Distance one way is approx. 190miles The main freeways are well paved and travel fast.Posted 70 mph. Travelled at 85 mph to 100 mph. on I-275 The fun comes in when you hop on route #12 at the Saline exit. It is a two lane road, with passing lanes periodiclly, that has great twists and turns the entire route. There is a Church on the North side of route #12 which has a plaque and stones brought from Ireland in rememberance of those who died in the potato famine and those that came to th U.S.A. When you get on route #49, it also is a great two laner that has great country side with alot of the road tree lined. Giving you a run through a canopy. On route #49 you will pass through three or four small towns in Michigan. The last is Camden, which has a small population of Amish that you may pass on the road.(Watch out for 'Horse Apples'0 The Amish can be seen in the town of Freemont Indiana selling their wares.Once at the lake there is a public beach on the east side of the lake. The lake starts out shallow but has three springs that feed it. The deepest is over one hundred feet in depth. Fishing is great and there is the Clear Lake Marina, on the west side, that does rent jet skis when rerquested ahead of time. If you care to go into town, go west on route 120 to Freemont for good dining and small town fun.If you need to return to Michigan quickly, take I-69, west of the lake and Freemont, North to I-94. The same milage but better travel time. Enjoy
