Wolverine Lake Relocation
When relocating to Wolverine Lake you have to keep in mind that you are moving to a lake community. Wolverine Lake Michigan is just a small community. It has not central downtown or big shopping area. It's whole focus is the lake. It is not much different than Lake Angelus in that respect. A lake community in Oakland County is going to have a wide variety of homes. It is not going to have similar subdivision type of homes. The styles and sizes of homes are going to vary widely.
Why home buyers like homes in the community is because they are not too far off the beaten path. You can get to a freeway fairly quickly. If you have ever driven the lakes area in Oakland County you will know that you have to curve around many lakes. Roads dead end at lakes and you have to either go right or left. Living on Wolverine Lake will cut out some of your drive time.
The local residents' concern for the lake and the desire to maintain control of it led to the formation of the Consolidated Subdivision of Wolverine Lake. Eight separate subdivision associations joined together in the early 1940s to form a more viable and powerful political force that has helped make the community what it is today. Of the years surrounding communities tried to incorporate or annex Wolverine Lake which finally led the residents to incorporate as a home rule Village in 1954.
The lake itself is a 265 acre all-sports lake. Wolverine Lake was created in the 1920s from six small lakes; Spring, Mayie, Pork Barrel, Bickling, Taylor and Bradley, all surrounded by marsh land. Every year on July 3, the village holds "Tiki night" and puts on a firework display in the middle of the lake. All of the waterfront properties place Tiki torches 6–8 feet apart across the entire water line. They estimate about 8,000 people come to the fireworks.
The community is very small and is only 1.69 square miles in size. It is a safe community. If you are looking for a large community, or a community full of subdivisions with similar style homes then relocating to Wolverine Lake MI is probably not for you.
