has a lake for you.  I myself live in White Lake on all sports 540 acre White Lake.  I have grown to love the area and all it has to offer.  Yes, shopping is not like living in Livonia, Northville, or Plymouth.   But you become used to less stores around you.  (You don’t spend as much).  We have plenty of restaurants, banks, grocery stores, and even a near by hospital.  So you lack for nothing.

If I can help find you a lake home or help you sell your lake home give me a call.  You know I know the lakes, and I know about the lake life style as I live it.  Plus you know that my websites are the best for local lake information and where a lake home for sale will get the most attention.  Especially if you are going to list your lake home you will want it on my website.

Call or email me today about your lake move.
