Wolverine Lake in Oakland County Michigan

So what is Wolverine Lake in Oakland County Michigan like?  Wolverine Lake is located in the Village of Wolverine Lake MI.  It is a T-shaped lake.  I have heard some non-residents say it is a weedy lake.  However every resident on the lake that I have talked to love the lake.  I always love lakes that have “character”.  What I mean by character is that it is not a round lake.  You can’t see all of the lake.   There are bays or peninsulas to go around.  It gives the lake “character”

Wolverine Lake is 265 acre public all-sports lake.  The deepest spot on Wolverine Lake in Oakland County Michigan is 58ft.  The Village of Wolverine Lake is 1.69 square miles and is about 29 miles to Detroit or 25 miles to Metro Airport.  The population of the village as of 2010 is 4,312 with about 1740 households.  The children that live on the lake go to Walled Lake School District  Residents have access to the lake through community parks that dot the shoreline. Some of the subdivision parks have swimming beaches and boat launch facilities so residents can fully enjoy the lake. There is also a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) public access site located off Glengary Road.

Wolverine Lake was created in the 1920s through a private damming and inundation project funded by local dentist and developer Howard Stuart. Created from six small lakes, a critical early step in creating the lake involved the construction of the nearby dam, which began in 1919. There used to be six small lakes that are now are Wolverine Lake in Oakland County.  The dam allowed water levels to rise eight feet in the marsh surrounding Penny, Spring, Mayze, Pork Barrel, Bicking, Taylor, and Bradley Lakes, thus uniting them.

Residents’ concern for their lake and the desire to maintain control of it led to the formation of the Consolidated Subdivision of Wolverine Lake. Eight separate subdivision associations joined together in the early 1940s to form a more viable political force.  In 1954 they became Wolverine Village.  I hope this give you a little insight into what the lake is like.  I have helped clients buy and sell lake homes all over Oakland County.  I know the lakes well.  So give me a call on my cell phone today at (313) 310-9855.
