    A "Land of Endless Discovery" awaits you in Michigan's Great Up North. Welcome to Cheboygan County.

  • Getaway to the Cheboygan Area "Michigan's Great Up North" 

    Cheboygan is the Gateway to the Waterways--your perfect passage to Pure Michigan. With three rivers, three lakes and more than 40 miles of inland boating, steer your outboard through its lock system and "rev it up" on the open water. Boat to nearby islands, including Mackinac. Imagine you're the harbor master from one of seven area lighthouses. Dive more than 50 world-class shipwrecks. Bike and hike the intersection of the North Central State and North Eastern State rail-trails. Ride through Black Mountain Recreational Area, only one of three sanctioned ATV areas in Michigan. 

    Indian River is in the center of the Inland Waterway, two blue ribbon trout streams - Sturgeon River, the fastest flowing river in the Northern Lower Peninsula and the beautiful Pigeon River. Hunt, fish and play in 180,000+ acres of State Land including Mackinaw State Forest and the lovely Pigeon River Country State Forest, home to Michigan's only free ranging Elk Herd, the largest herd east of the Mississippi. Indian River is home to one of Michigan's best known attractions, the Cross In The Woods.

    Mackinaw City is the gateway to all things Northern Michigan and proud to be the home of three National Historic sites, world's most beautiful suspension bridge "The Mighty Mac" and ferries to magical Mackinac Island.
