Fairview - Comins Township Population: 2000() 1990() Change()

Comins Township is located in the near-northeast corner of Oscoda County. It consists of a mixture of hilly, fertile farmland to the west and the Huron National Forest to the east, and includes a few private lakes, camps and ranches. Its largest community is Fairview, situated at the north junction of M-33 and M-72, about nine miles northeast of Mio. The Oscoda County Fairgrounds are located here, north of 72 on Caldwell Road, just past the township park on beautiful Smith Lake, a great place to swim and picnic.

Fairview was founded in 1883 by W. L. Bond. Its station on the Au Sable & Northwestern Railroad during the lumber era assured the community’s permanence. Township offices are located here, along with several stores and restaurants. The Township was named after Coolige Comins, one of the founding fathers of Mio and Oscoda County. A small narrow gauge railroad reminiscent of the lumber era, which is open on weekends, can be found about 3 miles south of Fairview, off County Road 601.
