Engadine, Michigan is a small Upper Peninsula town in lower west Garfield Township, Mackinac County.

As an unincorporated community, Engadine has no defined borders, but it is the populated area concentrated at the intersection of Hiawatha Trail (H-40) and M-117, including the area to the north, around Stimich Road, and a couple of streets to the south, as well as east and west along Hiawatha Trail. US-2 passes one mile south of Engadine, at the southern terminus of M-117.

The nearest incorporated municipality is the village of Newberry, about twenty miles to the north. There are no nearby cities, the closest being Manistique, St. Ignace, Munising, and Sault Ste. Marie. Other unincorporated communities within twenty miles of Engadine include Millecoquins (3.3 miles), Gold City (4.0 miles), Garfield (7.2 miles), Naubinway (7.2 miles), Corinne (9.3 miles), Gilchrist (9.7 miles), Garnet (13.7 miles), Curtis (16.2 miles), Rexton (16.9 miles), Dollarville (17.3 miles), and Caffey Corner (19.6 miles).

Engadine began as a lumber settlement, with further development spurred by the railroad. When the Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Sault Ste. Marie Railway (Soo Line) built a siding there, the settlement became known as Kennedy Siding. On August 25, 1889, a post office was established under the name of Kennedy, with Richard D. Conway as postmaster. When a railroad station was established, the first railroad agent, Sam Peterson, renamed the station on December 2, 1893, and the post office followed suit. Peterson, a native of Switzerland, chose the name Engadine for a scenic Swiss valley that he was familiar with.
