William Copeland wans the first settler in Kalkasa, purchasing land in 1855 near Round Lake. In 1872 A A Abbott and R L Thompson bought land along the Boardman River and the following year built a sawmill. Because of Kalkaska's county state forests, lakes and trout streams, it makes for a year-round tourist industry. In the 1970's gas and oil were found. The National Trout Festival and National Women's Bear Hunt are held here.
