Gladstone Overview

Gladstone, the 'Year 'round Playground' of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is located about 120 miles north from the city of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and sits along the shore of Little Bay de Noc which makes up part of the dark blue waters of Green Bay on Lake Michigan.

The population of about 5,000 makes for a 'small town' feel but the city has a lot to offer. Gladstone's shore-line includes wooded parks, beaches, a campground, a boardwalk through natural settings, and a public boat launch near the yacht club and tranquil marina. In summer months, the bay churns with all types of water activity - from swimming and boating to world-class walleye fishing. The Gladstone Golf Course lies in a pristine woodland along the Days River where deer roam the tree-line. The town hosts the area's festive Fourth of July celebrations each yar. In winter, Gladstone offers a ski park, ice fishing, hunting, and snow machine trails. An annual motorcycle race event takes place on the nearby, frozen, Escanaba River.

Recently renovated downtown streets, the many houses and buildings that are more than a century old, and the numerous 'mom and pop' businesses and services all enhance the friendly, relaxing, small-town atmosphere. For a big time in a small town, visit Gladstone.
