Recreation

Swimming
The inviting clear waters of Hubbard lake
won't disappoint your Michigan vacation  
water activities. You'll find our lake front
getaway, with no muck or weeds, consisting
of pebbles and sand, turning into an all hard
sand bottom 25 feet from shore. Making it
even more swimmer friendly there are no
drop offs, just shallow water making slow
gradual depth changes the further out from
shore.

Boating
Boaters, you'll have plenty of miles of
shoreline to explore along the picturesque
landscape of Hubbard Lake. While exploring
take time to anchor at one of the several sand
bars to, swim, play, relax....you'll no what to
do! Hungry, motor over to the east bay and
tie up to the dock at Churchill Point restaurant
for dinning.
Several bays on the lake give more
opportunities for calmer water to water
skiers, jet skiers, tubers and fishermen.

Michigan Fishing
Fishing on the lake can be very good for
perch, walleye, smallmouth bass depending
on the time of year. Perch on Hubbard lake
gave name to the lake as a perch lake back in
the day. Than, it went through years of
declining perch catches to every ones
dismay.
Although, now the lake is starting to give rise
in perch catches again, the real treat on this
lake is the small mouth bass. Spring, summer
or fall they are the go to fish for consistent
action. They're a whole Lotta fun.
Other species of fish that can be caught on a
ventures fishing getaway on Hubbard Lake,
Michigan are pike, sunfish, rainbow trout,
whitefish, musky and catfish.

Hunting
Deer hunting and small game hunting
represent a very special time of year here.
The seasonal color changes to embrace, the
undisturbed natural beauty of the forest to sit
and ponder, the peacefulness of uninhabited
human spaces!
It's a quiet time of year around here to do a
Michigan Getaway, from it all! Thousands of
acres of federal land to hunt with very good
deer, turkey  and small game populations.

Golfing Getaway
Golf fans I'd be amiss if I did not give it some
attention. There are several nearby golf
courses within 30 minutes. The
White Pine
National Golf Club is one. Mind you I am not a
golfer, but it has national in its title, so it
might be worthy to check out, aside its only
15 minutes away.
Back Nine golf course, I tried it. Why, because
the name says it all. Great 9 hole beginners
course where I felt right at
home.....comfortable. Uninhibited
environment, move along at your
pace......nice place to get the kids and wife in
golf without embarrassing anyone!
