The chart features Saugatuck Habour in Michigan and Kalamazoo Lake and Kalamazoo River are centred on the chart. The Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area (SHNA) is a 173-acre tract of magnificent duneland along the Lake Michigan shore north of Oval Beach. Much of it is a peninsula bounded by Lake Michigan, the Kalamazoo River and the Oxbow Lagoon. The latter is the original channel of the Kalamazoo River. This area has historic significance as the site of the original mouth of the Kalamazoo River. In 1906, the present channel was constructed and blowing sand closed the original river mouth, creating the Oxbow Lagoon. Visitors can still see the old pilings from the original river opening extending out into Lake Michigan.
Kalamazoo Lake lies at an elevation of 177 metres south of Saugatuck. The Kalamazoo River connects Kalamazoo Lake with Lake Michigan, the river flows northwest through Otsego, Allegan and Saugatuck, into Lake Michigan.
The Kalamazoo River is 210 km long from the junction of its North and South branches to its mouth at Lake Michigan, with a total length extending to 286 km when one includes the South Branch.The river’s watershed drains an area of approximately 5,200 km2 and drains portions of eight counties in southwest Michigan: Allegan, Barry, Eaton, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, Jackson, Hillsdale, Kent and Ottawa. The river has a median flow at New Richmond, upstream from its mouth at Saugatuck.
