Squaw Lake homes are what I would call more normal homes. There are none of the old 600 - 800 square foot cottages that dot so many of the lakes in Oakland County. This lake does not seem to have been developed until the 1969's. Some of the waterfront homes sit up on a gentle hillside. The lake is like a small bowl. There are some homes that are flat with the lake. There is a mix of small & big homes. There are no old cottages on the lake. Here are some the basic features of the Squaw Lake houses.
The home styles range from split levels, tudors, colonials, cape cods, ranches, and contemporary homes. Like I said there are no small one or two bedroom cottages. Most of the lake homes have three to five bedrooms, one and a half baths to four and a half bathrooms. Squaw Lake waterfront homes range in size from 1200 square feet to over 4500 square feet. Some lake homes have septic systems, some are on sewers. It depends on where they are on the lake.
Homes were built between the years between 1960 to 2006. The homes have one to five car garages. Most homes have basements, some crawl and slab homes too. There are walkout and daylight basements. The homes are on wells or on community well. The home styles range from split levels, tudors, colonials, cape cods, ranches, and contemporary homes. I would call the homes....normal homes that you would find in any city or subdivision. Many of the lakefront homes sit on bigger lots. Some up to an acre and a half.
Squaw Lake is a public all sports lake that is 28 acres in size. There is a Michigan DNR launch on the south side of the lake off Drahner Road. It is a big DNR launch with 50 parking spots. Squaw Lake is part of the Stringy chain of lakes...It connects directly to Clear Lake and you really cannot tell where one lake starts or ends. There are no wake restrictions that I know of on Squaw Lake. The deepest spot on the lake is 48 feet deep. There are several other lakes in the chain.....Tan Lake, Spring Lake, Long Lake, Cedar Lake, and some consider Michelson part of the chain. The Stringy Chain of lakes adds up to 164 acres of lake in total. None of the lakes in the chain are very big. You can waterski, tube, wake board, and jet ski but many water sports enthusiasts will say the lakes are too small for them. For the occasional tuber or waterskier the lakes would be fine.
There are only single family residences on the lake. There are no condos or commercial properties on the lake. There is no state approved water ski course on the lake, no public beach, and no marina. The roads around the lake are both paved and gravel. The kids that live on the lake will go to the excellent Oxford School System.
The Stringy chain of lakes is fed from the north by Paint Creek and is part of the Clinton River watershed. There are some springs in the lakes too. There are no canals off the lakes though there are some canals that connect the lakes but they are very short.
There is a big DNR public launch on Squaw Lake. Compared to many other DNR Launches for the size of the lakes the Squaw Lake DNR Launch has 50 parking spots which is over sized compared to their ratio that they normally use. The residents of Stringy Lake are not happy with the size of the launch. There is a low culvert that limits or stops pontoons and speed boats from accessing all the lakes. Kayaks, canoes, row boats can get thru but not bigger boats. jet skis can get through however it is so shallow that you may ruin your jet ski because there are lots of pebbles and rocks that your jet ski will pick up and ruin the engine.
The lake is located south of Seymour Lake Road and west of M-24. The lake is about a mile from downtown Oxford and not to far north of Lake Orion.
