This lake is long and narrow - TWICE as long as its northern counterpart. Take a boat rental from PlayNorth Watersports on South Lake Leelanau and go tubing on this long lake!

The Clay Cliffs Natural Area
This is one of our favorite scenic, secluded places to explore by paddleboard and jet ski. The towering, fragile bluffs of Clay Cliffs are not accessible by hiking and hikers can only view from the overlook at a safe distance. BUT! You can get an enviable up close view by boat or paddle board. Clay Cliffs is protected by the Leelanau Conservancy in partnership with Leland Township. Plan your trip with help from The Leelanau Conservancy Facebook Page and learn more about Clay Cliffs on the Leelanau Conservancy website. This natural area features stunning panoramic views and 1,700 feet of shoreline on both Lake Leelanau and Lake Michigan. Hikers and cyclists, check out the Clay Cliffs Trail Loop!
