The upper and lower falls are the coolest thing I've ever seen. The water is this amazing brown color due to the minerals in the water. So much water and power from numerous falls. If you've never been to the Upper Peninsula the falls should be #1 on your list.

The sites, perfect. The staff, awesome. The views? Well, you'd be hard pressed to find better. Besides the horrible rain storm, I cannot think of anything bad about our visit.

We've been here before, but will probably come back sometime. The park is well kept and the trails to the falls are fun if a little challenging, lots of steps. New activities include a boat trip which is a nice addition to the park.

The state park is well maintained and the walkways to the falls are excellent as are the viewing areas. Tannic acid in the water creates golden brown waterfalls that are gorgeous.

This trip we visited both the Lower Falls and the Upper Falls. Both involve some walking and the upper falls includes lots of steps. But the effort is worth it!

It's an easy paved walk to see the upper and lower falls. It's a large park and the falls are in different parking areas. Take the time to see both.

This State Park provides easy walks to both the upper and lower falls. The walk ways are paved and in the shade. There are concession stands at both and clean, though not fancy restrooms. The falls are worth the drive and walk to see - excellent beauty!

We parked at the upper falls and walked to the scenic overlook not far away. It was a big beautiful water fall. There were people climbing over the fence to get a closer look, but it didn't look safe and was clearly not allowed. Then we took the 4 mile hike to the lower falls. It was fairly challenging up...

Breathtaking views! If you go to the Lower falls you must take the boat over to the island and walk the path so you can see them up close. We think it is the best way to appreciate the lower falls. When seeing the Upper falls make sure to take the gorge overview, it is a lot of steps and... More
