About Casnovia Township Minimize

Casnovia Township is located in Western Michigan. We are located in Muskegon County being 22 miles from the center of Muskegon. We are also 25 miles North of Grand Rapids.

We have one lake in our township.  Easy access off M37, Half Moon Lake is large enough for boating, swimming, and of course fishing.  In the winter, you will find fishing shanties set up on the lake as soon as the lake freezes.

We are a farming community. In the spring, you will be amazed at the blossoms from the cherries, peaches, and apple trees. You will see many fields of corn, wheat, and soy bean fields along with many hay fields.
