Oscoda Township, Naturally

 
Welcome to Oscoda Township. Welcome to a place where the opportunities for recreation and relaxation naturally abound. Set peacefully along the shores of beautiful Lake Huron and the mighty AuSable River, Oscoda offers more than 120 square miles of pure Michigan. 

From canoeing to sunbathing, the natural destinations of our community provide activities for water enthusiasts of all varieties. For visitors whose interests are more land-oriented, Oscoda's downtown district includes an assortment of eclectic shopping and renown restaurants. And lovers of history and the outdoors alike know Oscoda as the home of the famous Lumberman's Monument located in the Lake Huron National Forest.

Oscoda's natural resources have always played an important role in the community, even as local industry has changed over the years. The area was first settled in the late 1860s. Originally named, AuSable, the town was renamed based on the writings of Henry Schoolcraft, who named it after the American Indian words "Ossim" and "Muscoda," meaning "Pebbly Prairie." Oscoda played a major role in the distribution of lumber on the Great Lakes during the lumbering era. Today, our primary industry is tourism thanks to the abundance of year-round recreational activities available to residents and visitors, such as camping, fishing, hunting, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and more.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the beauty, the amenities and the fun of Oscoda Township. We welcome you to enjoy all our community has to offer...naturally.
