loonlakeLoon Lake is located in Benzie County, just off M22 where it crosses the Platte River, and a few minutes north of Frankfort, Michigan.

While this lake might be easily overlooked because of the many larger lakes in the area, (Crystal Lake, Platte Lake, Little Plate Lake and Long Lake), as well as several nearby mid sized Michigan lakes, (Mud Lake, Rush Lake, Otter Lake and Bass Lake), stopping at Loon Lake would be well worth your time.

loonlakebenziecountyLoon Lake is a 100 plus acre sand bottom lake with a great boat ramp. This is one of the few lakes in the lakeshore area where motorboats are allowed. There is no sand beach, but you can easily reach the water from the grassy shore and wade out near the boat ramp where the bottom is firm and sandy.

There are a few houses scattered along the shore to the left of the boat access, but for the most part the area remains untouched.

The northern end of the lake is very shallow and countless people have crossed it as they floated down the Platte River.

We know that after a day filled with swimming and great fishing, you will have worked up quite an appetite.  So, before you leave home, be sure to pack some brats and burgers and after your day on the water, head to the pavilion located a short distance from the boat ramp. This attractive pavilion, nestled among the shade trees, has grills and picnic tables and is one of the nicest we have seen. The nearby restrooms are modern, clean and well kept up.

So, when you are looking for a day, or just a few hours in the sun, don’t overlook Loon Lake!

This launch is top of the line. It is always clean and well maintained. The lake itself is small but in the middle of Sleeping Bear National Park, which means there are very few homes. There is some "people activity" of tubers that cut across small section to continue on Platte River. There is also a wonderful livery called, The Riverside. Excellent "hand food' such as hambugers and ice cream. For the adventurous fisherman, I see very few who try but have heard that Loon has some big pike and is well stocked due to its connection to Lake Michigan. The larger boats cannot travel to Lake Michigan though, due to a fish damn, but is kayak, aluminum, and canoe friendly.
