Nature at Its Best
Gladwin offers all the peace and beauty of country living, yet with easy access to the extra shopping, dining and cultural activities of the Tri-Cities.
For outdoor enthusiasts, the county boasts 40 inland lakes and 85,000 acres of state land. Enjoy the fresh water playgrounds, open fields, pine-filled forests and nature trails. Visit the 250-acre reservoir on Ross Lake in nearby Beaverton. Check out the many perfect settings for hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and more.
When you are ready to enjoy a little more "urban" experience, it is just over an hour's drive to Midland, Saginaw or Bay City. In fact, many Gladwin residents commute to the Tri-Cities each day and enjoy the best of both worlds.
Gladwin county residents number more than 21,000. Light business – plastic manufacturing, metal fabrication and construction – complement the tourism industry. Enjoy the friendly rivalry of Gladwin and Beaverton schools in this small, close-knit community.
