Chikaming Township is beautifully located in scenic southwestern Michigan on the shores of Lake Michigan a few miles north of the Indiana/Michigan border starting at Exit 6 on I-94.
The Township's character is largely defined by its attractive natural features. The most significant of these is the Lake Michigan shoreline, with its wooded sand dunes and expansive beaches.
Chikaming Township provides both medium and upper-class housing units, lake front cottages and single family homes. The Township has zoned very few lots for light industrial use and has become primarily a residential community.
