Antrim County is a county located in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of 2000, the population is 23,110. Its county seat is Bellaire6.

The name, Antrim, is taken from County Antrim in Northern Ireland. Antrim was originally named Meegisee, meaning eagle, which was the name of a Chippewa chief who signed the 1821 Treaty of Chicago and the 1826 Treaty of Mississinwas. The name Antrim was one of five Irish names given to renamed counties in 1843, supposedly in deference to the increasing number of settlers of Irish heritage in Michigan at that time. In the text of the 1843 legislative act, the name was misspelled as "Antim".

YMCA Camp Hayo-Went-Ha, the oldest USA summer camp that is on its original site, occupies about one square mile on the shore of Torch Lake in Central Lake Township. Boys first attended Hayo-Went-Ha (variant of Hiawatha) in 1904.
