About Cadillac

On the eastern edge of the Manistee National Forest, about an hour drive from Lake Michigan, you'll find Cadillac—a small, friendly town set in the midst of inland lakes, streams, and woods that can be enjoyed year-round. On spring and summer days, we enjoy golfing, hiking, camping, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. Fall brings hunting season for small and large-game. In winter, there's plenty of snow for snowshoeing, downhill and cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.
