Big Manistique Lake

If you enjoy WATER RECREATION take a long look at the Manistique Lakes Area. The six major lakes are: North Manistique Lake at 1,722 acres; Big Manistique Lake at 10,130 acres; South Manistique Lake at 4,001 acres; Milakokia Lake at 1,956 acres; Lake Ann Louise at 311 acres; and Millecoquins Lake at 1,890 acres. With numerous other small lakes in the area, a visitor has well over 20,000 acres of inland lake water to enjoy, in addition to the great lakes of Superior and Michigan, and hundreds of miles of rivers and streams!

The Lakes provide a variety of cool water fish which include: Muskie up to 40 lbs., Northern Pike, Walleye, Large and Small mouth Bass, Perch, Bluegill, Sunfish, Rock Bass, and Bullheads. The rivers and streams provide Brook, Brown, Rainbow, and Steelhead Trout, plus great smelt runs in the spring. Special regulations apply - see DNR Fishing Guide for details.

Most of the waters are 30 ft. or less, so temperatures warm early and are very pleasant for swimming, water skiing and other activities. Boats, motors, jet skis, pontoon and paddle-boats are available for rentals at area dealers.
