Lake Fenton is an unincorporated community in Fenton Charter Township, Genesee County in the U.S. state of Michigan.[2] It is also a census-designated place (CDP)[3] for statistical purposes and has no legal status as a municipality. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 4,876. It includes two other recognized unincorporated communities.

The Lake Fenton Community Schools district overlaps a portion of this and adjacent areas. The school district and community named after Lake Fenton, formerly Long Lake. A community was platted as "Mount Pleasant" by John Cook in 1840, with a second plat added in 1845. The name was changed to Long Lake in 1850, and a post office with that name opened on March 6, 1851. The lake was subsequently renamed Lake Fenton and the platted settlement became extinct.[4] In 1932, the United States Board on Geographic Names decided on "Lake Fenton" as the official name of the lake.[5]

Astronaut Michael J. Bloomfield grew up in Lake Fenton (his address was officially Linden, Michigan, and he was born in Flint, Michigan).
