Welcome to Our Lake

raab-04Gravel Lake is located in Lawton, Michigan in the Southwestern part of the state. Our Lake is 296 acres, spring fed from the main body as well as the channel, has an outlet (spillway) on Idle Ease beach which feeds Big Fish Lake and an inlet from a swamp named Strawberry Lake just behind the northern end of Idle Ease beach. Our goal is to keep our community informed with news and events which affect our lake and to share in the rich history of Gravel Lake; past, present and future. Please let us know what you’d like to see on this site.
