Welcome to the Near North...
The Gladwin County Chamber of Commerce cheerfully welcomes you to the "Near North"! Located within 3 hours and one tankful of gas from Michigan's major metropolitan areas, Gladwin County is your four seasons playground, with plenty of water, woods, and fun for everyone!
From relaxing in the sun on a beautiful waterfront or in our peaceful woods, to shopping at antique stores and gift shops, to leisurely exploring our beautiful rural area, Gladwin County has indoor and outdoor activities for everyone. Do you yearn to hear the rustle of leaves in a gentle breeze, or the gentle lapping of waves on a beach? For a day trip, a relaxing weekend getaway, or a longer stay, Gladwin County has it all!
Thousands of acres of state land are available for hiking, nature study, ORV adventures, snowmobiling, camping, hunting, fishing, and much more. With over 50 lakes and 473 miles of streams and rivers, it's no wonder that fishing, pleasure boating, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming are so popular. Natural resources are here in abundance.
This is your invitation to come sample all Gladwin County has to offer. Should you need additional information, please give us a call or stop in for a visit at our Chamber office. Gladwin County is conveniently located in the Heart of Michigan, with easy access from the I-75, U.S.-10, and U.S.-127 expressways.
