List of rivers of Michigan

This is a list of Michigan rivers. This list includes only streams designated rivers although some may be smaller than those streams designated creeks, runs, brooks, swales, cuts, bayous, outlets, inlets, drains and ditches. These terms are all in use in Michigan. Michigan has over 300 named rivers. Several names are shared by different rivers; for example, there are 8 Pine Rivers and 7 Black Rivers. In four cases there are two rivers of the same name in one county. In these cases extra information such as alternate name or body of water they flow into has been added.
