Long Lake (formerly Eagle Lake) is a 295-acre (119 ha) lake in northeastern Montmorency County, Michigan. The lake is primarily in Montmorency Township, although the southernmost portion is located in Hillman Township, as well as part of the Mackinaw State Forest. The nearest town is Hillman at about 6 miles (9.7 km) southeast of the lake.
Long Lake consists of two distinct sections divided by a 500-foot (152 m) channel. In the larger northern section of the lake sits a small island unofficially known as Meltzer Island. Also in the north of the lake sits a small bay known as Ghost Bay due to the treacherous floor and taller trees surrounding the bay limiting sunlight.
