Laingsburg is a city in Shiawassee County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 1,283 at the United States 2010 census.
Laingsburg is a former agricultural community that transitioned over the 1990s into a bedroom community for Lansing, the state capital. The town itself is small, but the community includes a geographically large area including three man-made lakes (Victoria and Scenic Lakes and Lake Ovid), one natural lake (Round Lake), and a large rural track. Lake Ovid is part of a 2000+ acre Sleepy Hollow State Park. The community is unified by common postal service (zip code 48848) and school service.
Laingsburg was named for Dr. Peter Laing, who operated a local tavern.
