Bernthal Lake, Vassar State Game Area - Juniata Township

Welcome to Juniata Township

Established in 1851, Juniata Township is a small, rural municipality based on farming and forestry in Tuscola County, Michigan. As a "bridging" township, we maintain close ties to our local villages and cities, offering educational and emergency services from Reese, Vassar, the Village of Fairgrove and the City of Caro.

We are a municipality rich in history and well known for our well-established, modest sense of community.
