Gun Lake is an All Sports Lake with 2680 acres offering activities such as boating, water skiing, tubing, sailing, swimming, kayaking, jet skiing, and great fishing.
If you like to fish here are some great features about the fishing opportunities at Gun Lake- An abundant bass fishery, both smallmouth and largemouth. Numerous perch provide steady action throughout the year. Featured Species: Northern Pike, Walleye, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass and Bluegill. WE will expect an invite to the cookout after your catch!
However if you are not a water activity kind of person, there is lots for you to do on land! Some of the popular choices are hiking, biking and snowmobile trails, hunting in the Yankee Spring Recreational Area.
But WAIT there is more!
Free Trolley Rides – The “Trolley By The Lake” has become an annual event. This year the “Trolley By The Lake” will run on Saturday nights from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm from May 28th to August 13th.. The open air Trolley ride is free! The trolley will run from Yankee Springs State Park to Orangeville’s Gun River Inn. The trolley will make 10 stops along the route. This is an excellent way to get to know your way around the lake!
Gun Lake makes a great staycation for the locals or a wonderful retreat for people visiting West Michigan.
