My wife & I are moving to Oscoda & have a couple of questions.
What is the best cell phone service in the Oscoda area?
Is there a mobile home or RV park close by that has monthly rates where we can stay while looking for a home?
Thank you, Dick

I don't know the answers to either of your questions, but welcome to northern Michigan. I hope you'll like it up here.

Well, I can't speak for others, but personally I have used CellularOne for cell phone service for the past 3 yrs, but AT&T has bought them out, so I am thinking of switching to another service. If your bill is 1 day late AT&T charges a $10 fee. CellularOne never did that. There is also AllTell Cell out of Alpena. Old Orchard Park camp grounds has RV lots, with hookups. I don't know what the charges are, but I'm hearing that it is expensive. I looked in the book for a number. but it's not listed as Old Orchard, so the name may have changed. There are many, many homes for sale here. And many, many of them are well worth the asking prices. I have mine listed as well. I'm thinking of moving to the Alpena area. Arizona was my first wish, but real estate is so high there, I have decided to stay in this area. My needs are for a bigger home, and less yard. If you are not familiar with this area, you will love it once re-located here and settled in. The neighbors are great, and so is the lifestyle. If you are outdoors people, there will also be plenty for you's to do. If you need more information, feel free to ask. I'm sure someone here in town will have some answers.

Likewise welcome to beautiful Oscoda.
I use Verizon (have for years) and I am happy with them. They are also highly rated by Consumer Reports based on member feedback.
Herre is the URL for Old Orchard Park: http://www.oldorchardparkcampground.com/ .
It is a County (Iosco County) park.
The rates, etc. are on the web page.
There are also 2 RV Parks in Tawas and both are state run I think.
One is right on US-23 in the middle of town(very convenient to stores, etc. Tawas is approx. 20 miles South of Oscoda.
The other is on the point I think and I am not sure if they have large rig spots.
Check with the Oscoda Chamber of Commerce ( www.oscoda.com ) to see what information they have.
If you are planning on buying, this is a good time at the bottom of the real estate curve.
What brings you to Oscoda?

Thank you Shirley & chiliman for some answers to my questions. The main reason were moving to MI is to be closer to Kids, grandkids, & other relations. Besides, Mesa AZ with almost 1/2 million residents & about that many snowbirds each winter, its too busy. Originally were from Midland.

Phoenix huh? I'm down in Tucson and grew up in Oscoda! As far as cell phone service, you should go for Alltel. I've been with them for years without a problem. Avoid NPI Wirless like the plague (if they still exist). RV parks....hmmmmm......Old Orchard is always a nice place. It's about a 10 minute drive from downtown, but only a 2 minute drive from Desi's (best resteraunt in town). The owner's name is Tim Gianetti. Real nice guy.

Actually it is the worst resteraunt in the whole county.
best three are currently Hsings Garden,los tres amigos & the steak house behind big boys. unfortunately, all located in Tawas. Desi's has gone down hill steadily for a decade. there spaghetti sauce is horrible.. just ask them how they make it. really gross. and there steaks leave much to be desired. the only thing worth eating there is the nachos.. even the meat toppings are too runny and tasteless, expect a bathroom brake within the hour..
it sucks. when the air base was open and i was a kid everyone loved desis.. when i moved back it was a very big disappointment.
