City of Hesperia

Welcome to the picturesque community of Hesperia.  The town is situated on the border of Oceana and Newaygo Counties along the beautiful White River, where you will find some of the best salmon and rainbow trout fishing in Michigan.  Enjoy a stroll down main street, stop in and visit the quaint local shops, walk along the riverside boardwalk, watch the fish jump next to the dam, take a swim in the Millpond, or enjoy a quiedt walk out to the gazebo on the two islands.  The more adventurous can kayak down the river, put in you boat or hire a river guide, and camp and fish along the river.  Hesperia is surrounded by the Manistee National Forest, as well as several inland lakes and streams, where residents and visitors can enjoy hunting, hiking, and recreational activities almost year round.  Winter sports are abound as well including snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and ice-fishing.
