West Olive is located in the Olive Township in Ottawa County, Michigan. With its population of just over 8,000, West Olive maintains a small-town feel although there is plenty to do here to keep you busy. In West Olive, you aren't far from several surrounding cities with places to see, but you'll find there's enough to do right at your own front door. There are hundreds of acres of public parks and beaches, along with many miles of shoreline to explore with your dog by your side in West Olive. West Olive showcases sweeping farmlands meeting with beautiful shorelines, truly making it the best of both worlds.
