Lake Township in Missaukee County, Michigan was organized in 1883. The Lake Township hall is located at the corner of Dickerson Road and Kelly Road. The original township hall was a two-story building built in 1884 in the Village of Jennings. The second story of the original township hall was moved to the present site in 1924. In the early 1900’s Jennings had approximately 2000 inhabitants and was engaged in the lumbering business. Several houses were moved from Jennings to Cadillac after the lumber mills closed. Today Jennings is considered a ghost town.

The population in Lake Township is approximately 2,500, according to the 2000 census and remains about the same today. Tourism is a primary industry of Lake Township. Many people living in the township work in the nearby city of Cadillac.

Lake Township has four main lakes. They are Lake Missaukee, Sapphire Lake, Crooked Lake, and Round Lake. Round Lake is privately owned and does not have a public access site. The other three lakes are all-season recreational lakes and all have public access. The Clam River also runs through the township and is considered a premier trout-fishing river.

There is a Township Park on the Clam River, located on M-55, that can be used for picnics and fishing. Crooked Lake County Park is located in Lake Township and is used for camping, picnics, fishing and boating on the lake. There is a boat launch area on Crooked Lake.
