  • A favorite stop at least a few times each year. My favorite in the Fall. You will love learning about the history of the lumbermen too! 
  • Was raining slightly so no hunting and did stop to look around and glad we did. Fantastic views of River and need shop and museum .. nice visit and we did not do the 200 plus stairs down to river ... 
  • The National Park Service has done a great job of displays around the monument. It has a few TVs going with info & games for the kids related to lumbering. There are also artifacts from the lumbering ...  read more »
  • Great place to take the family for a nice outdoor educational adventure! I’ve been here multiple times, it’s always fun. They parks department does a great job at maintaining and improving the park. There is a nice new stair case (a long ways down) that will take you to the river. Where you can see what the lumbermen used to stay on when on the river. Staff here is friendly and eager to tell you the history of the nation forest. Parking is close to the monument. The park has a lot of plaques that give you every little detail of a lumberman’s life, from his tools, to the dangers of the job. If you’re in the area I would definitely recommend stopping here for some great photos and education.
  • This whole experience was not only beautiful, but educational and kind of mind blowing! I would definitely recommend, going and learning the history of the lumber men. You get to learn the very details of life back then while on your adventure. Everything is very well maintained. It's also a stunning drive to get to the park. The stairs are worth the climb, the overlooks/sights you get are gorgeous! Absolutely breathtaking in some spots. The nature and scenery is peaceful and enjoyable. A must-visit little treasure in Oscoda!
  • This is one of my favorite places in the world! Yes "the world"! The view is awesome and it is the most peaceful place! Love the campground also!
  • Spectacular views, nice historical features. A great place to visit if you have the chance. There are lots of stairs involved, but the walk is worth it!
  • Fun sand dunes and amazing fresh water lake to swim in! Must go for a swim at the bottom of the dunes
