Following River Road west from the main light in Oscoda is Riverbank Park. Located on the left just prior to the AuSable River bridge, this small park has several short paved trails and easy access along the river. A variety of conifers, hardwoods, vines, and shrubs offer food, shelter, and nesting habitat for many species. Warblers frequent the area. Woodpeckers, thrushes, and nuthatches thrive here along with many waterfowl along the river. A small bayou at the end of one trail offers seclusion for Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers and several duck species.
