Vandercook Lake Reviews

I love Vandercook Lake! I feel as if it is a very 'looked over' community. It isn't super wealthy, there isn't much to do there, but it is a place that makes you feel at home. Though there isn't much to do right in the center of the community, it is only about a 10 minute drive from downtown Jackson, MI. Jackson is slowly turning into more of a tourist destination and it shows! Vandercook is benefiting from the improvement of Jackson.
