• Otsego County is located in the central portion of Michigan's Northern Lower Peninsula.

• The majority of this rolling country is forestland though some farming does take place despite our generally sandy soils.

• Since much of Otsego County consists of excessively drained to well drained soils, ground water contamination and soil erosion are topics of major concern.

• There are more than 370 lakes throughout Otsego County.

• The headwaters of 5 major rivers can be found in Otsego County (the Au Sable, Black, Manistee, Pigeon, and Sturgeon River).

• Otsego County includes a diversity of habitat and is home to many species of fish and wildlife, including the federally endangered Kirtland's warbler and several state endangered, threatened, and special concern plants and animals.

• Otsego County's natural resources provide countless opportunities for outdoor recreation.
