Visitors, locals cooling off in Roscommon County waters
Steve Gregor, whose family lives “just up the street” from Houghton Heights Beach in Roscommon Township, said they have been spending a lot of time at the lake lately, trying to beat the heat. “It’s pretty convenient,” said Gregor.
Mike Muñoz, who said he and his family live on a farm in Bullock Creek said it was “a lot hotter” in Midland County than it was at Houghton Lake Monday afternoon. He said 97 degree heat with high humidity at home made coming to Houghton Lake a relief.
Lyle Stiles, who said he was visiting his uncle Keith Stiles at Houghton Lake with his wife Sandi, daughter Sophie, 10 and sons Casey and Brady, both 7, from Fort Thomas, KY, were biking their way to the beach on Monday afternoon. He said that the thermometer hit 105 at home last week, and that their three-day visit to Houghton Lake was part of a week-long vacation which will also include a stay at South Haven.
