Brevort Township, in Mackinac County, lies mostly within the borders of the eastern unit of Hiawatha National Forest. The township also includes part of the Mackinac Wilderness, a designated wilderness consisting of more than 12,000 roadless acres of woodlands, streams, and sand dunes accessed from Michigan highway M-123. Within Brevort Township lies the unincorporated community of Moran.

The township was named after Henry Brevort (or Brevoort), a surveyor assigned to subdivide the area in 1845. It covers 98.8 square miles and includes public beaches, forest retreats, and a multitude of trails designated for hiking, ORVs, and snowmobiles. It is also the home of Brevort Lake, a largely undeveloped lake of 4,233 acres and known for bass, pike, perch, and walleye.
