The majority of Corey Lake lies in an area of rolling hills on well-drained loamy soils. Glacial till plains and moraines are common in the area. The lake is primarily a combination of active and fallow farmland, followed by small blocks of forest, wetlands and urban areas. The urban areas are actually quite small and are limited to the lake’s shoreline.
Corey lake is 630 acres and is the second largest lake in St. Joseph County. There is one inlet to Corey Lake, located on the eastern shore, which is the outlet for Harwood Lake (lake on left side of picture). There are two outlets, both located on the south shore. These were noted in a 1953 survey to be artificial outlets. The southeastern outlet flows to Kaiser Lake. The south-central outlet flows to a wetland area which is the headwaters of Curtis Creek. These outlets eventually feed the St. Joseph River watershed of Lake Michigan.
