Lakes abound in and around the quaint town of Kallaska, with more than 80 streams and rivers and country and state parks just waiting to be explored. In winter the snow brings plenty of winter fun and snowy activities for visitors and locals.
The Kalkaska County Historical Museum inside the Train Depot building in downtown Kalkaska is worth a stop in for some great background on the history of the area. In town you should also check out the Cherry Street Market, famous for its great selection of plants and fresh fruit and vegetables plus artisan products. Enjoy fun on the lakes and rivers with plenty of fishing, boating and water sports available. Hiking in this area is wonderful with some scenic and pristine trails winding for miles through the Pere Marquette State Forest and the Sand Lake Quiet Area. You can bicycle, hike and cross country ski here in winter. Guernsey Lake State Forest is a popular place to camp and hike too.
Come in April and enjoy warm weather plus the celebreation of Michigan's state fish - the trout - with The National Trout Festival held annually the last weekend in April.
