Blue Lake TownshipWest Michigan's most beautiful setting

Our township is six miles each side, and is on the northern tier of Muskegon townships, with Whitehall and Montague on the west, Holton on the east, and Dalton on the south, with Otto on the north in Oceana County. It is range 16 west, and township 12 north, and is named from a good-sized lake “Big Blue Lake” about a mile and a half long. The whole township drains into the White River, which crosses the northwest corner, and it is full of little lakes.


Blue Lake Township was organized in 1865, out of Dalton, and in 1870, Fruitland was formed of the same township. In 1873 this town by removals became almost disorganized and a new election for most of the offices was held on November 4, at Diedrich’s school house. Learn More
