Runyan Lake is a private, all sports lake in Tyrone Township, less than one mile south of Fenton MI and between White Lake Rd and Center Rd. The homes on this lake fall under the Fenton schooling district. It is approximately 180 acres, with a maximum depth of 55 feet and no public access. The only boats allowed must be registered to lakefront property owners, who have paid their membership and are up to date on dues.
Runyan Lake Inc.
Runyan Lake has a strong lake association that provides Livingston County with a true sense of community. The Lake Association owns and maintains a very nice island in the center of the lake on the south end. The island used to be much larger but erosion made it smaller; since then the lake association has put in a seawall to stop any further damage to the island. They are also responsible for the lake in terms of lake access, water quality, and weed control.
Runyan Lake, Inc. also hosts several events. Some of these are cookouts (premium steaks and full lobsters), rock concerts, and fireworks on the 4th of July. At these events, there is typically live music or a DJ, portable toilets, island lighting, and a real sense of community for those who attend.
Looking for Homes for Sale on Runyan Lake?
Homes for sale on Runyan Lake can range in price from the mid-200s all the way to the millions. Because Walnut Shores is a dirt road with smaller lots, it tends to deliver a little more value for the entry-level water-front buyer. South of the lake has some new high caliber homes on larger lots for those with a bigger budget.
This a video from the 2017 Lobster and Filet Mignon cookout that was on the island maintained by the Runyan Lake Association. This cookout is arranged by the Runyan Lake Social Committee and provides the lake residents and their friends and family with an amazing night.
At this cookout, dinner is served between 6:00 – 8:00 PM with the choice of either lobster or steak. A DJ is on the island from 8:00 PM until Midnight after dinner has been served. Like other island events, there is lighting and portable toilets provided for convenience. A float plane did fly by and land on the lake before taking off again.
