Well known for quality walleye fishing, Manistique Lake is a 10,100-acre lake in the eastern part of the upper Michigan peninsula, at Lakefield. There are actually three lakes here - Big Manistique Lake, North Manistique Lake and South Manistique Lake. On this page we are focusing on Big Manistique Lake. It has 23 miles of shoreline and provides an ideal getaway for swimming, boating, fishing and camping. Fishing enthusiasts will be happy to know they have numerous species of fish to pursue including walleye, trout, sunfish, muskie, bass, perch and northern pike. Peak seasons are spring/summer, and ice fishing in winter once there is safe ice. Campgrounds with RV hookups are scattered around the lake and numerous lodging choices are available on the water. Access to the shoreline for fishing from the bank is available at parks, campgrounds, boat launch ramps and other public areas. Kayaks and canoes need watch the weather closely for wind and storms as the lake is wide and can get very rough. Larger pleasure and fishing boats should keep an eye out for the same reasons.
