Grayling and Crawford County

Grayling is a small town and the seat of Crawford County. Over 70 percent of our local land is public, with the majority open for recreation. You will see few fences in our area. The area has long been a center of a wide variety of outdoor activities. We have retained our small town feel and have avoided shrinking away or growing into another faceless Anytown USA. If you look closely at our 'How to Get Here' page, you'll see we are the center of many types of outdoor recreation and a wide variety of trails.
