Lake Charlevoix Mooring Spots
Want protection from wind? Jump into one of many calm bays including Oyster Bay, Horton Bay, Loeb Bay, or tuck in behind Depot Beach for more protection from the Westerly’s. These bays are great for swimming because the water temperature is always a touch warmer than the main body of the lake.
But warmer water still awaits in the South Arm of the Lake. Tuck in behind Holy Island for protection from the wind and the warmest water to be found on Lake Charlevoix.
