Pelkie is an unincorporated community in Baraga County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The community is on the Sturgeon River in the northeast part of Baraga Township at 46°48′48″N 88°38′11″W / 46.81333°N 88.63639°W / 46.81333; -88.63639.
Pelkie was settled by French Canadian woodsmen in about 1885, and was first known as “King’s Landing” and was renamed Pelkie after an early settler.
