Newkirk Township Population: 2000(719) 1990(586) Change(133)

Newkirk Township is located in the near north - western quarter of Lake County.

This double-sized township, (12 X 6 square miles), is basically an uninhabited area consisting of freshwater swamp, feeding the Baldwin River to the south, scrub brush, woods and an occasional farm. Half of the township is scattered in parts of the Pere Marquette State Forest. It is loaded with two-track trails and is a great place for riding RVís.

The Pine River cuts through its northeast corner, with access on State Road, the eastern border of the township, and western border of neigh - boring Dover Township. It contains half of the town of Luther, also located on State Road.

Historically, this area once contained one of the best tracts of mature white pine trees in Michigan -- completely harvested in the late 1800ís, after the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad built a line through the area.
