Northern Michigan at your fingertips

PRIME LOACATION

Onaway is a sportsman’s paradise and a nature lover’s dream. The area is home to thousands of acres of northern Michigan state forest recreation areas, fishing, hunting and inland lakes. The city is surrounded by thousands of acres of Mackinaw State Forest, and the scenery is breathtaking. Watching leaves change as the seasons fold one after the other, is a worth the time spent at the Center.

SUMMER OR WINTER

Onaway is an all-season, inside and outdoor, recreation destination. It’s also just a short jaunt from Burt Lake, Mullet Lake and Michigan’s popular Inland Waterways. Onaway is only five miles from its namesake’s state park and Black Lake, which is teeming with excellent walleye, bass and perch fishing.

A SHORT TRIP

Located in the northeast, lower-peninsula of Michigan, Onaway sits on the western edge of Presque Isle County and is just a short drive from Black Mountain State Forest Recreation Area, Ocqueoc Falls, Petoskey, Charlevoix, the Mackinac Bridge and so many other area attractions. It is 18 miles east of I-75, 22 miles west of Lake Huron, 45 miles southeast of the Straits of Mackinac and 265 miles north of Detroit.
