Explore the two lakes right in the heart of Cadillac and the businesses and attractions along the way.

Sights: Lake Cadillac | Lake Mitchell | Downtown Cadillac

The Cadillac Lakes Route takes you on a 20-mile trip around both of our lakes right in the heart of the greater Cadillac Area.  Beginning in the heart of Cadillac at the Cadillac Commons, you can drive along the southern shore of both Lake Cadillac and Lake Mitchell before turning north along the western edge of Lake Cadillac. The beautiful route will take you into the Manistee National Forest to the west and pop you back out into an area known as “Cadillac West” where you can stop at the Mitchell State Park, Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center and the Heritage Nature Trail.  After a quick hike, continue along the north shore of Lake Cadillac and enjoy the Clam River Greenway and Keith McKellop Walkway before ending at the Cadillac Commons.

Thank You For Another Wonderful Fall Color Season - November 9th, 2021

Most of the trees in our area have passed or are now passing their peak color state. We have had unseasonably warm temperatures again the past several days and so there is a bit of color still hanging on in some places, if you can find it! Click here to see a late season round up video from in and around Cadillac on our Instagram page! If you are ready for the snow to fly, don't forget to subscribe to future seasonal updates as we wait for winter to arrive.
