Oxbow Lake White Lake Township Michigan
Oxbow Lake in White Lake Township MI is a private lake. It is a good sized lake for any active water sport enthusiast coming in at about 270 acres. The northern section of the lake runs right close to M-59 and on the south side of the lake is Elizabeth Lake Rd. There are no homes along most of the M-59 side. Much of the lake is natural along M-59. There is a road on the northeast side of the lake that has some large properties with good frontage and lots over a half acre.
Oxbow Lake in White Lake Twp is part of the Huron River Chain. North of the Oxbow Lake is Tull Lake and Pontiac Lake. You can’t get by boat to either of those two lake or to Cedar Island Lake which is south of the lake. You can kayak or take a row boat up stream close to Tull Lake, but a bigger boat may have problems. There is what I would call a fisherman’s area on the lake where there is a natural vegetation area….you are not going to get skiers or wake boarders going through that area. That is where the swans and the ducks usually hang out at. There are four deep holes of 43′, 59′, 64′, an 72′. Much of the lake is over ten foot deep. Like all lakes there is some swampy lakefront and some sandy.
If you are a skier, wakeboarder you will like the lake because there is no DNR access on the lake. So you are not going to get additional boat traffic on the weekends. Only people on the lake will have a boat there. Sprader’s on the Lake is a local bar that is located on the south side of the lake.
None of Oxbow lakefront homes that have sold in the last year have been short sales. Listed below are all the lakefront homes that have been leased or sold. So far the lake prices have been low. But I expect any lake home that comes on the market will be higher priced because of the lack of White Lake Township lakefront homes.

Oxbow Lake front homes are just like so many Oakland County lakes. You still have the small 500 square foot cottages that were built in the 1920′s all the way up to 6200 square foot contemporary homes. There were several homes that were built in the 200′s. I’m sure over the coming years there will be other older homes that are torn down and rebuilt. So you have a mixed bag of homes on the lake. So if you are looking for a private lake or an all sports lake over 200 acres check out Oxbox Lake, White Lake Township Michigan.
In 2012 White Lake front home inventory was very low and I expect it be the same in 2013. I believe lake prices are going to go up slowly next year. So if you are a seller you will be able to sell your lakefront home. I am expecting a small inventory of Oxbow Lake homes in 2013 too.
