There are pontoons and paddle boats on the lake. There were no motorboats from what I could see. So I am guessing it is not an all-sports lake. The children that live on the lake go to Clarkston Schools.
Another nearby lake is Cranberry Lake

Here is what a previous client said about me!
My husband and I chose Russ to be our real estate agent after a friend highly recommended him. We were moving here from Canada and only had a few days to look at homes. When we came in to town, Russ went far above the call of duty. He had thoroughly planned our 2 days and had numerous homes lined up for us to view. After talking to us briefly and asking us a few questions before our arrival, he new exactly what types of homes would be ideal for us. After searching for a short time he found the perfect home for us.
After the sale, Russ even met our painters, carpet cleaners and home inspector at our new home since we were still out of town. He also gave us detailed lists of available utility companies, schools, cable services, cleaning companies, house cleaners, fun things to do and wonderful restaurants in the area. Russ made the entire experience enjoyable and easy. He has a laid back, genuine personality and my entire family felt comfortable with him immediately. He feels like a friend not just our real estate agent.
I would HIGHLY recommend Russ to anyone with complete confidence.
