Kalkaska

Featured in Ernest Hemingway’s “The Battler,” Kalkaska is home to 3 rivers (Boardman, Rapid, and Manistee Rivers) and over 80 inland lakes.
Every spring since 1933, Kalkaska has marked the start of trout season with the weeklong National Trout Festival, and even built a statue in the fish’s honor.
Seated comfortably within the “Snowbelt,” notable amounts of snow accumulation make this area popular with winter enthusiasts.
