Lake Fenton Fenton MI Information

Lake Fenton Fenton MI Lake Fenton is a public lake with 18 acres of islands including Cases's Island and has a State of Michigan DNR boat launch.  Lake Fenton is a spring-fed “kettle lake,” meaning it was formed after a glacier melted. Many of Michigan's inland lakes are kettle lakes,  though in SE Michigan you will find some man made lakes.  .

The lake is 95-feet deep at the lowest point, and on average, 21 feet. It is  the largest lake in Genessee County at 845 acres. Years ago Lake Fenton used to be called Long Lake, (it is about 3 miles long from one end to the other), as it stretches from North Long Lake Road to South Long Lake Road.
