Beautiful lake

This place is an unsung beauty. Not many people on it at all. Very quiet but very large! It's not really a true lake, but a dammed off river. Still, LOVELY.

I have fished this lake for over 15 years. Have caught blue gills, walleye, Bass, carp, and catfish. Largest catfish 24 pounds. Also great scenery and would be great for canoeing or kayaking larger area ppoweer boat with skiers. A lot of undeveloped land getting you back to nature.

Pack your fishing gear, oh yes, and a big picnic, gas up the car for a good ole fashioned country drive. The scenic drive around Lake Allegan and historic view of the great Allegan Dam...this is where you will join other fisherman for your catch of the day...oh yea, bring some chairs to sit on the banks, this is fresh...

After eating at the Grill House we went downtown Allegan & was impressed with the town & the park that was clean & comfortable. The sunset was absolutely breathtaking.

Lake Allegan has homes on it and boat docks and pontoon boats and nothing else. There is no reason to go there unless you are visiting relatives.

Located in aheavy forested area caused by the damming of the river I believe. Great fishing I am told. YOu can drive around the Lake liked all the coves and trees surrounding it.
