Just 18 miles east of I-75 at the junction of highways M-68 and M-33, the Onaway   area is promoting business opportunities in Northeast Michigan. The city of Onaway is located in picturesque Presque Isle County in Northeastern Lower Michigan, 250 miles north of Detroit.  With a high-wire corridor east along M-68 to Port Calcite, and an industrial grade highway west to I-75, a new sewage system, an industrial park and renaissance zone tax free business property, Onaway offers a great future and great opportunities for both large and small business facilities. In addition, our area has a quality of life that is unmatched anywhere. This will mean a more productive work force for your business.

Onaway, Michigan is located in the heart of Michigan's popular "Up North" region. Our city is just 45 miles south of the Mackinac Bridge, 5 miles from Onaway State Park and Black Lake,  minutes from the Black Mountain Recreation Area, state forest campgrounds, snowmobile trails, and a host of other recreation opportunities. Just four hours north of Detroit makes Onaway the perfect destination for a weekend get-away in Michigan's great "Up North". Come up and see why we are called the "Playground of the North" because of our diversified northern Michigan recreational activities.
