Situated near the intersection of M-134 and M-129 in Clark Township, Cedarville, Michigan is an unincorporated town in Mackinac County, in the southeastern portion of the Upper Peninsula.

Detour is 23.9 miles east, St. Ignace is 32.1 miles southwest, and Sault Ste. Marie is 34.7 miles north of Cedarville, and the unincorporated community of Hessel is about two miles west.

As Cedarville is unincorporated, there are no defined borders, but the neighborhood along M-134 and south to Lake Huron comprises its residential and commercial area. The Cedarville post office serves much of Clark Township and portions of eastern Marquette Township, as well as some of the Les Cheneaux Islands.

The islands are a group of thirty-six islands, some inhabited, along the Lake Huron coast, about thirty miles northeast of Mackinac Island and thirty-five miles south of Sault Ste. Marie. The communities of Hessel and Cedarville offer marinas, camping facilities, lodging, restaurants, and shopping for island residents, and the Les Cheneaux Historical Association operates its Historical Museum and Maritime Museum, both of which are situated in Cedarville. Les Cheneaux Culinary School is also located in Cedarville.

Cedarville began as a lumber town in 1884. Besides the lumber harvested in the immediate area, it served as a port for the transport of lumber and wood products, particularly cedar, from the surrounding region. A post office was established in Cedarville on July 14, 1888, with William Clarke as postmaster.

The focus of this category is on the village of Cedarville, although any online resources with a Cedarville postal address would be appropriate here, including any businesses, industries, schools, places of worship, organizations, attractions, and events. Local sports teams and leagues, as well as recreational facilities and programs, may also be listed here.
