Walloon Lake is located in Northern Michigan near Charlevoix in Charlevoix and Emmet counties. It is now home to many vacation homes and cottages.
Walloon Lake was initailly named Talcott, who was a local butcher. Later named Walloon Lake, it is thought that a group of Walloons settled at the far north end of the lake.
The lake has 30 miles of shoreline and appears to be shaped in human body form. Thus, natives refer to their homes on the "west arm", or the "foot" or the "knee cap", etc. The lake covers 4,200+ acres and is primarily fed from springs. Its deepest point is just over 100 ft deep.
