Attention: Lake Treatment scheduled for week of 8/24/20 has been delayed due to weather. It will now happen on Tuesday 9/1/20 (weather permitting).

Houghton Lake is Michigan's largest inland lake. It is an extraordinary resource that provides fishing, boating, swimming, and other recreational opportunities to thousands of people who use and enjoy the lake. Houghton Lake is an important part of the local economy.

Recognizing the need to effectively manage Houghton Lake, the Houghton Lake Improvement Board was established in 2000 under provisions of Michigan's Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. In accordance with state law, the lake board is composed of a representative of each of the four townships that border the lake, a county commissioner, the county drain commissioner, and a

lakefront property owner. Several members of the Houghton Lake Improvement Board are lake residents. The Lake Board has made the coordinated management of Houghton Lake possible.
