4 Active Lakes Oakland County

4 Active Lakes Oakland County

Are you looking for a lakefront home that provides you with the ability to meet new people and have a good time? Here are four local lakes that are all fantastic to do just that! White Lake, Duck Lake, Cass Lake, and Union Lake, are all great for meeting new people and having a great time! These lakes all either have sand bars, islands, or sallow spots which are great for parking your boat and mingling with your fellow lake neighbors! Meeting new people can be hard and sometimes awkward not only for your kids at a new school but for you and your partner as-well in a new home. Living on a lake can be a great way to make new lifelong friends. Especially when they have great locations within the lake to meet up and enjoy fun local events! This is a perfect way for you and your family. Some lakes have local restaurants/bars right on the water which can also be fun for a quick bite on those warm summer nights!

White lake is a lake I currently live on, and I have to say, it is a lot of fun! The White Lake Inn, is super convenient for a quick drink or meal (while still being able to stay on the water). There are 3 islands on this lake! Two of which are owned (on either ends of the lake) and then the third which is “sunken” It’s more like a sand bar, but it’s pretty rocky.  The Sunken Island is great for kids or those looking for a more relaxed and mild days’ adventure. While the Island on the north end of the lake is pretty wild at most times. This is where fun parties usually take place and I would say is more of an adult environment. While there are these great spots on the lake to gather people are always tying up to one another’s boats and throwing out the anchor in the deep spots!







Duck Lake is just around the corner from white lake and is another wonderful lake! Duck Lake has a good amount of different bays and shallow spots. Many people from both White Lake and Duck Lake will drop their boats in and out from either lake. There are both great to get together with friends and have a wonderful day on. Duck Lake has a great area set up for all the kids to feel like they are on a safari! Kayak troll through with your boat and try to find all the mysterious creatures hiding in the tall grass and trees! The kids will love it and you will love seeing their reactions to all the surprises hidden here.



Cass Lake is located in Oakland County, and is surrounded by Waterford, West Bloomfield, Orchard Lake, and Keego Harbor. This lake is very large, in fact it is THE largest lake in Oakland County! It sits at about 1280 acres… Having said so, I’m sure you’ll be able to meet and make some great friends here!  And being that it is so large you and the kids will be able to do all the fun water sports you love to do! When you’re not hitting the sand bar, or cruising around wake-boarding/skiing, you can troll for walleye where the lake hits about 123 feet deep! This lake offers it all, and you’ll be to make some great memories with some even greater friends!

Now onto Union Lake. This is a lake where the homes are a bit pricier than other neighboring lakes such as: Cooley Lake or Long Lake, which are right across the street. Union Lake is what I would consider more of an upper end lake. You are going to find homes that are taken care of, bigger, and newer. You won’t find many of the old cottages on the lake. I would say the average home is going to be over 1800 square foot on the lake. The frontage on these lake homes area anywhere from 45 feet to 3/4 of an acre.  You’ll have more space on land here and out on the water you’ll still get to socialize with new and or old friends, at one of the many shallow spots or It’s a Matter of Taste restaurant  located at the south west end of the lake just off of Union Lake Rd.! Park your boat and dine with friends and enjoy a delicious meal!

These Lakes are all unique and fitting for so many types of lake home buyers, but the one thing they all have in common is they share gathering spots for all waterfront home owners to enjoy!
