Cheboygan County is located at the northern tip of the lower peninsula. It covers 562,590 acres and is bordered on the north by Lake Huron. The Cheboygan County Marine Division has the responsibility of patrolling 44 inland lakes, 420 miles of streams, 34.5 miles of Lake Huron and 182.3 miles of inland lake shoreline. Cheboygan County is also the home of several of the largest inland lakes in the state and the 38 mile Inland Waterway, which are unique boating adventures for the boating enthusiast.


The Cheboygan County Snowmobile and ORV deputies patrol several hundred miles of roads and trails during their respective seasons including the Black Mountain Forest Recreation Area and the Pigeon River State Forest. The presence of these law enforcement officers is a necessary deterrent against speed and carelessness, major causes of Snowmobile and ORV accidents and fatalities.
