Cheboygan County is a county in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the population was 26,448. The county seat is Cheboygan[1].

The name of the county shares the same origin at that of the Cheboygan River, although the precise meaning is no longer known. It may have come from an Ojibwe word zhaabonigan meaning "sewing needle". Alternatively, the origin may have been "Chabwegan," meaning "a place of ore."[2] See List of Michigan county name etymologies‎.

The county boundaries were set off in 1840 and county government organized in 1853.[3]
