Presque Isle County is a county in the Lower peninsula in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the population was 13,376. The county seat is Rogers City.[1]

Both the county and Presque Isle Township are named for Presque Isle (literally, "almost an island") which is French for "a narrow peninsula".[1] A large part of the township consists of that peninsula, with Lake Huron on the east and Grand Lake on the west and narrows strips of land connecting it to the mainland at the north and south ends. The community of Presque Isle is situated near the center of this peninsula.

The county was set off on April 1, 1840 and a county government was first organized in 1871. The government was re-organized in 1875[1]
