Fishing off the west side of the peninsula
The Long Lake Peninsula is a pleasant and quiet private community of about 195 homes; a great place to live, raise children, or retire. We are only 12 minutes from downtown Traverse City, as well as just a few miles from the Interlochen Center for the Arts, and 30 minutes from Lake Michigan.
A feature that distinguishes us from other communities is the fact that there is only one road onto Long Lake Peninsula. Thus, traffic is slowed and residents are able to enjoy walking, jogging, biking, rollerblading, and even cross country skiing.
This online resource is designed to help you get to know more about the neighborhood and the people who live here.
Starting August 21, 2017, the boat launch at Crescent Shores will be closed for new launch construction. New launch to be completed in approximately 30 days. Boaters using Long Lake will be looking for another launch to use. We are a private organization and the LLPA boat launch is only for members, guests and renters. Please DO NOT lend your key to anyone.
Please let the local boat marina’s that put boats in and out of the lake that the key must be used only for LLPA customers.
Also, be VERY vigilant about replacing the chain so it is tight across the launch so others cannot use it without their own key.
To keep everyone safe we want to remind you the speed limit from the entrance to the top of the hill at the narrows is 15 mph. It is curvy and narrow. The rest of the peninsula is 20 mph.
Please be considerate of your neighbor; walk facing traffic and stay to one side. SLOW DOWN when driving. People driving too fast remains one of the biggest complaints here…and we are growing in numbers and residents.
Rules of the road:
- Keep safe. Always walk facing traffic. This gives you the best chance to see cars approaching you and drivers can be sure you see them.
- Please teach your children to walk on the correct side, also.
- When cycling, stay on the right, with the traffic
- Thank you for driving gently and cautiously and walking safely.
Pedestrian and bicycle safety tips
The returnable can/bottle recycle program is now in it’s 4th year of service. The recycle can is placed at the front entrance with a sign on it. Just place your returnable cans/bottles into the can. A volunteer checks the container twice a week, returns any cans/bottles in the container and turns the money over to Jennifer Abel, LLPA vice-president.
The money we collect this year will be used to enhance our dredging fund for the boat launch. We collect about an average of $40-$50/week.
