My 3rd great grandfather was postmaster and innskeeper there in the 1800,s. William G. Stone. Says Elizabeth Sumner
Five Lakes in an unincorporated town with only a few buildings left, located in central Lapeer County Mi. You can find it on older road maps but it's no longer listed on recent state road maps. Stop in at Five lakes grocery and talk to the lady there, she can tell you all about the history of this once booming lumber town. The 7,000 +/- acre
Lapeer State Game Area is adjacent and offers great hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing and nature study/photography. 6-7 miles away is the town of Lapeer which is the county seat and with 8,000 people, the largest town in the county.

Five Lakes lake itself is complete surrounded by private land with no public access. Beautiful cedar swamps with rare plants and crystal clear water can best describe the immediate area. Also nearby is the Polly Ann rail trail which starts in Kings Mill and travels to Orion Twp. in Oakland County. Says Jeff G
