Request your 2019 Travel Guide

With 60 pages of incredible resources for the region, the Cadillac Michigan Travel Guide is the ONLY official travel publication in the Cadillac Area.  Complete with all new maps, travel ideas, and more, this is a MUST for any new traveler to the area.

Enjoy Snow. Find your Sleds.

Do you realize how many miles of trails are in the Cadillac area?  250+… that gives you a lot of riding and a lot to see.  Plus, we have marked all the major attractions and hot spots along the way.

Cast Your Line in the Ice.

In January, 3,700 acres of lakes and ponds of the Cadillac area become populated with ice shanties and dedicated fisherman ready to brake the weather for a great catch. 

Access Maps. XC Ski the Trails.

There is almost no limit to how far you can go and what you can explore on our vast trail network that is 200+ miles strong…


Nature is calling you to explore ALL WAYS CADILLAC…our rolling, forest-covered hills, ample rivers, diverse lakes, and varied trails all interconnect and span for miles and miles of fun.

When the sunsets are earlier and hang on the rim, the autumn leaves begin to turn with vivid reds and golds coloring the river valleys and forests. With over 500,000 acres of National Forest, our late September thru October Color Tours are a must-see, a ‘bucket list’ item for sure. The Cadillac region is also the geographic center of Michigan and boasts the highest elevation in the state. The shifting winds across Lake Michigan keep the winter white on our trails and ski hills longer, and freeze our lakes earlier than most. Skiers, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, ice fishermen… they all co-exist in our region.

Come join us!
