When summer arrives in Michigan, everyone cheers!
Nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan, the White Lake area boasts miles of Great Lakes shoreline, plus freshwater rivers, lakes, and streams galore. Rent kayaks or canoes right here in town and take them out on White River or White Lake. Head to the marina and book a fishing charter to catch your very own dinner with family and friends. Or grab a towel and some snacks and spend the day lazing on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. It’s all possible during a White Lake Summer.
Water activities aren’t the only thing White Lake has going for it in the summer. This is the season when the 22-mile Hart-Montague Trail State Park is in its full glory with lush green landscapes and active wildlife. Pack a picnic and rent bikes for a memorable day trip. Or, for the thrill seekers among us, take the family to Michigan’s Adventure for a day of amusement park fun.
Even if your unique adventure consists of serious shopping in Downtown Whitehall or Montague or wandering around the farmers market or art fair with friends, we’ve got you covered. And when your stomach starts to growl? We’ve got places to eat galore — from fine dining and family establishments to quick eats, quaint delis, and cozy pubs.
