Sugarloaf Lake

Sugarloaf Lake in Portage, just south of Kalamazoo, is a reasonably large lake for paddling and has a substantial amount of undeveloped shoreline (protected as part of the Gourdneck State Game Area).  The southwest shore does have several houses.  A public boat launch, off Shaver Road, provides access and parking.

A winding channel connects to Little Sugarloaf Lake.  Little Sugarloaf appears more developed, with homes and docks along one shore and US-131 visible along the other shore.
