Walloon-Lake is located in the northwest portion of Michigans Lower Peninsula just south of Petoskey near Little Traverse Bay. Considered one of the prettiest freshwater lakes in the world, Walloon Lake is the 26th largest lake in Michigan. During pre-glacial times, the lake existed as a river valley and was reshaped and deepened by glacial activity. The lake surface is 7.3 square miles and has a shoreline of 30 miles. It is about 100 feet above the elevation of Little Traverse Bay. Beautiful Walloon Lake has had many well known visitors, including Ernest Hemingway and his family, who made it their summertime getaway when he was young. Abundant wildlife is located in the area and great care is taken by officials to maintain the clean water and fresh air surrounding Walloon Lake. Recreational activities available in the area include fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, hiking and camping. Autumn is a wonderful time to visit for fall color tours and snowmobiling and cross-country skiing are available in winter. Nearby, the city of Petoskey offers its "Gaslight Shopping District, which is a six-square-block area with more than 70 art galleries, craft and specialty shops and restaurants.

Walloon Lake Weather & Climate

The Great Lakes dominate northern Michigan's weather. What is known as "lake effect snow squalls" bring locally heavy snow to northern and western Michigan, with the southwest receiving much less snow. Summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the Lakes chills the air near the Earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. The Lakes also modify summer high temperatures, making the northern parts of the state a popular vacation spot. Summer temperatures are typically in the upper 70s to lower 80s, with cool nights. Autumn is too cool for swimming, but is a great time for other outdoor attractions. The luminous phenomenon known as the Northern Lights is usually visible from northern Michigan 30 nights per year, most commonly in March, April, September and October.
