About Caseville Michigan

Mid Week Crowds at Cheeseburger Festival

Caseville is a tiny city on the shores of Saginaw Bay near the tip of Michigan’s Thumb. The Pigeon River cuts through the town to create a wonderfully protected public harbor and hosting several full-service private marinas. In 2010 the population was a mere 777. The entire area is a popular destination for summer tourists and snowbird residents. Each August the tiny town hosts over 50,000 visitors with its famous 10-day Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival, a tribute to Jimmy Buffett’s song “Cheeseburger in Paradise”.

In years past it was called the “Perch Capital of Michigan” for its extraordinary catches of the native fish yellow “perch”. However, today the prime target of anglers and sportsmen is the tasty walleye.
