Hamlin Lake is a great Michigan vacation spot for summer fun—full of great swimming, boating, tubing, fishing, and more! However, it also has year-round activities for the whole family. Located about 4 miles from downtown Ludington, this great getaway will become a favorite.
The lake itself is quite large at more than 12 miles long and covering more than 5,000 acres. It reaches the Manistee National Forest to the north, awesome sand dunes to the west side, and miles of gorgeous natural wonder everywhere else! This man-made inland lake also borders Ludington State Park and has a great beach to spend the afternoon. It is a great place to swim or rent a boat to explore the lake.
If you are a looking for a fishing trip, this is also your destination! Tiger Muskie, crappie, northern pike, large and small mouth bass, perch, blue gill and walleye are all ready and waiting for you! Tip-ups and shanties cover the ice throughout the winter for year-round enjoyment.
Winter fun at Hamlin Lake Michigan also means ice skating and cross country trails along the lake through Ludington State Park’s beautifully maintained trails.
Any time of year… Spend a day or spend a week…you will be glad that you did.
