Nestled in Michigan's Manistee National Forest and only 30 minutes from the shores of Lake Michigan, the quiet town of Baldwin caters to sportsmen of all types; hunters, fishermen, canoeists, campers and snow-mobilers. The town is blessed with its proximity to dozens of lakes, and at least four major trout, salmon and steelhead rivers; the blue ribbon fisheries of the Pere Marquette, the Manistee, the Little Manistee, and the Baldwin. Baldwin is home to several sporting goods stores, fishing lodges and guide services.
