Torch Lake was ranked as “the third most beautiful lake in the world” by National Geographic.

Within thirty minutes to an hour from common destinations of Traverse City, Charlevoix, Gaylord and Petoskey, it is Michigan’s longest inland lake at 18 miles long, and covers an area of 29 square miles! One of the things that makes this lake so unusual is its’ amazingly beautiful color. It is a mixture of light green, blue and turquoise -- very similar to colors seen in the Caribbean.
