The smallest lake, Deer Lake, has no structures or land change on its shores. Mary's and Twin Lake, the largest, have a half dozen structures on their edges. Thompson has one cabin on its south shore. The rest of the shorelines are wild and a joy to view up close while casually paddling. These natural shorelines are increasingly rare not only in Michigan but across the country.
I am hosting Kayak-a-lake-a-day during the last weekend in April (2008). During this time of year, there are usually no other crafts on the lakes and the water is at its highest level. This allows cruising as close to the wild shores as possible.
Vehicles should be able to traverse rugged roads especially driving to Deer Lake. My Ford Windstar Van can get to the lake but expect tree branches to "brush off the dust" as you motor along.
