Ginger Bay Road runs adjacent to the South Bison Range located within Land Between the Lakes
. This large, growing herd began with just 19 bison brought from Theodore Roosevelt National Park in 1969. While driving down Ginger Bay Road, you will likely see a portion of the herd grazing in their pasture.
Standing watch at the beginning of Ginger Bay Road is a majestic, century-old oak tree that's hard to miss. While looking for bison, don't miss the numerous other types of wildlife such as deer, elk, and turkey that thrive in the park. Ginger Creek parallels this trail and has been known to wash out a portion of this road during heavy rains.
