Indian River is an unincorporated community located in Cheboygan County in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is a Census-designated place (CDP) used for statistical purposes and is not legally recognized as a municipality. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 2,008.
Because it is not an incorporated municipality, the boundaries were defined by the U.S. Census Bureau in consultation with local organizations and officials. However, the area included within the CDP may not exactly correspond with the area which locals recognize by that name. It occupies the eastern portion of Tuscarora Township.
Indian River is situated at the point where the Sturgeon River flows into Burt Lake and where the Indian River flows out of Burt Lake into Mullett Lake. Interstate 75 passes though the area with two interchanges nearby. Mackinaw City and the Mackinac Bridge are about 25 miles to the north and Gaylord is 28 miles to the south. Cheboygan is about 21 miles to the northeast on Michigan State Highway 27. Michigan State Highway 68 connects with U.S. Highway 31 at Alanson, 11 miles to the west and with Michigan State Highway 33 about 9 miles to the east. The Indian River provides a navigable channel between Burt and Mullett lakes..Web Sites and Links
