Welcome to the Kettunen Center. We are a full-service conference center located centrally at the base of northern Michigan. We offer a place to meet, retreat, celebrate and learn. The Kettunen Center is the ideal setting for any group gathering including meetings, retreats, conferences, reunions, camps, banquets and more!

Our year-round facility is located on 160 acres of rolling hills and forests along a beautiful lakefront in Tustin, MI. We provide beauty and tranquility in a natural setting with many opportunities to unwind and explore while taking care of business and learning.

Kettunen Center offers a complete experience that nourishes the soul as well as the mind. We offer meeting spaces, recreation activities, and relaxation all in an up north atmosphere. Lodging for up to 200 in our hotel-style or dorm-style rooms, multiple meeting spaces, recreational activities, top-notch food service, and outstanding hospitality make our facility one of the best in the region.

Kettunen Center is owned and operated by the Michigan 4-H Foundation and for more than 50 years, we’ve welcomed businesses, families, organizations and other groups to enjoy our clear lake and soothing landscapes. We can’t wait to welcome your group to Kettunen!


Kettunen Center is in the middle of a $3.5 million capital campaign that will help enhance the facilities. Click here to see some of the exciting changes that are being planned and how you can participate.
