Otsego County


We are very proud of where we live and work. Otsego County is known for its natural beauty, friendly people, and progressive attitude. On the crossroad of two major highways, our central location is convenient for tourism and business. Championship golf, pristine forests, beautiful lakes and rivers, and recreational activities covering four seasons make life attractive here. We are on the grow! Otsego County has been one of the fastest growing areas in Michigan for many years. With state-of-the-art educational facilities, Michigan’s first community fiber network, and quality government services, Otsego County provides big city advantages while maintaining its rural character.
