FUN THINGS TO DO in the summer, winter, or rainy days:
~ Boating! Few boats are on the lake even on the weekends, which makes for great water skiing, tubing, kneeboarding, swimming, and visits to the beach. Boat launch nearby.
~ Lake Michigan! Boat launch for Lake Michigan is available in town.
~ Fishing! Hamlin Lake is known for great fishing. Catch perch, bass, sunfish, and more right off the dock or on the lake. Ice fishing is popular in the winter. Salmon and many other fish are in Lake Michigan and the Pere Marquette River. A fishing license is required and is available down the block at the marina or in town.
