Close your eyes and picture a view of clear, cerulean waters…reminiscent of the Caribbean. But in the place of palm trees are the cedar, birch and aspen of Northern Michigan. Welcome to the picturesque shores of Walloon Lake.
Like many Northern Michigan towns, Walloon Lake has been a popular destination for summer visitors since the late 19th century. Most notably, Ernest Hemmingway spent his boyhood summers swimming in the crystal, clear waters that are as pristine now as they were 100 years ago.
“It’s the great Northern air. Absolutely the best trout fishing in the country. No exaggeration. Fine Country. Good color, good Northern atmosphere, absolute freedom.”
Nestled between Petoskey and Charlevoix, Walloon Lake is a fisherman’s paradise. Home to walleye, Northern pike, perch, rock and small mouth bass, and trout. The steep drop offs carved out by glaciers and cool spring fed waters provide an outstanding location for various outdoor recreational activities year round. As one of Michigan’s cleanest lakes, Walloon Lake is the perfect setting for swimming, water sports and fishing.
But the true beauty behind Walloon Lake is the view…or views. The odd shape of the lake guarantees that no two views are the same. Standing on your porch looking out on the water, you can rest assured that your view is different from your neighbors…which may be a great reason to go next door for a visit.
