  • Excellent parks and awesome beaches on Lake Michigan
  • A safe, small town atmosphere
  • Taxes and utility rates are some of the lowest in Southwestern Michigan

Please come and visit during the festivals or just spend a day (and sunset) on beautiful Lake Michigan! Click here for more details.


2019 Taxes Summer taxes can continue to be paid at the Township. Please contact Bob Clark at our office to get updated payment information including any penalty or interest that was applied. Winter taxes are due on or before February 14th to avoid interest and penalties.

Holiday Village this year will be held December 14th from 3:00 to 6:00 in downtown Bridgman. The pet parade starts at Paws to Wash at 3:00, sleigh rides will be available in town, children's cookie decorating, visit with Mr and Mrs Claus, live nativity, crafts for kids, caroling, face painting, tree lighting, and more! Come and join the holiday fun!

Lake Township Park - The main gates and park are now closed for the season but the "off season" parking lot is available for year around use! The lot located just north of the main gates has a pedestrian gate to allow access all year long. We intend to develop some cross country ski trails in the park this winter depending on weather. Reservations are filling up for the 2020 pavilion rentals.

Water Department Testing. Please check out our latest water testing results for PFAS on the Water page or by clicking on this link.

Assessment information online has been enhanced to include more detail on property information including building square footage, utility information, age of dwellings, building floor plan sketches, and other important information. Please see the Assessors page for more information or click on the link on the right side of this page to be directed to the site.

Curbside Recycling - The free recycling program available to Lake Township residents continues to grow. If you want to be part of this great program saving tons of refuse ending up in our landfills, give us and call and we'd be happy to get you started.
