Climate – Golf or Ski?


We have the highest terrain in northern-lower Michigan and are surrounded by hundreds of lakes and natural forests, not to mention being centrally located to two of the Great Lakes. Otsego County is one of the most beautiful places to be to be whether it is Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter.

There is no better place to be for outdoor recreationists during the winter months than in Otsego County. Average temperatures during the month of January are typically around 18.2 degrees, and snow fall averages for the winter season are about 143.5 inches. Summer months can be warm but on average the typical temperature remains in the lower 70's with July averages around 67.7 degrees.
