There are no big public lakes in Hartland Twp. There ae about 6 or 7 lakes clustered around the M-59 US-23 interchange. There is Long Lake, Handy Lake, Maxfield Lake, and Round Lake south of M-59 and east if 23. You can walk from one lake to the other they are so close. On the West side of US 23 is Bitten Lake, Wallace Lake, and Blaine Lake. Wallace Lake and Bitten Lake connect to each other.
None of the lakes in Harland have public DNR launch ramps. All of the lakes in Hartland Twp are private and most are under 150 acres in size. Long Lake is only a 146 acres in size. The next closest big all sports lakes are Woodland Lake in Brighton and Lake Chemung in Howell.
Bitten lake is a private non all sports lake. Many of the homes are what I call subdivision homes. There really are not any of the old lake cottages on the lake. It is an electric motor only lake lake. It is a small lake that is only about 30 acres in size. No public beach, no marina, no restaurant on the lake. Bitten Lake is spring fed and fed by Long & Maxfield Lake.
Blaine Lake looks like it was dropped in the middle of a field. The land around the lake very open. It is a private non all sports lake that is about 46 acres in size. It is a small round lake and most of the houses on the lake are the smaller older cottages. Some are being for year round homes now. It is west of old US-23. The homes are on well and septic systems.
Bullard Lake is a small private non all sports lake that is 47 acres in size. The deepest spot on the lake is about eight to ten feet deep. You can’t have more than an 8-10 horse power motor on the lake. I would call it more of a leisurely lake. You won’t have loud jet skis here. The children that live on the lake go to Hartland Schools. Most of the roads are paved roads.
Dunham Lake. I love the serenity of Dunham Lake. It is one of Livingston County’s most unique lakes. It is unique that most of the lake is surrounded by a green belt that is owned by the association. Only on the north end of the lake do the home owners own the property on the lake. One the south, west, and east sides the association owns the lake frontage. They have a green belt.
Dunham Lake is private non all sports lake. They do not even allow electric motors on the lake. It is only a hand powered / paddle lake. You will only see kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats on the lake. It is one the most rustic lakes in Southeast Michigan. Because of the green belt around the lake you really do not see any of the homes when you are down by the lake. It almost seems like you are up north it is so peaceful. The large mature trees in the green belt hide the houses. If you are looking for a pristine, clean lake and do not care about seeing the lake from your house then Dunham Lake may be for you. You just take a short walk through the trees to get to the lake.
Long Lake is Hartland’s largest all sports lake. It is a private lake. On the west side of the lake you will find subdivision style homes. What I mean by that is you will find brick ranches and colonials built during the years of1970’s to 1990’s.
On the north end and on the east side of the lake you will find older homes. Most like many of the Oakland County lakes that had small cottages built before the 1960’s. They have been turned into year round homes. Some have been added onto and remodeled. On the east side of the lake you will find some homes sit on lots that are bigger. You will find space and privacy between some of the homes. Some of the homes sit on lots that are long and deep. You cannot even see the lake from the road from in front of these homes on the east side of the lake.
Maxfield Lake is a private all sports lake that is about 90 acres in size. I do not know how deep the lake is. Maxfield Lake is close to Long Lake, Round Lake, and Handy Lake. You are not going to find big luxury estate style homes on the lake. Most of the homes are under 2000 square feet. Though there are a few that are about 3000 square feet. Many of them were built between the 1930’s – 1960’s. But many of them have been updated and remodeled. Of course there are homes that were between 2011 and the 1960’s. In fact one was built in the 2000’s.
Round Lake is a private all sports lake. On the east side of the lake there are small, older homes with lakefront lots between 35 and 70 feet. Some of the lots are as small as 50′ and some of the lake homes were built as early as 1940. The south side of the lake has nice, brick colonials and ranch homes with lakefront lots between 70 and 115 feet. The roads around the lake are paved.
Tyrone Lake is a private all sports lake that is 102 acres in size. If you are looking to be in a more rural area then Tyrone Lake may be for you. I hear the fishing is good on the lake. The deepest spot on the lake is 25 feet deep.
Wallace Lake connects to Bitten Lake via a weedy canal. Wallace Lake is a private non all sports lake that is about 20 to 30 acres in size. It is an electric motor only lake. The lake lies between old 23 and the new US 23
Whalen Lake is a private non all sports lake that is about 50 acres in size. The homes are on well and septic. Whalen Lake is a small private natural lake with gravel roads and woods around it. There is a Salem National Ev. Lutheran Church camp ground (22 acres) on the lake providing that up north feeling. High-speed boating and water skiing prohibited on the lake. (Also towing anybody behind the boat on a tube, wakeboard, and kneeboard is prohibited).
There are only 14 lakes in Hartland Township that I know of. Lake Walden is in a campground; Long Lake is Hartland’s largest lake at 146 acres. Tyrone Lake is the second largest lake at 102 acres. Dunham Lake is the third largest lake in Hartland at 100 acres. The rest of the lake are small.
