Welcome to Montmorency County - Home of Michiganís Elk Herd!


Montmorency County is located in Michiganís great "Up-North" in the northeast section of the Lower Peninsula. It was named after Count Montmorency, a valiant fighter for the Colonies in the Revolutionary War. It was first platted in 1840 and officially was organized in 1881.

The county seat is located at Atlanta, which is in the center of the county at the junction of M-33 and M-32.

Montmorency County remains one of the more remote and untouched areas of Michigan, with over one third of it belonging to the Thunder Bay River State Forest, which contain the headwaters of Thunder Bay River, a fly-fisherman's paradise!

The famous Michigan Elk herd roams here, about five to six hundred strong. The area also contains many beautiful lakes, including Clear Lake just north of Atlanta, which includes a state park.

Two other prominent communities include the resort area of Lewiston, situated on Twin Lake, and Hillman, situated on the Thunder Bay River, at the Countyís eastern border.

If you like the great outdoors, recreational opportunities abound in Montmorency County, any time of the year. Címon up and see it for yourself!
