Cheboygan Dam Closing for Repairs

Posted: Updated:
A popular spot for fisherman in Cheboygan County is closing for repairs.

The Department of Natural Resources say part of the bowl area at the Cheboygan Dam will be partially closed so work can happen along the riverbank.

Preparations start Thursday, July 10, and work begins Monday, July 14. It's unclear when the repairs will be finished.

Anglers can still access the bowl area using the South Street parking lot and stairs. They can use the north side of the bowl area using the spillway to gain entry.

Parking will also be able to part at the Lincoln Street boating access site. 

If you'd like more information about the Cheboygan Lock and Dam, please contact DNR Cheboygan Field Office manager Dave Stempky at 231-627-9011.
