|Escape to Michigan's Golf and Water Wonderland|
With more than 100 lakes and rivers in our area, water sports play a large part in bringing new neighbors to Mecosta County. Canoeing, fishing, power boating, swimming and sailing are some of the many activities we have to offer. The lakes of Mecosta County provide the fisherman with a variety of gamefish ranging from walleye to tiger muskie with record largemouth bass catches yearly. The largest and most notable lakes are Canadian Lakes, the Tri-Lakes (which include Lake Mecosta, Blue Lake and Round Lake), Chippewa Lake, Horsehead Lake, Jehnsen Lake, Pretty Lake, School Section Lake and the Martiny Chain of Lakes. The Muskegon River hosts salmon and steelhead runs for the more hearty individuals. The beautiful Muskegon River winds through Big Rapids and the city is known throughout Michigan as the tubing capital. Rails to trails are part of a nationwide network converting old railroad lines into usable trails for hiking, biking, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. The White Pines Trail and Pere Marquette Trail traverse the original rail bridge providing scenic crossings over the Muskegon River.
Big Rapids is also home to Ferris State University (FSU). Many of the areas cultural events and attractions like theatrical plays, speakers and concerts are sponsored by FSU. In the winter, NCAA Division I hockey takes center stage. FSU “cranks up the ice” and goes head-to-head with the likes of U of M, MSU and Notre Dame.
