A bit about us...

Homestead Township is a rural area in the northeast part of Benzie County in the lower peninsula of Michigan. It has the quaint Village of Honor within it, which is home to the National Coho Salmon Festival nestled on US-31. It also has the beautiful Platte River not only running through Honor but most of the township.

Homestead Township was established in 1864 and was a logging area at that time. Today it offers ample hunting and fishing to the sportsman, along with canoeing and kayaking for paddlers. It has a section of the Betsie Valley Trail running through the southeast end of the township. For those that enjoy the winter sports, there is snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing

Homestead Township is 12 miles from the harbor town of Frankfort and Lake Michigan to the west. The city of Traverse City is 25 miles to the east for those who would like a bit of city. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is 20 miles to the northwest.

The township is home to the Platte River Fish Hatchery and the Cherry Bowl Drive-In, one of the last outdoor theaters left in the country. For those who would like to primitive camp, the township offers two state parks, Veterans Memorial on US-31 and Goose Road State Park on Goose Road. Both parks are on the Platte River.

We hope you will come and check out all we have to offer.
