 From Black Lake, located southeast of the watershed in Presque Isle County, the Black River
courses approximately 10 miles to its confluence with the Cheboygan River. The water flow is
restricted significantly for 4.3 miles between Black Lake and the Alverno Dam due to rapids in
the river. Below the dam the shore widens and the river is shallow for about 2 3/4 miles, then
becomes wide and deep as it continues its course another 2 1/2 miles to merge with the
Cheboygan River.
