Magician-Lake is part of the "Sister Lakes" region of Lower Michigan, about 20 minutes east of St. Joseph and six miles northwest of the city of Dowagiac. It is the largest of the lakes in the Sister Lakes area with a total of 498 acres, three islands, two marinas and a sand bar. The gradual depth of Magician Lake makes it a great swimming lake for children, and boat rentals, fishing, water skiing and other lake activities are also available on the lake. Most of Magician Lake lies within Cass County; the other lakes of the region include Round, Big Crooked and Little Crooked and Dewey Lakes. There is one outlet on Magician Lake that is known as Silver Creek, located on the eastern shores. It drains south into the Dowagiac River and then into the St. Joseph River watershed of Lake Michigan. Other recreational activities in the area include hiking, biking, golf, hunting, skiing, snowmobiling and sledding. The nearby town of Dowagiac is filled with beautiful Victorian architecture and has a vibrant downtown area for shopping, restaurants, theaters and museums. St. Joseph is a deep-water port town that has picturesque brick roads and many unique shops, art galleries, antique shops and cafes. Magician Lake is located just thirty miles north of South Bend, Indiana and one hour from Kalamazoo.

Snowfall is moderate along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Heavier snowfall in the state is found in the Upper Peninsula and the upper reaches of the Lower Peninsula. The Great Lakes help moderate winter temperatures, but still, average highs in January in the southwest portion of the state can be expected to be in the 20s. Breezes along the shoreline of Lake Michigan helps keep temperatures cooler in the summertime and humidity is considered average. Statewide annual rainfall is around 35 inches, with the higher amounts in the upper regions of the state and along the Lake Michigan border.
