Long Lake Park

Activities and Facilities

Boat Launch
Long Lake covers more than 50 acres, with 2/3rds of its scenic shoreline within the boundaries of Long Lake Park. It's a great place for kayaking and canoeing! The park has a boat launch for non-motorized boats (small electric motors allowed) off Long Lake Dr NW, just south of the picnic areas on the west side of the lake. The coordinates for the launch are -85.665103, 43.210895.

Fishing is also popular at the park, either from the designated fishing areas along the shore (shown on the park map) or from a boat on the water.

Swim Beach
Visitors will find an inviting sand beach off Krauskopf Rd NE, at the northeast corner of the lake. Swimming is free and a playground is nearby. There are no lifeguards. The beach coordinates are -85.66013, 43.215758.
long lake playground
Two playground structures are available at Long Lake Park. One is near the beach (shown above) and the other is in the wooded picnic area on the west side of the lake, off Long Lake Dr NW.

Picnics and Group Events
Long Lake Park has six picnic areas, an open picnic shelter, and an enclosed shelterhouse that are available for picnics and other group events such as weddings, meetings, reunions and parties. All of these may be reserved for a fee. If picnic areas or the open shelter are not reserved, they are available first-come first-served for no fee.
