Huron River chain of lakes
Hamburg & other locations
This eight-mile connection has nine lakes: Big Portage, Little Portage, Baseline, Zukey, Strawberry, Whitewood, Gallagher, Ore, and Tamarack. Running from Washtenaw County to Livingston County, the lakes are connected by canals; if you’re feeling adventurous, you can rent a kayak and make your way through all of them in one day. Otherwise, post up on the banks of Strawberry Lake or dock your boat at Zukey Lake Tavern and enjoy lunch on the lakefront.
