Torch Lake Area
The beautiful jewel colored waters of Torch Lake are a joy to return to again and again. Torch Lake runs into to Lake Skegemog, Elk Lake and into Lake Michigan from the Torch River. It is one of the largest lakes in Michigan with surface area of 18,770 acres and 40 miles of shoreline. It is a fabulous all-sports lake as well as great fishing lake (think lake trout, whitefish, small mouth).
On the south end of Torch, visit the quaint town of Alden for the annual Strawberry Festival in June or an Alden evening stroll. Visit the 7 Bridges natural area for a peaceful walk along 300 acres and a mile of Rapid River frontage. Our Torch Lake rentals also include Elk Lake, Bellaire (home to world famous Short’s Brewing Co) and Mancelona. Torch Lake is a beautiful and ideal vacation location!
