Cheboygan, Michigan

Cheboygan is the county seat of Cheboygan County. Population: 4,999. City Hall: 403 N. Huron St., Cheboygan, MI 49721, (231) 627-9931. In 1844, Jacob Sammons (1804-1859), a cooper from Fort Mackinac, set out in his scow to seek his fortune on a site of his own. He chose this old Indian camping ground (Shabwegan, they had called it), built his cabin, plied his trade and recruited other settlers and craftsmen. Given a post office as Duncan in 1846, changed to Cheboygan in 1870. Incorporated as a village in 1871 and as a city in 1889. The Chippewas were also called Cehboys and the term gan meant water, so Cheboygan may mean Chippewa Water, namely the river which now bears that name and from which the county and the city took their name.  Cheboygan, Michigan is located on the shores of Lake Huron and the banks of the Cheboygan River. Cheboygan is an Indian name meaning “through passage” referring to the 38.2 mile Inland Waterway Route. Cheboygan is a year round community providing entertainment and activities for our visitors to participate in. We have cross-country skiing and snowmobile trails, area fishing opportunities, boating, beaches, a buffalo ranch, indoor ice pavilion, craft shows, concerts in the park, parade, a county museum, elk viewing, fall color tours, lighthouses along our Lake Huron shoreline and we are home of the Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw which gives tours during the summer months. The Opera House is a 582 seat facility, open all year that presents an outstanding variety of live performances.

Cheboygan State ParkCheboygan State Park [Wildlife Viewing Area] - Closest Town: Cheboygan. Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Cheboygan State Park headquarters, (231) 627-2811; DNR Operations Service Center at Gaylord, (989) 732-3541. From Cheboygan drive east on US-23 four miles to the park entrance on the left (north) side of the road.  Located on the Straits of Mackinac and Duncan Bay in upper Lake Huron, this gem of a state park has seven miles of Great Lakes frontage. Its rich mixture of habitats is one of its strong points. Habitats close to the lake range from Great Lakes marshes, to cobblestone and lake sand beaches, to open sand dunes, to inter-dunal wetlands. Inland habitats are forested, ranging from dry maple, beach, and oak forests, to moist northern white cedar and lowland conifer swamps. The park offers modern camping facilities, rustic cabins, marked hiking and skiing trails, and a rich diversity of plants and animals. The seven miles of marked hiking trails pass through diverse habitats and offer hikers great wildlife viewing opportunities. Some of the best wildlife watching in the park awaits those who are willing to take a map and compass and set off on their own into the wildness that this special site has to offer.  This park offers superb bird watching opportunities due to its rich and diverse habitats. The swamps and wetlands in the low, wet areas along Lake Huron are good places to see ducks, geese, egrets, herons, and even the elusive American bittern. Several species of gulls, the rare black tern and common tern, plus the Caspian tern, can be seen working these wetlands and extensive shorelines for food. The park’s coastal habitats have a number of threatened and endangered plants such as Houghton’s goldenrod, Pitcher’s thistle, and dwarf lake iris. Many orchid species including the Calypso and ram’s head orchids are found in the moist white cedar habitats. Carnivorous (insect-eating) pitcher plants are common here, but you’ll have to get off the trails to find them. Look for their tall and beautiful, deep red flowers in mid to late summer in wetland habitats in the park. Colorful speckled brook trout may be seen in Little Billy Elliot’s Creek during late summer, and concentrations of black bass are often found in the weed beds of Duncan Bay near the campground. Bobcats are common in the interior of the park. Although these shy and reclusive predators are rarely seen, campers sometimes hear them screaming at night. The scream is a normal call for the bobcat, but it can definitely catch your attention if you’ve never heard it before.
