Onekama is located on beautiful Portage lake in Onekama Township in northwestern Manistee County. Adam Stronach, a key figure in the development of Manistee County, started settlement of the area, building a lumber mill on the channel between Portage Lake and Lake Michigan in 1845. The Indian word for "Portage," "Oneka-ma-engh" was chosen for the town when it received a post office in 1871, as there was already another town named Portage in southern Michigan. The town became a station on the Manistee and Northwestern Railroad in 1888 and organized as a village in 1891.|
Today, Onekama remains a popular seasonal tourist spot, with its park, marina, restaurants, resorts and shops - not to mention its close location to Manistee and many other travel and recreational opportunities in Manistee County.
