The largest all sports lake in Commerce Michigan are highly desirable because they are close to I-96.  These lakes are close to M-5 too.  It makes for an easier commute to and from work.  If you don't know about commuting in the Oakland County lakes area let me explain a little a bit about it.  There are lakes scattered all over the area.  When early residents of Oakland County made the roads they curved around the lakes to get from one place to another.  It is the same way today.  Whether you head north or south, east or west many of the roads are two lane roads that curve around the lakes.  Sometimes there is a lake on both sides of the road.  Most of the roads in the lake area are still two lane roads because they can't be widened because of  costs or the geography.

So the commute during the rush hours to and from work can be very congested.  Especially when M-5 goes from 3 lanes to a one lane lakes area.  That is why when there are lake homes and lakes in Commerce it because more desirable because it is so much easier to get to work.   Especially if they work at Ford, or downtown Detroit.

Here are the 3 biggest all sports lakes in Commerce Michigan

Lake Sherwood and Lake Sherwood homes.
