Lakefront living on one of the clearest bodies of water in Southwest Michigan, with EXCELLENT FISHING! Panfish, Bass, Walleye?.

The site condominium units around the lake of Emerald Lake Estates offer great opportunity to build a dream home on one of the clearest, and best fishing bodies of water in Southwest Michigan. It is a no wake lake, so there are no speed boats or wave runners to contend with on this lake if you are a Angler looking for that trophy, or some pan fish for the family dinner; or just looking for that evening, or weekend pontoon ride in the hot summer months to enjoy family and friends.
