Hesperia is a village of under 1,000 residents, located on the boundary of Oceana and Newaygo Counties on Michigans Lower Peninsula. About half of the village is in Newfield Township in Oceana County and half in Denver Township in Newaygo County. This pretty little community is situated along the White River, which flows on the north end of town, and is complete with a dam, mill pond and swimming area. Other activities on the river include canoeing and fishing. The White River is excellent for trout fishing in spring and salmon fishing in the fall. Tourism plays a major role in this area. Oceana County (located about halfway up the state on Lake Michigans shoreline,) is known as the asparagus capital of the world. It also has the second largest fruit tree acreage in Michigan. The Little Sauble Point area and Silver Lake sand dunes is one of the few places in the country that offer dune schooner rides to view the pristine coastline along Lake Michigan. In Newaygo County, the Muskegon River is a major summer attraction - especially for its fishing opportunities. Over half of Newaygo County is inside the Manistee National Forest, which offers many other recreational opportunities. Hesperia is approximately 45 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Hesperia Weather & Climate

Central Michigan , on the Lower Peninsula, has four distinct seasons, with weather that can be quite variable. This is because the state is nearly surrounded by water, and the climate is influenced both by warm, humid air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico, and cold, dry air from the Arctic. The central region of the Lower Peninsula has warm summers with precipitation in the form of showers and thunderstorms. The climate is somewhat influenced by a lake effect, which helps keep temperatures mild during the summer and increases the moisture content in the air throughout the year. In the winter, this moisture condenses as snow as it reaches the land, creating heavy snowfalls in some areas, known as snow squalls. Autumn is often the sunniest time of the year in Michigan.
