Susan Lake is located in northern Charlevoix County, approximately 4 miles from downtown Charlevoix. It is shallow, narrow, and supports a healthy fish community, including northern pike and pan fish. Susan Creek flows out the northern end, traversing 2 miles through Little Traverse Conservancy and other protected lands before emptying into Lake Michigan.
