Ernest Hemingway spent his boyhood summers on Walloon Lake, his father built their cottage in the early 1900’s. Those days led him to write:

“It’s the great northern air. Absolutely the best trout fishing in the country. No exaggeration. Fine country. Good color, good northern atmosphere, absolute freedom”.

– Ernest Hemingway 

We couldn’t agree more with that statement! Walloon Lake as a whole encompasses the essence of Northern Michigan.
