Lake homes for sale on Lake Oakland in Waterford MI

These homes are not for sale, but examples of the beautiful homes on the lake

Welcome to my lake website!  Lake Oakland is a public all sports lake that lies in both Waterford and Independence Township Michigan.  Lake Oakland is one of those special lakes that connects to another different lake.   It gives boat more to see and more water to enjoy than being on just one lake. There are very few chains of lakes in Southeastern Michigan.  I really wouldn’t call Lake Oakland and Woodhull Lake a chain of lakes.  It is just two lakes that are connected together.  You have to go under Sashabaw Rd to get from one lake to the other.

Lake Oakland is about 235 acres in size and is 60 feet deep.  The homes on the lake are on municipal water and sewer.  The children on the lake go to Clarkston or Waterford schools depending on where they live on the lake.   Some of the Lake Oakland waterfront properties sit up on the hillside above the lake, and some of the homes are level with the lake.

Lake homes prices are sometimes very hard for sellers to figure out. Getting the correct sales price for your lake home is different than a subdivision home because of the many different characteristics such as lake size, waterfront (sandy or mucky), and private or public lake to name a few of the factors determining price.
