Cedarville and Hessel, Michigan


The Clark Township Board of Trustees meet on the 3rd Wednesday
of every month at 7:00 PM at the Township Offices on North Blind Line Road

Located in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula, Clark Township comprises the two waterfront settlements of Cedarville and Hessel, a 17-mile stretch of pristine shoreline, and the 36-island archipelago known as the Les Cheneaux Islands.

The northern shore of Lake Huron, including Clark Township, has been referred to as "One of the Last Great Places" in the northern hemisphere.

Many of the people who call this place home trace their lineage back to the original founding families of the early 1800's; others have come here more recently to visit and decided to stay. We are also blessed with a large multi-generational seasonal population, whose families have helped to shape the history and development of Clark Township.

Together, we are a community with much in common - we love the outdoors and our natural surroundings. We enjoy boating, hunting and fishing, walking and bicycling, gardening, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. We treasure our artisans and creative people, our library, schools and cultural events. We have an abundance of service organizations and a tremendous spirit of volunteerism.

The Les Cheneaux Islands Area has a traditional economy of tourism and related service businesses, a heritage of wooden boats and boatbuilding, and a multitude of artisans and craft workers. We are interested in diversification and welcome new additions to our business sectors.

Come join us!
The Public Restrooms located at the Fire Hall will close for the season on Thursday, October 15, 2015.  They will re-open in May, 2016.
