Michigan is known for its fantastic inland lakes. Who doesn’t love a summer getaway at a spot light Higgins Lake or Torch Lake?

So, what’s the best inland lake in Northern Michigan?

The folks at MLive polled a collection of Michiganders about their favorite inland lake in Northern Michigan, and the winner was Sage Lake.

“Sage Lake is a 785-acre all sports lake in Ogemaw County, north of M-55, 16 miles east of West Branch and 22 miles west of Tawas City,” Robin Miner-Swartz, editor of the Sage Lake Association newsletter, told MLive.

I’ve personally never been to Sage Lake, but I have a good friend who grew up in the West Branch area and know it’s a beautiful area.
