Enjoy world-class salmon fishing on the Betsie River. Flowing from Green Lake to Frankfort and offering anglers some of the finest salmon and steelhead fishing in Northern Michigan, the Betsie River is only yards away from your cabin door. In addition to trout fishing, the migratory seasons from late August through early May are prime for steelhead, lake-run browns, Coho, and chinook. Betsie Riverside Resort is the perfect home-base for your next fishing trip. In addition to multiple riverside cabins, we offer a fish-cleaning station, and even freezer space for your prize catch.
