Around the margins, such as under Mackinaw City, Michigan, the Precambrian surface is around 4, feet (1, m) down.

Also, due to a late Precambrian failed rift running through the center of the basin, Michigan exhibits periodic basin-centered subsidence (Howell and van der Pluijm, ), creating accommodation space even during times of falling sea level.

The basin, mainly centered in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, includes parts of eastern Wisconsin, northeastern Illinois, northern Indiana, northern Ohio, part of Ontario, Canada, and part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The limestones, sandstones and shales, which dominate the Michigan Basin of the lower peninsula, are approximately million years old, some perhaps less.
