Welcome to Chippewa Township

Chippewa Township is located in the county of Mecosta, in the Central Michigan area of the Lower Peninsula. It is roughly an hour north of Grand Rapids and 45 minutes west of Mount Pleasant. The township is both a rural agricultural and recreational community. Chippewa Township is the home of Chippewa Lake, the largest natural lake in Mecosta County. From boating to swimming to fishing to snowmobiling, all-sport Chippewa Lake has plenty to offer locals and visitors, year ‘round. If you are a fan of small lakeside towns and lots of open country, Chippewa Township is waiting for you!

The Chippewa Township Offices will re-open for Township business on Monday, June 8th. Until further notice, hours of operation will be 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Monday – Thursday.  A mask is required for entering the Township Building! Township officials believe taking precautionary steps are the responsible steps a government must take to ensure the safety and well-being of the community and its employees.

Have a Great Summer & Stay Safe!

The Chippewa Township Board


The Chippewa Martiny Fire Department and Chippewa Fire Board regret to announce that the 2020 Annual Halloween Fire Department Open House has been canceled this year.

 Recently one of our Mecosta County Departments lost a long-time firefighter due to complications of Covid 19. His loss has reverberated through all of our communities with great sadness. He will be missed by many.

 Our Department’s Mission is “To Serve and Protect”. In staying within this mission it was decided that our communities’ AND Firefighters’ safety and health, are too important to take any unnecessary risks, at this time.

In advance, we would like to thank you for your understanding.
