Otsego is a Native American word meaning “gathering place,” and that’s just what this town is. For a small town it packs a big punch. It was named a Michigan Main Street Community in 2013, and for good reason. Otsego supports a downtown of unique shops, delicious restaurants, and commits to organizing events that are fun for the entire family!
Otsego is conveniently located directly off US-131 almost equally between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, making the work commute easy for everyone, whether headed north or south. The welcoming community oriented town, paired with its easy access to nearby cities makes Otsego an attractive place to live for many families.
We are a close knit community that is quickly becoming a destination location in Southwest Michigan. Whether you are looking to experience one of the 41 Michigan craft beers at Maude's Tap House, you have a child that is going to participate in our annual summer Gus Macker Tournament, or you simply just want a place to drop your kayak in the Kalamazoo River, the possibilities are endless here in little Ol' Otsego.
In addition to all the community has to offer, our public schools are flourishing. Our community and school district has dedicated itself to the students. High school students enjoy a new state of the art high school facility, the younger students learn and play in freshly renovated lower level schools, and every Friday night in the fall, the community congregates at our football stadium that other schools only dream about--voted the 7th best stadium in the state of Michigan! Go Bulldogs!
