Pontiac Lake Recreation Area Cabins

Pontiac Lake Cabins will be closed for the 2023 season due to electrical upgrade construction taking place in the park. 

  • Pontiac Lake Recreation Area features a mixture of marshes, ponds, forests, old farm fields and lakes that support a variety of wildlife and excellent hunting opportunities.

    The park features the longest beach in southeast Michigan at just over a 1/2 mile, hiking, biking and equestrian trails, a modern campground, a model airplane flying field, a rustic equestrian campground, an expansive picnic area, an off-leash (fenced) area for dogs and much more. The 11-mile mountain bike trail has been ranked as one of the "Top 100 Trails" in the United States and is considered one of the most technical trails in southeast Michigan.

    Blazing Trails operates the park's riding stable and offers guided and group horseback rides over scenic overlooks, pony rides and more. Pontiac Lake Horseman's Association maintains the equestrian trails.
