Schoofs Creek

Schoof’s Creek is located in Resort and Bear Creek Townships of Emmet County at the northern tip of Walloon Lake’s North Arm. The main branch flows over 4 miles from north to south, roughly following Resort Pike to Williams Road, where it then flows southeast through a large wetland complex before draining into Walloon Lake. Another tributary of Schoof’s Creek, which originates in the Little Traverse Conservancy Bubbling Spring Preserve at Intertown Road, flows approximately 2 miles before it converges with the main branch to the south of Williams Road. The main branch drop approximately 70’ throughout its length. There is little data we have on this stream so please contact us if you have any information you can provide.
