The Oscoda area is not just for sports fans, however. It has museums, specialty stores, antique stores and good restaurants. Autumn is a fabulous time to enjoy driving the back roads, hunting for antiques and taking photographs of the gorgeous fall colors. The River Road National Forest Scenic Byway is a good way to tour the region. It’s a 22-mile, two-lane paved highway that runs along a country road known as River Road, roughly paralleling the south bank of the scenic Au Sable River. A few of the attractions along the way include:

The Lumbermens’ Monument Visitors Center – the nine-foot bronze statue dedicated to Michigan’s lumbering days sits high on a bluff overlooking the river. The center also has outdoor exhibits and picnic tables.

Eagles Nest Overlook - one of the most famous overlooks on the Huron National Forest is at Eagle's Nest. The “Nest” is just west of the visitor center and has been occupied by a pair of bald eagles since 1985. Bring binoculars for a better look into the nest. Many summer days, the eagles can be seen soaring high over Cooke Pond.

Iargo Springs – The Springs lies adjacent to River Road and has been used since pre-settlement days as a source of drinking water. Tradition has it that government surveyors named this site in the 1840s, having gotten the name from the local Indians who used the location for tribal powwows. The Indians believed the springs held mystical powers. Europeans have visited the springs since the early 1900s. The Forest Service is working on this site to restore it to its original atmosphere.
