Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area

Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area is not known for its hiking trails. There’s just the one—an out-and-back connecting the campground with the beach on Pontiac Lake.

But this 3.6-mile route takes you through some of the most beautiful forest in the area. With several steep hills, the rugged trail makes you work a little, which is great during the hottest days of summer, when you can cool off with a mid-hike swim in Pontiac Lake."
