About Newaygo County

Newaygo County was named after Chippewa Indian Chief: Naw-wa-goo, one of the signers of the Treaty of Saginaw in 1812. The county has over 230 natural lakes and over 350 miles of rivers and streams. Three huge dams were built after the turn of the century: Croton, Hardy and Newaygo. Croton and Hardy Dams remain today, with Hardy the largest earthen dam east of the Mississippi.


Today Newaygo County relies on tourism as its main economic support, with agriculture and small manufacturing secondary. The Muskegon River continues to be the main attraction for summer cottage residents and fishermen, who find it nearly the best source for steelhead in the spring and salmon in the fall anywhere in Michigan. Hunting, camping and RV’ing are also excellent, as over half the county is contained in the Manistee National Forest.

Newaygo County Emergency Services

The Newaygo County Hazard Management Plan is a multi-jurisdictional hazard mitigation plan developed pursuant to the criteria contained in 44CFR Part 201, as authorized by the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. This plan is required in order to maintain eligibility to seek federal funding under the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant Program.  The existing Newaygo County Hazard Management Plan will expire in August 2020.  Newaygo County has received a grant under the FY 2018 Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program in order revise and reauthorize the plan.  A draft Community Profile has been developed by Newaygo County Emergency Services.  This document has been reviewed by the Local Emergency Planning Team on October 15, 2019.  However, in order to meet FEMA requirements for Hazard Mitigation Planning, Newaygo County has posted the draft Community Profile for review and comment (Newaygo Community Profile (2020) Draft).

Newaygo County is requesting the public's assistance with reviewing the Hazard Analysis. Please take a few moments of your time to respond to the following survey: Newaygo County Hazard Management Survey
