Old Orchard Park Campground

 
Oscoda Old Orchard Campground 
       We invite you to visit or stay in beautiful Old Orchard, which is one of the 
       largest campgrounds in Northeast Michigan. Located within the Huron-Manistee 
       National Forest,  along the River Road Scenic Byway, the park which is nearly 
       four miles long, overlooks Foote Pond, which formed after the construction of 
       Foote Dam in 1916, on the AuSable River. The park is open from March thru 
       November each year, with plenty out outdoor recreation opportunities for all three 
       seasons therein. 

       This public recreation facility is part of a Consumers Energy Hydroelectric Dam 
       Project licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and is operated 
       under the authority of the Township of Oscoda.

Fishing & Hunting

 
FISHING
The AuSable River provides excellent Bass, Walleye, Pike and Perch fishing! Pan fish are plentiful and can be caught anytime along the shores of the campground. Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon, Coho and Chinook Salmon are abundant in their spawning runs below Foote Dam, downstream from the campground.

HUNTING
Although there is no hunting allowed within the boundaries of the campground, there are thousands of acres of state and federal forests adjacent to the campground that provide a variety of game. An abundance of Oak, Evergreen, Birch and Poplar trees provide excellent feed and cover for deer, squirrel, rabbit, partridge and other game, and the sheltered waters of Foote Dam pond provides some of the best duck hunting in the area.

Plan to enjoy our wide variety of programmed recreational activities for the entire family:
  • Hayrides
