About Lake Macatawa

The Gem of Ottawa County

 

Located just minutes outside of the historical city of Holland, MI, Lake Macatawa shares its shoreline with Holland State Park and Lake Michigan.

 

From the Netherlands to the Midwest

Originally called Black Lake by natives, Lake Macatawa was settled by Dutch immigrants in 1847.

 

The 1,700-acre lake soon became a prosperous business and residential district thanks to the Chicago yachting crowd that sensed potential at the mouth of the channel.

 

President Gerald Ford used to spend his summers at the family property here growing up, and Frank Baum took advantage of the serenity of his family's cottage to write his famous novel The Wizard of Oz.

Fun in the Sun (or Snow)

It might be impossible to run out of things to do here: not only does the lake share part of its shoreline with a state park and is a stone's throw away from a museum, but hiking, camping, kayaking and sailing are just a few of the activities lake-goers enjoy.

 

It's an easy sail away from Chicago, and the marinas provide fine dining to guests year-round.

 

And in the winter, there's ice fishing for those anglers willing to brave the Michigan cold.

Things to Do, Places to See

Lake Macatawa is full of activities and events year-round for everyone to enjoy!

 

Each spring, in keeping with the nearby city of Holland's tradition, tulips pop up in every hue, lining the streets of downtown and the historical districts, just in time for the Tulip Time Festival in May.

 

The festival is a celebration of Holland's rich Dutch culture.

 

However, it's not just the Dutch that receive recognition!

 

The annual Tulipanes Latino Art & Film Festival and the LAUP Fiesta both celebrate Latin American heritage and its contributions to their community through art, music and food.

A Ten Out of Ten

Lake Macatawa is fun-filled, community-oriented and perfect for the entire family!

 

With an endless list of activities to tend to and prime real estate to choose from, this lake may just have it all.
