Keeping an eye on the 'Hartbeat' of our city;
Focused in the "Hart" of Oceana County.

Hart is located approximately six miles inland from Lake Michigan, half way between Muskegon & Ludington on the western side of the state. This close proximity to Lake Michigan gives visitors and residents the opportunity to enjoy the natural resources of the great outdoors.

We are a four seasons community where you can enjoy spring bike rides and hikes, summer walks on the beach, fall color tours or winter snowmobiling and ice fishing. You can always find something to do or see in the Hart of Oceana County at any time of the year!
