Surrey Township is located in Clare County within the very heart of Michigan's lower peninsula. The Surrey Township hall is located in Farwell and houses our administrative offices and conference center.  Surrey is a fully functioning township. The township is equipped with a paid-on call fire department and a rescue unit supported by a strong corps of volunteers. Township service positions include assessor, board of review, planning commission, zoning administrator and building inspection department.


Surrey has joined many other communities around the nation in adopting a "Rails to Trails" program. The Pere-Marquette Trail will eventually span from Midland to Reed City and then merge with the White Pine Trail to Cadillac. The trails, which are open across all of Farwell, provide outdoor fun all year round. During the spring and summer months, the trails are a perfect area for hiking and biking. In the winter months, the trails come alive with the sound of snowmobiles. Outdoor enthusiasts will find Surrey an absolute treasure during any season!

Since 1871 Surrey Township has maintained its industrial heritage. From its early days in the logging industry to supporting today's automotive industry, Surrey's citizens are a portrait of diligence and determination. Today's township is not only a great place to work, but also to live and play. The township includes numerous sub-divisions to fit any family lifestyle, four sparkling lakes, parks and trails, and fairgrounds found in the Village of Farwell.
