Destination guide

Pristine shoreline and rugged forest parks

Oscoda Township lies on the banks of Lake Huron at the mouth of the AuSable River. While staying in one of the Oscoda Township vacation rentals, you'll have many miles of pristine shoreline and rugged inland forest park to explore. Though small, the streets of downtown Oscoda are dotted with boutique shops and fine eateries, many of which have an emphasis on lake fish. The town was first founded in the mid-19th century and played a key role in the lumbering industry. These days, it focuses on tourism with year-round outdoor activities including fishing, hunting and winter sports.

Things to do

Learn about Oscoda's rich logging history

It's not all hiking and fishing in Oscoda Township. The Wurtsmith Air Museum opens during the summer months, and houses a museum with historical memorabilia in several hangers at a disused air base. Be sure to visit Lumberman's Monument, which chronicles the history of Oscoda's logging heritage through interactive displays and a replica of the old floating cook shacks. Near many Oscoda Township vacation rentals is the Iargo Springs, a flow of natural water that bubbles to the surface and can be seen from the long stretches of wooden boardwalk.


Hiking, kayaking and snowy adventures

Oscoda is a haven for outdoor adventure and the draw for most visitors. Spring through fall, you can grab a kayak or canoe rental to glide across Lake Heron spotting lake bird species along the way, or hike along the trails that crisscross through Huron-Manistee National Forests. Near to your Oscoda Township vacation rental, you can try to hook in a chinook salmon along their spawning runs or go duck hunting. Winter is arguably the best time to visit and sees adrenaline junkies motor along the 90 miles of Iosco County snowmobile trails.


Wrap up warm in winter

Oscoda and Lake Huron have a humid continental climate which sees hot summers and extremely cold winters. The best times to visit are spring and fall when the weather is warm, the skies are bright and clear, and hiking and kayaking around the lake and forests is at its most comfortable. The heat soars during summer, but refreshing dips in the lake can keep you cool. The temperature in winter regularly plummets to below minus 20, so wrap up when you head out for snowy activities. The Oscoda Township vacation rentals are always cozy and warm on your return.

Natural features

Gliding herons, snapping turtles and noisy bullfrogs

Lake Huron is one of North America's Great Lakes which hold more than 20% of the world's fresh water supply and supports an astonishing number of flora and fauna. It would simply be impossible to list every creature in and around the lake, but notable species include great blue herons which glide across the water's surface, secretive Canada lynx which slink around the lake's bays at night, and moose that amble through the forest parks. Common snapping turtles swim through the lake looking for prey, and noisy American bullfrogs croak loudly in the wetland areas.
