Okemos is an unincorporated community in Meridian Charter Township, Ingham County in the U.S. state of Michigan. Local government is provided by the township. The population was 21,369 at the 2010 census.

The settlement of Hamilton was founded in 1839 by Freeman Bray as a trading point with the surrounding Ojibwa people and as a farming community. In 1859, one year following the death of Chief John Okemos (on whose treaty lands the community was built), the area was renamed Okemos to honor the Native American chief.
It was originally a farming community but has been entirely absorbed as a Lansing suburb. The center of Okemos referred to by many as "The Four Corners," is located at the intersection of Hamilton and Okemos Roads. The most notable business is the Meridian Mall (located on M-43 Grand River Avenue), which is northeast of The Four Corners. The American novelist James Hynes was born in Okemos in 1955.
