Welcome to White Lake

White Lake Township Web site
SEMCOG Profile

Known as a “Four Seasons Playground,” White Lake Township  provides some of the best recreational areas in the state. Located in the heart of Oakland County, this 37-square mile community features over 6,000 acres of parkland, a downhill ski resort, two world-class golf courses and neighborhoods in picturesque lakefront and country settings.

Community parks, state recreation areas and a metropark feature a variety of activities such as cross country skiing, horseback riding, swimming, boating, fishing and hiking. In addition, White Lake Oaks boasts a sprawling 18-hole golf course that won a 2007 Oakland Press readers choice award.

While primarily characterized by its country charm and recreational amenities, the township is bisected by M-59, which serves as a hub of expanding commercial development.
