Are there any spots in Lake Charlevoix that are nice hang outs with lots of boats like the "sand bar" at Torch? I really like the shallow spot at Round Lake, but very limited to a number of boats---but it's a beautiful spot to hang out. Also, I have to admit the city launch ramp at Charlevoix is a great launch!
I also like Marion/Power Island in Grand Traverse Bay. Never been there until I did the Nothern Michigan Fun Run from Charleviox into GTB, North Point, Suttons Bay, TC, and then breaking for lunch at Marion/Power Island. I had so much fun running with everyone. It was a gorgeous day! I have really grown to love all the water ways up north. It makes boating down here seem kinda dull---that is for sure!
