From sandy beaches to dense hardwoods, Manistee County is “Naturally More.” Home of the Manistee National Forest, championship golf, world class fishing and some of the best waterways in Michigan. Enjoy 276 miles of rivers and streams on a relaxing float or a fast water trip. Charter fishing, boating, swimming, windsurfing and sailing make for great outdoor recreation. Wander through small towns with Indian names, quaint shops, orchard blossoms, bubbling artesian wells and flower-lined streets. Fall brings out street side farmers markets, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and colors you won’t find in a paint can.
