The Best Ways to Spend a Day Out on Gun Lake, MI

As temperatures continue to climb, there’s nothing better than packing your bags and heading out on a sunshine-filled vacation. As one of the best family resorts, Bay Pointe has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing escape from everyday life. Situated on the south shore of Gun Lake, MI, our resort is the ideal place to call home if you’re looking to spend some time out on the water. After checking into your cozy room, head out on the tranquil waters for a bit of fun.

What to Do on Your Lake Day

Our Michigan resort features 375 feet of Gun Lake frontage, which means you are just steps away from the water. Dip your toes in the water or dive off the docks. There’s even more fun to be had when you venture out onto the lake.

  • There are plenty of ways to entertain your group when renting a pontoon boat. We offer pontoon rentals to our guests from local, family-owned marinas. Your full-day rental goes from morning until sunset, which means more than enough time to explore Gun Lake.
  • Another great option is kayaking or canoeing around the lake. Gun Lake Boat Rentals offers both kayak and canoe rentals. You can rent for just an hour or up to an entire week. Browse their rentals and fill out their rental form to secure your vessel.
  • See who can reel in the day’s biggest catch on a fishing excursion. You’ll have the best luck casting into shallow waters from the shore or a pier during the summer months. Yankee Springs Recreation Area is known for its pier and on-shore fishing locations. Stop by Gillett’s Bait & Hardware or Ken’s Sports Shop to stock up on your fishing gear. You can also purchase your fishing license at these spots.
  • If you’re visiting us during the summer and are 21 or older, you need to stop by Gun Lake Live. Taking place every Wednesday from Memorial Day to Labor Day at the Lakefront Pavilion, you can listen to fantastic live music from the water or lawn.
