Map showing Indian Reservations in Michigan.

The Isabella Indian Reservation is the land base of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council, located in Isabella County in the central part of the U.S. state of Michigan. There are also some small parcels of off-reservation trust land in Standish Township, Arenac County, near Saginaw Bay, southeast of the city of Standish. Tribal lands are held in trust by the Federal government on the owners behalf. The tribe operates the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort Soaring Eagle Waterpark and Hotel in Mount Pleasant and the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino in Standish.

The Tribe entered into an agreement to expand its jurisdiction to enforce laws on its members. This expanded area is for law enforcement on its members only and not the Mt. Pleasant community as a whole.
