    Directions Those of you coming from Minnesota and Wisconsin, should take advantage of the new cross-lake Michigan ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon; Muskegon is 15 miles South of White lake. For more information on this ferry please check

    WLYC is located in Whitehall Michigan. From the south: Take US 31 to the White Lake Drive exit (13 miles north of I-96 and US 31 intersection in Muskegon, MI). Turn right (west) onto White Lake Drive (from either US 31 north or south ) for approx 5 miles until you dead-end at White Lake. Turn left and go approx 3 miles to a stop sign. Turn right on to South Shore Drive. In approx. 3 miles you will see WLYC on your right and the White Lake Golf Club on your left. If you continue approx 1/2 mile to a stop sign, turn right and there is a public boat launch. It is a little easier to launch there than at the WLYC, which has a fairly steep hill to back down with your boat. We will provide support for launching at both sites.
