Maceday and Lotus are both all sports lakes and are connected for a total acreage of 419 acres. Maceday Lake is located in Waterford, Michigan. The majority of Lotus Lake is located in Waterford Township, but the northern tip falls into Independence Township (more commonly known as Clarkston). There is a public access site at Williams Lake Rd just east of Maceday Lake Rd.

Maceday and Lotus Lakes are all sports lakes- great for the water skier or jet skier in the summer and snowmobiler in the winter.

For the fisherman, Maceday Lake is a designated trout lakeand was stocked last fall with 1,000 lake trout with some of the fish being up to 18 inches long and ranging in age from 2-4 years. Maceday Lake was also stocked with 12,000 rainbow trout in 2010 and another 12,760 rainbow trout in April, 2010.

In 2009 sale prices ranged from $76,000 - $590,000. 9 of the 12 sales in 2009 were under $200K and one of those sold for under $100K. Of the 12 sales in 2009 3 were bank owned, 3 were short sales, and there were 3 sold listings where the listing agent didn't bother filling in the lake name field of the MLS.
