I would call Pontiac Lake a working man’s lake.  Open to the public not just via the Pontiac recreation areabut thru several small independently owned marinas that seem down home.  No pretentious here onPontiac lake.  You are more apt to find a older fishing boat than a top of the line $50,000 wakeboarding boat on Pontiac Lake.                     QUAKE ON THE LAKEQuake on the Lake

Pontiac Lake real estate

is categorically smaller cottages.  No mega mansions here. You aren’t going to find Lexus or Mercedes in Pontiac Lake home driveways. The existing homes were built starting in about 1938 and have been added on to.  Or they have been torn down to be rebuilt.  Some have been built as late as the 1990’s.  There are small ranches from about 600 square ft to colonials as big as 2400 square feet.  There are also bungalows and Cape Cod homes on the lake.  Depending where the home you buy your kids could either go to Huron Valley Schools, or Waterford School System.

Pontiac Lake White Lake Oakland County General Info

There are several Marinas on the Lake which have boats to rent and picnic areas to enjoy the lake.  So you can launch your boat at these marinas and feel safe about getting your boat fixed if you break down.

What is nice about the lake is there are a few peninsulas and 17 islands to cruise around.  And with over 25%  natural it makes you feel up north.  In fact drive Gale Rd north of the lake and you will feel like you are up north.

There are several stores and even a Chinese Restaurant that are on M-59 & the lake within walking distance.  Unfortunately the Chinese Restaurant has no outdoor seating on the lake.

Pontiac Lake Recreation surrounds 1/2  the lake covering over 3745 acres. There is a nice beach with concession stand, playground, changing facilities, picnic area and shelters, hiking trails, public boat launch with plenty of parking.  It is a great place to enjoy Pontiac Lake if you don’t own any lakefront property.  DNR permit passes required.

Pontiac Lake’s Quake on the Lake

 In July Pontiac Lakehosts Quake on the lake.  Hydroplane races that run for two days.  Its a great day for the kids and you can even get up close to the races by boat.

I hoped all this Pontiac Lake data and Pontiac Lake information helped you in your search of Oakland County lakefront property.
