Mackinac County is a county in the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the population was 11,113. The county seat is St. Ignace. The county was formerly known as Michilimackinac County, and it was created as one of the first counties of the Michigan Territory in 1818.

The county's name is claimed to be a corruption of the French term "Michilimackinac," which referred to the Straits of Mackinac area as well as the French settlement at the tip of the lower peninsula.[1] See and compare List of Michigan county name etymologies, List of Michigan counties, and List of abolished U.S. counties.
