This place is an unsung beauty. Not many people on it at all. Very quiet but very large! It's not really a true lake, but a dammed off river. Still, LOVELY.

After eating at the Grill House we went downtown Allegan & was impressed with the town & the park that was clean & comfortable. The sunset was absolutely breathtaking.

Lake Allegan has homes on it and boat docks and pontoon boats and nothing else. There is no reason to go there unless you are visiting relatives.

Located in aheavy forested area caused by the damming of the river I believe. Great fishing I am told. YOu can drive around the Lake liked all the coves and trees surrounding it.
