5 top lakes in Commerce Township MI

Welcome to Commerce MichiganToday I am just going to touch on the bigger all sports lakes in Commerce.  Two of the lakes I am going to talk about are in two different cities.  Both Union Lake and Middle Straits Lake lie mostly in West Bloomfield Township but the western tips lie in Commerce Township.  Three of the lakes in Commerce Twp that we are going to talk about today are private lakes.  Again the two public lakes are Union Lake and Middle Straits Lake.

Commerce Lake is a large lake in Commerce Township, Michigan that is home to many waterfront properties.  The lake is an impressive 236 acres with a convenient maximum depth of 67 feet.  Though another source has the lake at 292 acres in size.  It is an all-sports lake that is private, with only those living on its waterfront homes having access.  Commerce Lake epitomizes waterfront property living in Michigan. Commerce Lake is actually two lakes North Commerce Lake and South Commerce Lake.  You will find many sizes and styles of waterfront homes on Commerce Lake.  There are still the small 800 square foot cottages,  but you will also find larger newer homes.  The old smaller homes have been torn down and rebuilt or been added onto.  They have remodeled the homes, updated the kitchens or baths from the old 1920's to the 1950's homes.

  1. Union Lake  (mostly in West Bloomfield MI)

Union Lake is what I would consider more of a upper end lake.  The home prices per square foot are going to be higher than prices on Long Lake in Commerce or Cooley Lake in White Lake.  You are going to find homes that are taken care of, bigger, and newer. You won't find many of the old cottages on the lake. I would say the average home is going to be over 1800 square foot on the lake. 

  • All sports lake                      Yes
  • Private                                 No
  • Size                                      465 acres
  • Maximum Depth                   110 feet

  • Wake restrictions                 Unknown
  • Water Source                      Unknown
  • Cities the lake lies in                        Commerce, West Blommfield
