Introduction to Michigan Center



Life in the Jackson County community of Michigan Center revolves around one thing: the
water.
Located on a chain of seven lakes - most notably Center Lake - opportunities for water
recreation are endless. Anglers will find no shortage of fishing spots, boaters will find endless
areas to cruise, and swimmers will have ample places to splish and splash. The community’s
water way of life is further celebrated by the Carp Carnival, a local summer tradition nearly six
decades old. With a parade, live music, carnival rides, and a fishing contest, the carnival is a
classic family event, leading to a small-town sense of community.
Michigan Center and surrounding Leoni Township offer a variety of attractive living
options as well. With easy access to US-127 for commuters, it’s a great fit for virtually any
lifestyle, and will feel right at home in no time.
