Cheboygan State Park is a 1,250-acre (5.1 km2) state park in Cheboygan County, Michigan.[1] Lighthouse enthusiasts can see the remains of the 1859 Cheboygan Point Light plus a distant view of Lake Huron's Poe Reef Light, some six miles to the northeast.[2]

The park offers trails ranging in length from one-half mile to one and three-quarters miles for hikers, mountain bikers, and cross-country skiers. Trails both skirt Lake Huron and plunge into the remoter interior areas.
