Mt. Maria, on the south shore, is the most famous place in the county, and was listed by National Geographic as one of the ten most beautiful lake views in the country. At the top of Mt. Maria is the site of the Austin Backus Memorial. The Mt. Maria Lodge, at the bottom of the hill, is home to Hubbard Lake's most extensive museum of local history, with hundreds of photo's of Austin Backus and the early residents of this area.

Located in northern Alcona County, scenic Hubbard Lake is Michigan’s 2nd largest inland lake. It was named for Dr.Bela Hubbard, who, along with Dr. Douglass Houghton, first surveyed the area in 1850. Then a strategic military location for Indians because of the high ground at the lake’s southern end, it soon changed into a prime lumbering area. The source of the South Branch of the Thunder Bay River, a dam built here helped regulate the flow of timber to Lake Huron at Alpena. Shortly afterwards, settler Austin Backus built a hotel on the south side, (now Backus Beach) which helped make the area a popular resort.

Since then, the lake has seen tremendous growth - today it has become a prime resort area, retirement spot and real estate investment opportunity. The lake’s widest point stretches 7 miles from North Bay to Backus Beach - spanning the area of three townships: Caledonia, Alcona and Hawes. (These spacious waters once attracted hydroplane designer/racer Les Stoddiker here to research craft design and durability before the final runs at Great Salt Flats).

Hubbard Lake covers 8,850 acres and has a water depth of 97 feet. Fish include Pike, Tiger, Muskie, Walleye, Bass, Perch, Trout, and White Fish.
