If you like the outdoors, Arenac County is great place to relocate your business, or to establish a new manufacturing facility. There are a multitude of outdoor recreational activities to enjoy along with the year-round community festivals and events.
This video highlights the beauty of the area and the benefits of living and working in one of the communities along the almost 50 miles of Lake Huron shoreline or adjacent to thousands of acres of recreational land.
Located on the northern shore of Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron, this area has long been inhabited by humans, with some 5000 year old Native American artifacts being found here. The Rifle, Au Gres, and Pine Rivers made for excellent fishing and canoeing routes for both the Ottawa Indians and early settlers to the area including Captain J.P. Phillips and John Lentz, who started a sawmill in 1856.
