An Aerial View of Big Sable Point
Breathtaking, isn’t it? This aerial photo highlights the area of land known as Big Sable Point, which includes Hamlin Lake, Ludington State Park, the Ludington harbor, and miles of gorgeous fresh water coast. It’s such a beautiful playground for all to enjoy!
Below, we have divided the overall image into sections which include details about that specific section of the aerial photo. The number on the individual section matches the number on the image at the top of this page.
Big Sable River
Indian Pete Bayou
Indian Pete Bayou is located on Upper Hamlin Lake.
The Narrows is where the larger areas of Upper Hamlin Lake and Lower Hamlin Lake are connected by a narrowed waterway.
Located on Lower Hamlin Lake, the North Bayou is the largest of the lake’s many bayous.
On Lower Hamlin Lake, the Middle Bayou is (obviously) in the middle, between the South and North Bayous.
The South Bayou is near the southern end of Lower Hamlin Lake. The South Bayou Park has a free boat launch, but larger boats may not be able to fit under the South Bayou bridge, so be sure to investigate before launching!
Lincoln Lake is a widened of the Lincoln River waterway. Cartier Park overlooks the lake, and the bridge by Epworth Heights passes over the river.
The Ludington Harbor
The Ludington Harbor is actually part of Pere Marquette Lake, which is a widened body of water where the Pere Marquette River empties into Lake Michigan. The S. S. Badger carferry dock is located here.
