Notes:

Gull Lake is a desirable sailing lake located in Kalamazoo and Barry Counties in Southwest Michigan. The lake is approximately 2 miles from the town of Richland, midway between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. The lake is dam-controlled and is roughly one mile wide by six miles long with exceptionally clear water. It is deep nearly everywhere except for the presence of two sunken islands in the middle of the lake (approximately 20 feet underwater). Only 30% of the lake contains shoal areas of shallower depth (MDNR 1991). Expensive homes ring the entire lake including the huge (former) estate of cereal tycoon W.K. Kellogg (now open for tours).

 

The launch site at Praireville Township Park on the northern tip of the lake (see following Google map) is nice but it will cost you $10 to enter.  As this is not a MDNR launch, the Michigan Recreation Passport does not work here. This park has paved parking for 70 boat trailers, a four-lane launch ramp with docks & beach, swim area, picnic tables, playground, and flush toilets. Boat set-up is located long the ramp access driveway. Athough no limiting overhead obstructions were noted as of June 2016, there is tree limb encroachment in the boat set-up area.

 

A convince store is located across the street. Two marinas are located on the south end of the lake as well as a drive-up ice cream shop. There is another free, road terminus launch site located at the end of Base Line road on the N.E. side of the lake but it really is only suitable for carriable boats as it has no pier and no parking (this is not a location for lauching boats from trailers). Sailboats of all kinds ply this large lake and you will see everything from the tiniest dinghy's to 25 ft. keelboat cruisers. It's unlikely you will be the only sailboat on the water here which adds to the fun. Summer weekends are crazy busy on this all-sports lake but weekdays are generally quiet and pleasant. Also note that because of its size, the waves and swell can build remarkably large on a windy day so don't get caught off guard while enjoying the view out there. 


This lake serves as the home waters for the Gull Lake Yacht Club and the Western Michigan University Sailing Team/Club. The GLYC hosts an extensive Sunfish regatta series in the Summer and in the winter months, ice boat racing can be found courtesy of the Gull Lake Ice Yacht Club. Also located in the area are Michigan State University's Kellogg Biological Station and Bird Sanctuary and the famous Gilmore Car Museum. A visit to the Gilmore museum is highly recommended for new visitors!
