What To Do In White Lake
Did we mention the 21 lakes?
Ask almost any resident of White Lake and they’ll share with you their favorite boating, fishing or kayaking spot. Like much of Michigan, the town’s lakes are one of the biggest attractions, and with an average temperature of 79 degrees in the summer months, cooling off in the water is a great way to spend your day.
Head to the public beach at Teeple Lake or dock your boat at the White Lake Inn and grab a bite to eat. If your perfect summer day is spent avoiding water, golf courses like Brentwood Golf Club and Banquet Center and the White Lake Oaks Golf Course might be a better fit for you.
In the fall, the trails at the Highland Recreation Area are especially beautiful. They’re made to accommodate equestrian riders, mountain bikers, hikers and peaceful, afternoon hikers. At the Indian Springs Metropark, you can head to the trails or go straight to the Environmental Discovery Center to learn about the nature surrounding you.
The winter brings new exciting activities in White Lake, too. Whether you’re the type to hit the slopes or retreat to the lodge with a hot chocolate, the Alpine Valley Ski Resort is the place to be. Trails range from beginner to intermediate, difficult and freestyle, so all skillsets are welcome.
