About Michigan

Michigan

Michigan is in the upper Midwest and the heart of the Great Lakes region. It has many attractions, famous landmarks, and scenic state and national parks and forests. In addition to the “great ones”, it has about 12,000 inland lakes, 38 deep-water ports, more miles of coastline than any state but Alaska, and more lighthouses than any other U.S. state. Its agriculture features tourist-friendly fare such as cherries, blueberries, peaches, apples, and wine. And its cities include a major metropolis, some university towns, and countless rustic villages. The state is geographically unique, being comprised of two major peninsulas, and it can be further divided into five distinct areas. They are the Upper Peninsula, (known to Michiganders as "The U.P."), Northern Michigan (Big Rapids and Northwards), Western Michigan (along the sandy coast of Lake Michigan), Central Michigan or "Mid-Michigan" and the Southeast or "Downstate".

The Lower Peninsula has the majority of the population (primarily in the south), while the Upper Peninsula, separated by Lake Michigan and a bit of Lake Huron, is mostly rural. Until 1957, the only way to drive from one to the other was to go all the way around Lake Michigan, or take your car onto a ferry. Michigan's economy was previously dominated by the auto industry, but has diversified somewhat as that and other traditional manufacturing industries have moved their facilities elsewhere, and it's beginning to attract more information technology, life sciences, and high-tech manufacturing jobs. Tourism is a growing segment of the economy, focusing in winter on activities in the snow, and in summer on the State's extensive beaches, lakes, and rivers. Hunting, fishing, and sailing are also popular outdoor activities

It is bordered on the northwest by Lake Superior, by Gogebic County to the west and south, and by Houghton and Iron Counties to the east. The nearest unincorporated community of Matchwood is located on M-28, about 2+ miles to the south. At one time the Diamond Match Company owned most of the pine producing land in the area. They founded this village in 1888 to accommodate are supply their logging camps. Matchwood, was once a thriving village but was wiped out by forest fires that took place in 1893, and after being rebuilt, again in 1906. Ontonagon has historically been focused on copper mining, and forestry, but in the later years of the 20th century, the economy began to shift toward tourism because of its attractive wilderness woods and waters. Ontonagon has 45 streams and rivers! Shoemaker Creek, a tributary of the East Branch of the Ontonagon River flows through the property. Access to the East Branch is just 4 miles to the north up Norwich Road. This cool water fishery supports walleyes, smallmouth bass and northern pike - and trout.

This almost one million acre tract stretches from Lake Superior down to Wisconsin touching five counties. This Forest land provides opportunities for whitewater rafting, waterfall viewing, hunting, fishing, and camping. The area is known for its year-round recreation opportunities. Spring brings the winter snow melts feeding the 18 waterfalls in the County, and canoeing and kayaking is at their peak. Summer recreation opportunities include camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing, as well as golfing. A playground and beach on Lake Gogebic, the largest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula, is a half hour drive away. When fall comes the turning of the leaves create fantastic colors to view along the back woods roads. Fall hunting for small and big game is superb. Winter recreation enthusiasts delight in the Ottawa's location in the heart of "Big Snow Country." Winter opportunities include skiing, (cross country and downhill), snowboarding, skijoring, snow shoeing and ice fishing.
