Green's Lake receives it's name from "Big Neil" Greene, one of the early settlers on the island.  There is also a Green's Bay on the Lake Michigan shore of the island just across from the entrance to this lake.  Green's Lake boasts some huge oak trees near the edge of the water.

This lake can be accessed by turning off the West Side Road onto the Green's Lake Road.   A very shallow lake, about 4 feet, Green's Lake freezes to the bottom during the winter.  Snapping turtles, bull-heads and frogs can be found here along with thousands of water lilies.  Even the beaver have produced a lodge on this lake.
