Tucked in the Lower Peninsula, Torch Lake is considered Michigan's second largest lake covering 19,000 acres. A two-mile-long sandbar divides it from Lake Michigan and serves as a gathering spot for a party crowd. The clear, blue water, natural setting, and surrounding villages make this an attractive Midwest travel destination.
