What is great about Metro Detroit is that within an hour of downtown Detroit there are hundreds of recreational lakes for any life style. There are Oakland County all sports lakes for the active water skier, knee boarder, tuber,or wake boarder.
There are quiet Oakland County lakes that don't allow motorized boats. There private lakes that limit the amount of boats that are on the lakes.
There are over 320 named lakes in Oakland County MI. Some are really small ponds but the biggest one is about 1250 acres. Whether you want to get a bottle of wine, cheese, and crackers or a cooler full of beer with chips taking a leisurely boat ride on you pontoon is a great way to relax.
There are some people that love lakes but others in the family that think lake water is dirty. So wouldn't be nice to enjoy a warm swim in your infinity pool while the lake water is still cold. You could be sitting there and watch the wildlife in the lake.
Can you imagine a nice swing or hammock here with a cold drink?
Or sitting with your kids watching the sun go down over the lake?
