Live Views from Houghton Lake Now Available 24/7

WEST MICHIGAN, MI – Picturing yourself in West Michigan has never been easier, with the West Michigan Live Camera Gallery from the West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA). Whether you’re planning a vacation and want to preview conditions at your destination, or want to travel around the state without leaving home, you’ll find live feeds of what’s happening right now across the West Michigan area.

WMTA is excited to announce another new live camera stream in their online gallery, this one from Houghton Lake, located in Roscommon County. The live stream may be found here:

The Houghton Lake Area Tourism Bureau has installed this live camera, overlooking their namesake lake. Houghton Lake is Michigan’s largest inland lake, covering 22,000 acres. 

Houghton Lake is a great destination if you’re looking for a beach day: with dozens of resorts, motels, and lodges located right on the water, and many more public beaches and picnic areas, you will have your pick of the right beach for you. There are two great public beaches that include swimming, children toys, barbecue pits, and sheltered picnic areas.

The lake also offers great fishing possibilities for walleye, pike, bass, and bluegill. There are seven access sites strategically located around the lake. 

Roscommon County and Houghton Lake offer activities for the whole family, whether you love to hike and bike, golf and shop, or canoe and swim. Visitors will find four seasons of fun, fishing, fireworks, and festivals. Michigan’s “Other Great Lakes” – Houghton Lake, Higgins Lake, and Lake St. Helen will delight you with their natural beauty, wildlife viewing, and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. All three lakes are a sportsman’s fishing and boating paradise. 

“The Live Camera Gallery is a great way to virtually travel around West Michigan without leaving your computer or phone,” says Dan Sippel, executive director of the West Michigan Tourist Association. “We’re excited for the opportunities that it gives to locations, for them to show off what’s happening in real time around the area. Travelers or people living in the area can virtually explore different areas of West Michigan that they may not otherwise have a chance to visit.”

Camera feeds will continue to be added to the gallery moving forward, expanding the available views of the West Michigan area. Current camera feeds range from Mackinac Island to Muskegon to Drummond Island, and beyond.
