Whitmore Lake is an unincorporated community in the U.S. state of Michigan. The community spans the boundary between Green Oak Township in Livingston County and Northfield Township in Washtenaw County. The United States Census Bureau has defined a Census-designated place (CDP) with this name for statistical purposes which has no legal status as an incorporated municipality. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 6,574.
The community is located about nine miles (14.5 km) north of Ann Arbor and about six miles south of Brighton. It is situated around the shores of Whitmore Lake and the CDP also includes the area around the smaller Horseshoe Lake to the south, Lawton Lake to the east and Monahan Lake to the northeast. U.S. Highway 23 forms the western edge of much of the CDP for the 2000 census.
The Whitmore Lake ZIP code, 48189, is also used by a wider area than that defined by the CDP, including Hamburg Township and a large part of Northfield Township.
The 667-acre Whitmore Lake was named by Jonathan F. Stratton, a surveyor, after Luke H. Whitmore, a local landowner around 1825. Area residents have considered incorporation many times, but have not chosen to do so yet.
