Lake - Garfield Township, Michigan
Lake, (sometimes referred to as "Lake Station"), is located at the southwestern tip of Clare County in the middle of the "lakes" section there. It is goverened by Garfield Township. It was so named because it lies between Crooked and Perch Lakes. This town is supported primarily by tourism associated with the lakes. It also plays a role in winter ice fishing and its location on the Pere Marquette Rails-to-Trails State Park is a favorite for snowmobilers.
This town was first established as Lake Station in 1877 when the Pere Marquette Railroad came through and built a station here. In 1909, the name was shortened to "Lake" by the Township. The town still retains some railroad-like atmosphere, with a bright red caboose parked along side of the refurbished depot.
