About Greenwood Township
Greenwood Township is located in the southeast corner of Oceana County Michigan. Oceana County itself is located along the Lake Michigan shoreline approximately midway between Michigan’s southern border and Traverse City.
Greenwood lies one mile south of Hesperia, a small rural village of approximately 1,000. The majority of the township is part of the Manistee National Forest. Much of this area is designated as “primitive” and has been closed to all vehicular traffic.
Visitors to the area can stay at Pines Point National Campground and hike or horseback the many miles of trails that crisscross the area. The Campground is located on the White River and is a popular exit point for the many canoers and tubers that float the river in the summer.
The White River intersects the length and width of the township running diagonally from the Northeast to the southwest. It is a popular destination for fisherman year round offering up excellent trout and salmon fishing. The Township owns a small park called Taylor Bridge Landing located on the river midway between Hesperia and Pines Point. Canoers and tubers use this park as a stopover point on their trip downriver. The park offers picnic tables and grills and is quite busy from March through November.
Greenwood Township Board meets the second Monday of each month at 7:00pm at the township hall.
The Planning Commission meets the first Wednesday of every other month.
