Brethren is in the Eastern part of Manistee County and the heart of the Manistee National Forest. Home to Tippy Dam, (on the Big Manistee River) Brethren is a very popular fishing and floating destination. Tons of Trout and Salmon fill the river every year, so even novice fishermen have a chance at reeling in the big one! There's also Snowmobile Trails and great Morel Mushroom spots to keep you busy outdoors year round. Brethren has it's own k-12 school, Traks Bar and Grill, a Community Park and a Gas station.
