Did you know that there have been over 200 reported Bigfoot encounters in the state of Michigan? Yeah, neither did I. If you're looking for an exact number, the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization has received a grand total of 221 reports. For comparison, our western neighbor, Wisconsin, only has 99 reports.

When it comes to the United States' favorite cryptid, it seems that Michigan is one of the hotspots for sightings and other encounters.

Before I keep going, I just want to note that you may have also heard the creatures referred to as Sasquatches. For the purpose of this article, let's just stick with Bigfoot because it's easier for me to spell.

Whether or not you believe in Bigfoot, it's still really entertaining to read about all of the times people claim they have come into contact with the creature. Below I'm going to go through Michigan county by county and detail the most interesting Bigfoot encounter that's been reported there.

So there you have it. Many people in Michigan believe that they've come into contact with a Bigfoot. Are you one of them? If you have a personal story about a time you've encountered a Bigfoot, we'd love to hear it!
