  • Dumont Lake lies in central Allegan County, southwestern Michigan, about 4 miles north of the City of Allegan. The lake is natural, having been formed during the Wisconsinan glacial stage (10,000 to 75,000 years ago). The 9-square-mile watershed contains the Big and Little Spectacle Lake, Wetmore Lake, and an unnamed stream. Dumont Creek is the major outlet, which flows southwest and joins Lake Allegan and the Kalamazoo River of Lake Michigan. The topography of the watershed is that of nearly flat to gently rolling hills made up of moderately well drained ground moraines and sandy outwash plains. The soils are classified as Chelsea-Ockley-Oshtemo associations, which are well to excessively drained sandy and loamy soils. The watershed is primarily used for agriculture with wetlands and scattered woodlots and residential homes. Dumont Lake is 215 acres in size and up to 50 feet deep (Figure 1). Shoal areas (less than 20 feet deep) account for only about 12% of the surface area of the lake. Aquatic vegetation is common and primarily made up of bladder-wort, Chara, and various pondweeds. The substrate is mostly made up of sand, marl, and organic material. Dumont Lake is a popular fishing and boating lake. Only about 40% of the shoreline is lined with cottages and homes, while wetlands and wooded areas make up the rest. Allegan County operates a public boat launch on the north side of the lake that can accommodate 15 vehicles with trailers. This Pano was taken at Dumont Lake Beach Park, located on the northeast shore of Dumont Lake, is 18.6 acres in size and is the perfect place for picnicking, swimming, boating, or fishing. It has 550 feet of beach on beautiful Dumont Lake, picnic tables, grills, a covered pavilion, a brand new playground, and modern restroom facilities. Dumont Lake Park also consists of a watercraft/boat launch facility, located across the lake from the picnic area at the end of 33rd Street. Most of the park amenities are ADA accessible. The watercraft/boat launch facility also has an ADA accessible fishing pier available.
