pettibonelakePettibone Lake is located in Lilley Township in northern Newaygo County. This Michigan lake is located two miles east off M 37, just off 15 Mile Road.  Pettibone Lake consists of 44 acres of surface waters with reported depths of 40 feet. The lake seems to have a sandy bottom.

Driving around the lake, one would get a sense that they were in a causal resort community. Pettibone Lake is almost completely developed with a nice mix of year round homes and seasonal cottages. Directly o the south of the lake there are over 1600 acres of contiguous federal land, all being part of the Manistee National Forest.

Newaygo County maintains the Pettibone Lake County Park on the northern side of the lake. This small three acre county park features a sandy beach, picnic shelter and sixteen campsites with electrical hookups and vault toilet facilities.  The county also maintains a public boat launch at the site. Although this park is not fancy with all the bells and whistles, it is a great place for summer outdoor lakefront activities. In our opinion, bigger is not always better. And this park is not one to be overlooked.
