Bitely (which, due to a typographical error, is sometimes misspelled Biteley) is an unincorporated community within Newaygo County in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is within Lilley Township about one mile west of M-37 in the Manistee National Forest. It is near Bitely Lake, Lamoreaux Lake, Isaac Lake and several smaller lakes. It was a station on the Chicago and West Michigan Railroad (later the Pere Marquette, then the Chesapeake and Ohio, now Marquette Rail) in 1889, and given a post office on September 13, 1889, with Archer D. Martin as its first postmaster. It was named for Steven Bitely, who built a sawmill there, but due to a typographical error, the post office was initially spelled as Biteley. Bitely is at 43°44′49″N 85°51′42″W. The Bitely ZIP code is 49309, and the same ZIP code also serves all of Lilley Township, most of Troy Township to the west, Home Township to the east, portions of Beaver Township to the southwest, Merrill Township to the south, Monroe Township to the southeast, Pleasant Plains Township to the north, and Yates Township to the northeast.
