Gladwin, MichiganNature 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.

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.
