Welcome to the website of the Little Platte Lake Association!
A quiet lake of 805 acres, Little Platte Lake is located in Benzie County, Michigan. The Little Platte Lake Association was formed in 2003 as a charitable non-profit with the the sole mission of preserving the lake and its environs. Membership in LPLA sustains that mission.
Through this website the LPLA Board provides information to our members and to the general public concerning both the lake and the Association. In that regard we had our lake surveyed and determined that along with a healthy variety of native aquatic plants, we have a particularly nasty, invasive one: Eurasian Water Milfoil. For more information about milfoil check out our Aquatic Invasives page, catch up through the 2019 LPLA newsletter and review the Annual Meeting Minutes.
On a similar note, turnout was minimal this past spring for the removal of an aggressive land-based invasive plant, garlic mustard. As LPLA supports the preservation and conservation of native species in our area, please consider attending next year’s garlic mustard pull (watch for notice on this website, and signs along Deadstream Rd). Also, LPLA believes it is through the efforts of all citizens to take action in their own backyards and properties to stop the introduction and spread of invasive species. You can learn more from the Michigan DNR, starting here: Prevent the Spread of Invasive Species. Love Your Native Michigan!
