Living in Michigan can be a challenge at times. Taking a walk in 60 degree temperatures one day and less than 24 hours later a half inch of ice and several inches of snow. Exciting because you never know what you need to pack when traveling to Michigan. Newaygo County offers a variety of opportunities to experience the real Michigan. The Muskegon River is located here in Newaygo County and has access in several locations within a 10 mile zone. Steelhead fishing, water skiing and bird watching are just a few of the opportunites you have while visiting Newaygo County. If your family is craving a weekend home in the woods or on a lake you have several places to pick from. No wake lakes or active boating are within minutes of anywhere in the county. Kayakers will love to take a trip to the emerald green lakes or sled down the Welcome Centers sled hill. We have it all!
