Located just about 30 miles South of the Macinac bridge, Mullett Lake is one of Michigans most beautiful Inland lakes. With over 45 miles of channels and lakes connected together, boating is a popular recreation on this lake. From Temple Town cabins you can do a boat trip to Cheboyan and go through the locks. From there you can venture out to Macinac island, if you have a big enough boat. Or you can stay along the lakes shoreline, and head to Macinac City.
If you choose to head out through the Indian River channel, you can head out to Burt Lake, or if really adventurous you can go through Burt Lake and head out to Crooked Lake. The boating possibilities are endless on this chain of lakes! If you are not a boater, the fishing in Mullet Lake is FABULOUS with some very famous fish stories! One of my favorites is about the guy that pulled a 7 foot 200 plus pound Sturgeon fish through an ice hole while ice fishing back in the 70's. Pictures can be seen at Breakers Bar which is a 10 minute boat ride across Mullet Lake over to Topinabee.
The outdoor recreation is endless in this part of Michigan. From water skiing, water boarding, jet skiing to just lounging on the beach, Indian River offers one of the top vacation spots in Michigan. It is centrally located with Mackinaw City less than 30 minutes away, Cheboygan less than 30 minutes away, and beautiful Petosky less than 40 minutes away. And while visiting Indian River, be sure to visit the beautiful Cross In The Woods. Take in a Sunday mass while here, or just take a walk through the grounds and view the Gigantic Shrine!
