Torch Lake holds the distinction of Michigan’s longest inland lake (19 miles) and its second-largest inland lake (18,770 acres). Torch Lake is known for its incredibly beautiful and unique turquoise water, and its length makes it ideal for boating, tubing and jetskiing.
A hot spot during Northern Michigan Summers, the Torch Lake sandbar attracts boaters, locals, tourists, and party-people alike. Thousands visit the sandbar each summer to enjoy the company of others on their anchored boats in the shallow water playing games, grilling, and soaking up the sun. The white sand of the almost two-mile sandbar against the blue water makes for stunning vacation photos.
Torch Lake is a great location for boat and jetski rentals from TC Watersports!
