About Our Lakes


We are located in Paw Paw Township, Van Buren County, Michigan.  The climate and surrounding fertile soils put us in the heart of some of the best fruit-bearing orchards in the country. This area is also known for its established and popular wineries.   Our lake community consists of Three Mile Lake and Little Three Mile Lake, which are joined by a limited-access channel.  

Three Mile Lake is an all-sports lake, but it has boating restrictions unique to only a few lakes in the state of Michigan.  Little Three Mile Lake has restrictions regarding high-speed boating and the towing of skiers(tubing etc).*  

The combined acreage of both lakes totals 176 navigable acres and approximately 100 acres of pristine wetlands, which are the home for many species of wildlife.

The area surrounding the lakes is rural, but convenient services are not far away.  We are located three miles from the village of Paw Paw, which is the county seat, and the cities of Kalamazoo and Portage are a quick 20-minute drive.

*** VISITING OR CONSIDERING MOVING TO OUR LAKE? – PLEASE REVIEW THE SPECIAL BOATING RULES ENACTED BY THE DNR***
