Houghton Lake is an unincorporated community in Roscommon Township, Roscommon County in the U.S. Get out of town with these interesting Houghton Lake side-trips: Fishtown (in Leland), Michigan Fireman's Memorial (in Roscommon) and Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore & Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Stearns Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cross In The Woods National Shrine, cool off at Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark, and admire all the interesting features of Dow Diamond.
