Long-Lake is located in a forested resort area of Northwest Lower Michigan, approximately five miles southwest of downtown Traverse City and 3.5 miles north of Interlochen. Long Lake Township Park is situated on the lake just off Highway 610 southwest of Traverse City. Long Lake is a 3,000-acre "all sports" lake that offers two sandy beach areas, volleyball court, basketball and tennis courts, a boat launch and a smooth, sandy bottom that is great for swimming. Fishing for bass, perch, muskie and northern pike is also popular in Long Lake and locals say it has "the best Walleye fishing in northern Michigan." Other recreational opportunities in the area include hiking and biking, windsurfing, jet skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and sledding. Nearby Traverse City offers lots of shopping and dining options, and is home to several beautiful and challenging golf courses. Other nearby places of interest include the Rifle River Recreation Area, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the Spirit of the Woods Museum and the Dennos Museum Center. Just a short drive south of Long Lake is the village of Interlochen, home to the famous Interlochen Center for the Arts, which includes a summer arts camp, two large outdoor concert halls, an art gallery and a theater.

Long Lake Weather & Climate

The lake effect is quite strong on the northwest area of Lower Michigan near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. This area has a distinct four-season climate, although Lake Michigan helps modify temperatures, keeping them cooler in late spring and early summer, and warmer during late fall and winter. Showers and thunderstorms are common in spring and summer, and precipitation is generally evenly distributed during the crop season of April through September, receiving an average of 17.45 inches of rain during that time. The lake also acts as a giant humidifier, increasing moisture content in the air throughout the year. However, extremely hot and humid summer days are not that common and don't last long in this part of the state. Snowfall varies greatly from season to season.
