East Jordan – Home
“Where river, lake, and friendly people meet”
East Jordan is a beautiful Northern Michigan town, located on Lake Charlevoix, previously known as Pine Lake. East Jordan was founded in the 1870’s, and it was originally part of a town named, South Arm. It is a small town with about 2,500 residents.
In its recent years, East Jordan has become a popular place to visit in the summer months. One popular attraction is the Jordan River, which is among the cleanest rivers in Michigan, spans 33 miles, and was the first river to be designated as a National Wild and Scenic River. East Jordan also hosts the Freedom Festival every summer, which brings a lot of people from East Jordan and outside of East Jordan downtown to enjoy carnival rides, games and concerts. The lakes, small town atmosphere, parks, and warm summer days make the city a popular place for tourists – or “fudgies,” as locals would call them. They always seem to have a good time in East Jordan, and the following video, produced by the East Jordan Shoe Club, shows why.
