Offering the combination of Lake Michigan and Portage Lake, Onekama is an unbeatable Northern Michigan destination whether it's to live, work or vacation. We are surrounded by nature's bounty of fresh water, sand and National Forest. Onekama boasts excellent fishing, water sports, lodging, restaurants, shopping and more.
The beautiful area of Portage Lake and Onekama is located on the Northern West coast of the lower peninsula, nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan. An hour southwest of Traverse City or about 35 minutes north of Ludington, Onekama serves as the southern gateway for the M22 Scenic Heritage Route, ending in Traverse City Michigan.
M-22 Highway’s outstanding natural beauty is breathtaking and is one of our treasures we hope you will enjoy.
We are the Two Lake Town where the pace is slower, the people are friendlier and the beaches are cleaner.
