Silver Lake

Silver Lake sits just to the west of Wolverine. It is a picturesque kettle lake (formed by a large ice chunk left behind by the glaciers) with no inlets or outlets. Silver Lake is quite small, but very deep, which lends to the beautiful blue hues reflected from the lake’s watery depths.

Description:

Silver Lake sits just to the west of Wolverine. It is a picturesque kettle lake (formed by a large ice chunk left behind by the glaciers) with no inlets or outlets. Silver Lake is quite small, but very deep, which lends to the beautiful blue hues reflected from the lake’s watery depths. Although much of the shoreline is developed, the lake continues to boast high water quality. 

Silver Lake is located in Wilmot Township in the SW corner of Cheboygan County. It is not to be confused with other Silver Lakes in Cheboygan County.

Silver Lake is monitored through the Watershed Council’s Comprehensive Water Quality Monitoring (CWQM) Program

It is NOT monitored through the Watershed Council’s Volunteer Lake Monitoring (VLM) Program. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, contact the Watershed Council at 231-347-1181. It was monitored from 1991-2006.
