More Information on Popular Lakes
When first considering lakefront homes in Fenton, most people think of Lake Fenton. This lake is often considered the most desirable lake in the Fenton, Michigan area for several reasons. An obvious reason would be its size; Lake Fenton is the largest lake in Genesee County and measures approximately 845 acres. Lake Fenton also has a very convenient location close to US-23 and is only a few minutes from I-75.
Because of its strategic location, it is a great place to live for commuters who work south of Fenton in Clarkston, Waterford, and the other Metro Detroit communities.

Loon Lake & Crane
Lake Fenton and Linden also offer many other all sports lakes such as Loon Lake. Loon lake has a great location, but it is a shallow lake and not great for wake boarding. Right on the other side of Jennings Rd is Crane Lake. Crane Lake is also an all sports lake, but it is smaller than even Loon Lake. When buying waterfront homes on Loon or Crane Lake, you can get more house for your money because of the smaller size of the lakes, but still get to enjoy beautiful lake views and calming water sounds throughout the year.
Lobdell Lake & Bennett Lake
The Lobdell Lake chain would be a great choice. Most of the Lobdell Lake chain is 7-12 minutes from the expressway and other neighborhood conveniences and amenities. Lobdell Lake measures about 538 acres, and going under the bridge brings you to Bennet Lake, where you can weave through the marsh to get to the beautiful and under-developed Lake Hoisington. These lakes have gorgeous natural shapes that provide incredible shoreline views. Waterfront homes and lots with mature tree coverage for privacy can be found on any of these lakes, where you can have a peaceful waterfront lifestyle.
Silver Lake & Marl Lake
If you want to live on a different lake in Fenton, Silver Lake is also a great option. It is nice in size and connects to all sports Marl Lake. What makes Silver Lake and Marl Lake great is that they do not have a public access! The private lakes allow for a strong lake community and fewer disturbances. Some other benefits of Silver Lake is that it is very deep and clean. There is a public park on Silver Lake where spectators can sometimes catch a glimpse of the Silver Lake ski team doing tricks on the water.

If you are looking for a little more value in your home, Lake Ponemah is the place to go!
