Just east of Grand Traverse County and south of Antrim County, Kalkaska County is filled with economic opportunities, outdoor recreation, and a sense of community.

It’s home to the well-known companies American Waste, Kalkaska Screw ProductsWayne Wire & ClothFlannery Machine & Tool and Shetler Dairy. Cash Cook of the Downtown Development Authority describes the area as having a “down home feel” as residents say there’s comfort in the community when everyone knows each other.

And residents and visitors alike are constantly found exploring the area’s abundant natural resources. With 85 lakes, 275 miles of river and stream, and 283,000 acres of forested land, Northern Michigan outdoors play a big part in everyday life.
