Onekama is located on the west side of Michigan, approx. 10 miles north of Manistee and the southern gateway to Michigan's scenic highways M-22.

Onekama (pronounced by the locals as a comma and O-Hals-ama) is known as a summer holiday paradise for leisure activities, including camping, fishing, hiking, biking and golf.

But in recent days, the Onekama community sent a social media warning for visitors who enjoy being outside: Ticks become most active from April to September, and once again it seems "to be a bad summer ".

Blacklegged tick.
