Cadillac West Corridor Improvement Authority

Energizing the Cadillac West Corridor Improvement Authority

Although the economic health of the Cadillac Resort District is good, a number of local property and business owners have decided it's time to energize the strength and vitality of this tourism-oriented commercial district and take advantage of the continuing popularity of Northwest Michigan as a tourist destination.

Some characteristics of the area include:

  • Central to Lake Cadillac and Lake Mitchell providing over 3,000 acres of quality surface water for recreational use
  • Home to highly popular Mitchell State Park and the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center
  • Contiguous to thousands of acres of state and federal forests for passive and active recreational use
  • Traversed by the Cadillac Bike Path with connections to the White Pine Trail State Park, a 92-mile trail that extends from Cadillac to Grand Rapids
  • Within minutes of the Caberfae Ski Resort
  • Range of high quality lodging accommodations and restaurants
  • Full complement of businesses and services catering to the needs of our traveling guests
  • Year-round recreation destination
