 A Big Thank You to Wil swiecki!

After serving for 40 years as our President, this year Wilfred Swiecki stepped down  from the role.  See the article in the  Traverse City Record Eagle. More than any individual, Wil is responsible for the current good status of the lake. Thanks!


Here's some drone footage of Platte Lake!


  • Lake Surface Temperature:
    39.4 as of December 6, 2021
  • Flow:
    Appx 3.5 million gallons flow in from the Upper Platte River
  • Depth:
    95 ft maximum, 24 ft average


Since our efforts began in 1978, we’ve seen a 12 foot increase in depth clarity.
