Oxbow Lake has a very large population of swans. There is a bar on the lake called Spraders on the Lake. The southern part of the lake runs right along Elizabeth Lake Rd. So there are quite a few homes right on Elizabeth Lake Rd.
Oxbow Lake is part of the Huron River Chain. It is fed upstream by Tull Lake and Pontiac Lake. The run off from the lake flows into Cedar Island Lake.
Oxbow Lake is fairly deep. It has four deep holes of 43', 59', 64', an 72' deep. Much of the lake is over ten foot deep.
It is about a mile long and a 1/3 of a mile wide in the large part of the lake. The bar Spraders on the Lake is on the south side of the lake.
One of the questions I ask my lakefront home buyers is do you like the view of the water or do you want lake access? The reason I ask this questions is about the affordability of buying a lake home. You can buy a canal front home on some lakes for less money. You can get more home for the money on a canal. So if a lake view is not an important factor you may get more for your money by buying a canal front home. Canal front homes on Cass Lake in Waterford or Cedar Island Lake in White Lake are going to cost less than a waterfront home of similar size on the same lake. So deciding what you want in a lake and a lake home is very important to think about before starting your search. That is one of the pros of buying on a canal. There are pros and cons on where you live on a lake.
For example do you want to see the sunset? Being on the west shore of a lake gives you a great view of the sunset. However with that view you will get all the stuff from the east side of the lake. The west winds will blow seaweed, leaves, and miscellaneous articles to your shoreline. ( I live on the west side of a lake so I know of these issues. These are just some of the different things that come up with buying a waterfront property for sale in Oakland County Michigan. That is why it is important to hire a good full time experienced lake realtor like myself to help you understand our local lakes.

Oxbow Lake Location
Oxbow Lake is located in White Lake Township, Oakland County MI. It is North of Elizabeth Lake Rd, South of Highland Rd and East of Teggerdine Rd.
Part of the lake almost touches M-59.
Near by lakes are Neva Lake, Bogie Lake, Brendel Lake and Sugden Lake
This is a question many lake home buyers either do not care about or are adamant about? Do you want a lake that is public or would you prefer a private lake? A private lake is a lake where the general public cannot put a boat on the lake. A public lake may have a DNR access point where there are a certain number of parking spots to put boats in. A public lake may be on a chain of lakes where there may be no public DNR access but the public still has access to the lake because they can get from one lake to the other. For example that would be the Portage chain of Lakes near Hamburg in Livingston County.
Some lakes have marinas on them like Cass Lake, or Elizabeth Lake. Elizabeth Lake is considered a private lake but there sure are quite a few boats on it. The bigger the lake, the more likely that there are going to be a lot of boats on it. Sometimes home owners will allow their friends to dock their boat at their house. I have seen homes on lake in Oakland and Livingston County where there are two and three different boats tied up at one dock. You know that they are not driving two pontoon boats around.
In Southeastern Michigan most medium to large all sports lake are going to be busy on the weekend. It is just that way. Some of the smaller all sports lakes are quieter. So private or public is a choice you have to make. Remember if you are just looking at private lakes and cannot find the home you want then you may want to expand your search to public lakes in Southeastern Michigan
