Located in the northwest corner of Washtenaw County, Michigan, about 7 miles north of Chelsea, North Lake is a lovely lake surrounded by a friendly lake community.  Dedicated volunteers continually do water testing to insure the lake stays healthy. Others plan our annual fireworks display and boat parade. Thanks to all who make our lake community so great.

Lake Algae

A lake treatment for the algae was done on June 4th.  We will be monitoring the results to assure the problem is resolved. There are no restrictions on using the lake following this treatment.

The algae in the lake this year has been more problematic than previous years. This algae appears to come from the bottom sediments which does not dissipate as quickly as normal spring algae.

The Fabulous People of North Lake

Protect The Turtle Log

All boaters are asked to stay away from the Turtle Log. Boat props harm both the turtle habitat and the turtles themselves.
