Wolverine Lake was created in the 1920s through a private damming and inundation project funded by local dentist and developer Howard Stuart. Created from six small lakes, a critical early step in creating the lake involved the construction of the nearby dam, which began in 1919. The dam allowed water levels to rise eight feet in the marsh surrounding Spring, Mayze, Pork Barrel, Bicking, Taylor, and Bradley Lakes, thus uniting them. Learn more in our 'About' section.
Welcome to the Village of Wolverine Lake, where community is strong and your neighbors greet you by name. We invite you to stroll along the shore, learn to ice fish, jog along our quiet streets, and enjoy the place we call home. Our lake is known for its active waterfront lifestyle. Summer brings fireworks and cookouts; winter activities include ice skating, fishing, snowmobiling and snuggling around a warm bonfire.
Walking 150 minutes a week can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by nearly 60 percent -- which means that walking is a lifesaver. The perfect place for you to stroll is Wolverine Lake's Clara Miller park, which is a scenic 13 1/2 acres located off of Benstein Road. Hours are 7:00 a.m. to a half hour after dusk. Restrooms are open only during the summer months. The pavilion is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
