Located within Mason County, Ford Lake is one of Michiganís quality lakes. Ford Lake is respectable in size with its 200 acres and reported depths of up to 80 feet. One can hike around the 3.5 mile perimeter of the lake in about an hour or less.

A public launch is located on the Northeast side of the lake on East Griffin Road. Parking is limited. Restrooms are available. Fishermen report catches of Bass, Pike, Panfish and Walleye.

If the fish are not biting at Ford Lake there are other options as the lake is within a mile of Blue Lake and Thunder Lake, within three miles of Tallman Lake and Round Lake, as well as minutes from thousands of acres public land within the Manistee National Forest.

Ford Lake is about two miles down the road from Fountain Michigan. Fountain is one of those small Michigan Towns that sometimes can be overlooked. This one should not be. It is quant and picturesque.
