Bay Township Charlevoix County

Bay Township is located in Charlevoix County between Lake Charlevoix and Walloon Lake within an imaginary triangle formed by the cities of Boyne City, Charlevoix, and Petoskey.

Within Bay Township there are 3.4 square miles of surface water area, and 15.5 square miles of land surface area. Bay Township is rural and striking in it’s natural beauty, with extensive environmental resources including: extensive upland hardwood and coniferous forests; one of Michigan’s largest and most well-know lakes–Lake Charlevoix; and one of Michigan’s deepest, most pristine inland lakes–Walloon Lake; as well as diverse wildlife habitat; rolling hills and meadows; wetlands; and productive farmland. These natural resources contribute to a magnificent, mostly rural setting for people to live, work, and recreate within the Township. The close proximity of Bay Township to Lake Michigan, and the extensive shorelines of both Lake Charlevoix (2.25 miles) and Walloon Lake (7.5 miles) within township boundaries are natural attractions to those who enjoy water-based recreation, and seasonal or permanent residence.
