A Pure Michigan Passion Destination in Northwest Michigan.

Natural beauty.  It’s northern Michigan’s claim to fame, and it flourishes in Manistee County.  There are no big cities or suburban sprawl in our section of the Pure Michigan Mitten. Enjoy our 25 miles of sandy Lake Michigan shoreline, three Lake Michigan harbors, inland lakes, 270 miles of rivers and four-season fisheries. Visit our charming, historic towns and marvel at our fertile farms and lush orchards, and our thousands of acres of Manistee National Forest.

There are opportunities year-round to explore our county by foot, bicycle, motorcycle and auto, x-country ski, snowshoe, ATV, snowmobile, boat, kayak and canoe, as roads, trails, rivers and lakes crisscross throughout the county.  You can even explore the county by air.  Use this official tourism site in Manistee County as your complete tourism resource for traveling to Manistee and Northwest Michigan.
