Elk Rapids is a beguiling community, unique in charm and ambiance. It is located in the southwest corner of Antrim county, bounded by East Grand Traverse Bay to the west, Elk Lake to the east, Bass Lake to the north, and the Elk River runs through it. Boaters, day trippers and sunbathers seek out Elk Rapids' sandy shores, quaint shops and unique restaurants. Although the village covers only one square mile, its forefathers have preserved its most scenic areas and dedicated them to public use. Memorial Park and Antrim County Park each offer several hundred feet of shoreline for swimming and relaxing along the east arm of Grand Traverse Bay.
