Torch Lake

Torch Lake and daydreams go hand-in-hand, and once you've discovered her, you'll not soon break the spell. Varying depths along Torch's 20 miles create many unusual colors that change with the weather and the time of day. During your visit, her waters may offer a palette ranging from emerald green and deep blue on sunny days to golden orange at Sunset.

Torch Lake is the third most beautiful lake in the world according to National Geographic Magazine, behind only Lake Geneva in Switerland and Lake Louise in Canada
