    About Fish Lake - Almena Twp
    Located in Van Buren County, Michigan

    Fish Lake is located in Almena Township (Van Buren County), Michigan. The lake near the city of Kalamazoo is 14 miles away by the shortest route.

    The closest airport is Kalamazoo/Battlecreek International Airport which is 19 miles away. The closest hospital is the Bronson Lakeview Hospital which is 13 miles away.

    Fun on the Lake

    Fish Lake is 34 acres in size, meaning that boating and water skiing at high speeds will be difficult if the lake is crowded. Other water-based activities like swimming, fishing, and kayaking, among others, are perfectly accessible.

    Most of the properties on the lake are along the lake’s eastern shore, and they have docks for your watercraft. There is also a public access boat launch for your convenience.

    Fishing fans should be on the lookout for bluegill, largemouth bass, northern pike, and yellow perch.

    What Lies Beyond the Water

    The lake is a very short distance from Kalamazoo, which means that the city’s attractions and eateries are all within arm's reach. However, there are some locations close to the lake that are not in Kalamazoo as well.

    One such location is Portman Nature Preserve which features beautiful blooming flowers in the spring and gorgeous snowy landscapes in fall. The area is highly rated, and hikes in the preserve will allow you to see great sights of nature.

    Another great attraction is Red Hawk Helicopter Tours. This service allows you to see the world from a new perspective. See the cities of Michigan like South Haven or Benton Harbor like never before!

    After you’ve had your high-flying adventure, come by The Garden Griddle and pick up a delicious sandwich to fill you up!
