Houghton Lake is an unincorporated community in Roscommon Township, Roscommon County in the U.S. Escape the urban bustle at Grass River Natural Area and Bear River Valley Recreation Area. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Otsego Lake County Park and River Road Scenic Byway. Venture out of the city with trips to North Western State Trail (in Petoskey), Thorne Swift Nature Preserve (in Harbor Springs) and Glacial Hills Pathway and Natural Area (in Bellaire). The adventure continues: hit the slopes at Hanson Hills Recreation Area, tee off at Pineview Highlands Golf Course, glide through natural beauty at Cross Country Ski Headquarters, and paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour.
