The Cadillac Management Unit contains the watersheds of four major rivers: the Pine, Manistee, Pere Marquette, and Muskegon Rivers. Along with the numerous lakes and clear-running streams, they provide the back drop for a myriad of recreational opportunities in 13 state forest campgrounds. The Pine, Upper Manistee, and Pere Marquette Rivers are designated as Michigan Natural Rivers. The Michigan Natural Rivers Program was developed to preserve, protect and enhance our state’s finest river systems for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations by allowing property owners their right to reasonable development, while protecting Michigan’s unique river resources.
