Michigan’s Oak Beach County Park on Saginaw Bay – The Gathering Place

The first thing folks notice at Oak Beach County Park is just how large it is. Sitting on over 40 acres, it sports a beautiful beach, a playground, a pavilion for family gatherings. It even has several sets of well-maintained horseshoe pits. Across M25 is a modern campground with 55 sites featuring full services for camper and tent camping.

Beach on Saginaw Bay

It’s known as a great gathering place for horseshoe tournaments, family reunions, and even local government functions and picnics. It’s a central location between Caseville and Port Austin. Thus the location makes it a great place to gather for a swim or for kids to play on the beach.

You can find special events posted on the bulletin board in the camping area. Wi-Fi has been introduced, but they are still working the coverage areas out within the campgrounds.

Oak Beach Pantry

One handy aspect of the park is the proximity to the Oak Beach Panty Party Store. This place is the perfect spot to buy ice cream or stock up on ice and beer. Another store close by is Walt’s Market. A perfect place to get cookout supplies with their selection of meats and deli items.
