Watkins Lake homes in Waterford Here is the list of the biggest all sports lake in Waterford.  All of these beautiful lakes have all sorts of sizes, and styles of lake homes on them.  Years ago many lakes in Waterford were weekend getaways for Detroiters in the 1920's to 1950's.  Little lake cottages were scattered around Waterford's lakes.  Over the years many of them have been remodeled and added onto.  Some were torn down to make way for bigger custom built homes.  Sometimes there were even multiple homes torn down to build a custom luxury estate home.   There are not many good vacant lake lots left to build on.  They are very rare.  Usually if there is a lake lot left there is something wrong with it.  If you are looking for a lake house in Waterford then you may want to see homes on these lakes

The  community of Waterford in Oakland County Michigan has about 34 lakes and many different ages of lakefront homes.  There are many parks that have access to the lakes, including the Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area, Dodge Brothers State Park and Waterford Oaks county park. A few of these lakes are so big that they are in other cities too, as the community boundaries run through the center of the lake.  No matter what you are looking for you will surely find it here in Waterford Township.  MI. 

Motor boating on Sylvan Lake in Waterford

Sylvan-Otter Lake.  There is an incredibly wide variety of waterfront homes on Sylvan Lake, located in several different Michigan cities, including Keego Harbor, the City of Sylvan Lake, and Waterford Township, all of which are a part of Oakland County, Michigan.  Sylvan Lake encompasses Otter Lake and is a total of 532 acres, with a maximum depth of 71 feet.  There is a public beach with public access, but this is semi-private, because it is for Sylvan Lake’s waterfront residents only.  All sports vehicles are allowed on Sylvan Lake, and it is also home to the Oakland County, Michigan Boat Club, which provides a private social club and marina and sponsors great events on the lake.  Sylvan Lake is one of the absolute finest places to live waterfront in Oakland County, Michigan.
