Established in 1998, the Sanford Lake Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that serves as a forum for property owners and interested community members to share concerns, implement improvements, and strengthen the community. Known by locals and tourists for its “up north” atmosphere without the “up north drive,” Sanford Lake spans 1,489 acres and features 34.5 miles of shoreline.


Restoring Sanford Dam

We support the efforts of Four Lakes Task Force (FLTF) and Midland County to rebuild Sanford Dam and restore Sanford Lake. FLTF currently estimates that the lake will return in 2025-2026.
