There are numerous road-end access points to Lake Michigan and West Grand Traverse Bay. Glen Lake, Lake Leelanau, and the Leland River have several access points as well. North Bar Lake, Cedar Lake and Kehl Lake each have one public access. Some access points have facilities for launching small watercraft. Those with canoes and small crafts can gain access at county road ends, which are open to the public. Many launch sites double as venues for a picnic, quick swim
or even lounging with a book. Here is a list of boat launch
