About Magician Lake

Part of the Sister Lakes Region

The Sister Lakes area of southwestern Michigan includes six different lakes, including Big Crooked Lake, Little Crooked Lake, Cable Lake, Dewey Lake, Round Lake and Magician Lake.

 

Sitting just six miles away from the historical city of Dowagiac, and one hour away from Kalamazoo, Magician Lake is located in Cass and Van Buren counties.

 

A Rich History Dating Back to the 1830s

The 528-acre lake was originally called Silver Lake by Native American inhabitants due to the concentration of silver-colored marlstone at the lake's bottom.

 

Some time later, in the early 1830s, Cass County became home to a significant amount of abolitionist Quakers who brought with them a number of African-American freedmen to settle the land.

 

The area soon became a major part of the Underground Railroad, and the African-American community eventually grew and prospered as businessmen and merchants.

 

Premier Warm-Water Fishing, Jet Skiing, Ice Fishing and More

Considered a premier warm-water fishery, Magician Lake is home to a variety of fish, including bluegill, largemouth, black and rock bass, northern pike and Walleye.

 

In the summer months, residents enjoy kayaking, hiking, jet skiing and canoeing.

 

Activities like ice fishing and snowmobiling are popular in the winter months.

 

Year-round, however, antiquing and shopping in the vibrant downtown area of nearby Dowagiac is a favorite pastime in the community.

 

Picnics and Parades

During the summer, Magician Lake hosts two annual events for lake residents.

 

The Polk Picnic is held on Fourth of July weekend at the Polk Waterfront for a day of music, food and fun.

 

Later in the year, the Boat Parade is the big event of Labor Day weekend.

 

A Year-Round Retreat for the Whole Family

Whether you're canoeing with friends in the hot August sun or pummeling your family members with snowballs on Christmas eve, Magician Lake is a fun-filled retreat regardless of the season.
