Arcadia Lake

arcadialakemanisteecountyIn the northwestern corner of Manistee County lies this often overlooked Michigan lake, Arcadia Lake located on the edge of Arcadia. Arcadia lies on the Lake Michigan shoreline and is home to several well known West Michigan destinations. The Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club is just south of town with 245 acres of lakefront on Lake Arcadia and 3,100 feet of waterfront on Lake Michigan.

Arcadia is also home to the Camp Arcadia, a summer family camp on Lake Michigan operated by the Lutherans. Each year, thousands of guests come to enjoy the water, sun and the quiet of the camp.

Arcadia, like many other West Michigan resort communities, dramatically increases in population during the summer season. Those who live in the area love their scenenic  surroundings.

Arcadia Lake, on the southern edge of the community, adds to the overall beauty of the area. On the east side of M22, nature lovers will appreciate the 170 acres of wetlands and the many species of wildlife that call the wetlands home.

Although being separated from Lake Michigan by the dunes, the lake is connected to Lake Michigan by a channel. There is a public access to the lake at the end of Pine Street featuring a hard surface boat launch with a fishing pier. No swimming is allowed at that location, but it is still a great spot to enjoy the water and catch a few fish.
