Mackinac Island, MI Overview

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 18.84 square miles (48.80 km), of which 4.35 square miles (11.27 km) is land and 14.49 square miles (37.53 km) is water.Interestingly, the City of Mackinac Island not only exists on the island of the same name, but also takes in the entirety of nearby Round Island, situated in the Straits of Mackinac immediately to the south. Round Island is currently uninhabited and is owned by the U.S. Forest Service in its entirety, and is managed as part of the Hiawatha National Forest.

The Michigan Legislature created the City of Mackinac Island in 1899 via L.A. 437 of 1899 as a “special charter city.” At that time, all of nearby Round Island was included in the corporate limits, although for reasons not currently clear. While all of Mackinac Island, the landform, is located within the corporate limits of the City of Mackinac Island, 82 percent of the island’s landmass is owned by the State of Michigan and managed by the Mackinac Island State Park Commission (MISPC), so that the City itself has direct jurisdiction over only 18 percent of the island, the remainder being under direct control of the Commission. The City and the Commission do, however, work together on the many issues affecting both the City and the State Park, such as the longtime ban on most motorized vehicles on the island.
