Fineout Creek (South Arm Creek)

Fineout Creek (a.k.a. South Arm Creek) is located in Evangeline and Melrose Townships of Charlevoix County at the southern tip of Walloon Lake’s Foot Basin. The main branch flows from south to north through extensive wetland complexes, crisscrossing M75 and flowing under Shadow Trails before draining into Walloon Lake. The west branch of the creek originates in the vicinity of a small lake encircled by wetlands and flows from west to east along Fineout Road. The main branch drops over 70’ throughout 3 miles of channel length, whereas the west branch drops approximately 80’ over the course of 1.25 miles.
