Mount Curwood, elevation 1,978 feet (603 m), in L'Anse Township, Baraga County is the second highest point in the U.S. state of Michigan. Mt. Curwood is a part of the Huron Mountains range.

Named in honor of Michigan author James Oliver Curwood, Mt. Curwood was long designated as Michigan's highest point until a resurvey in 1982 with modern technology determined that nearby Mount Arvon is actually 1,979 feet (603 m) high - one foot taller than Mount Curwood.
