Stanwood is located in Mecosta County in northern Michigan's "Big Rapids Area." The small town of Stanwood is primarily an agricultural community, but is near many of northern Michigan's prime recreational areas. There are more than 30 lakes in the region for swimming, sunbathing, boating, fishing, water skiing, camping and picnicking. And the winding Muskegon River is perfect for canoeing, tubing and kayaking. Stanwood is also on the "White Pine Trail State Park," and the city park is a good place to access the Trail. This scenic area has miles and miles of trails for hiking and biking, and northern Michigan is also home to some of the most beautiful golf courses in the state. Stanwood makes a good base from which to explore the antiques and quaint shops and Amish farms that dot the countryside. And the fun doesn't end in summer; there are fall color tours available and in wintertime, Mecosta County has cross country skiing, sledding and snowmobiling opportunities. All year long you can find family style special events near Stanwood, including the Mecosta County Fair in July, the Big Rapids River Days in August, and the Wheatland Music & Arts Fair, usually held Labor Day weekend.
