Big Glen Lake Lake Getaways

lake getaways

A relatively popular destination for Vacation Home Rentals, Big Glen Lake is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the entire state of Michigan. This lake offers boating, swimming, and fishing for lake trout, yellow perch, smallmouth bass and more. The many trails, roads and elevations in the area make Glen Lake a popular destination for runners as well.

Big Glen Lake is located in Leelanau County and displays a spectacular setting next to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. With no lack of sand to filter through its waters, Big Glen Lake has shockingly clear water with an iridescent glow of sapphire blue. This unique lake is one of two bodies of water connected by a narrow channel beneath a state route 22 bridge. At the end of August, many prestigious schools send students from athletic programs to the Glen Lake area for training. Some of these institutions include the University of Michigan and the University of Virginia.
