Elk Lake Real Estate Listings and Information

Elk Lake

A visit to Elk Lake is a fisherman's dream come true. The huge lake is nearly 200 ft deep in some areas and is actually deep enough to offer lake trout fishing winter and summer.

Elk Lake is the tail-end of the fourteen lakes and rivers in the Northern Chain of Lakes. A mile or so up the Elk River and you will find yourself in Grand Traverse Bay. Elk Lake is not an extension of the Bay, but a glacial lake gouged into the river valley and sports its own ecology and fish populations. It is the third largest inland lake in Michigan-only Houghton and Torch Lakes are larger. About eight miles long and up to four miles wide, there is plenty of space for all types of fishing and other water sports.
