Never have seen the falls frozen, was worth the trip! As we drove to/from them the scenic drive was just as beautiful.

This is truly one of my favorite places in Michigan. I usually make it back at least once a year. The upper and lower falls are the key attractions, the upper falls being the larger of the two and the most photographed. Both falls are accessed with well a maintained trail that runs along the river bank through a serene... More

Tahquamenon Falls's serenity invigorates anyone who goes to the place. Just watching the waterfalls makes you feel good. Touching and plunging yourself in to the waters makes you feel superb. Aside from the water falls you also get to see parks preserve and conserve by the state's environmental bureau. If you go to this place, you can have your picnic... More

We picked a weekday to visit the falls in August, 2014. The walk to the upper falls is paved and there are viewing spots along the path. There are stairs going down to the river below the falls. A sign tells how many steps it is down to the bottom, remember there are the same number coming back up. There... More

15 Roadtrek Class B RVs descended on the Lower falls campground on January 22,2015 for a winter weekend camp gathering. The snowshoeing was spectacular to both falls. The staff was very accommodating and we enjoyed evening campfires and dinners at the brewpub by the upper falls. A wonderful winter weekend in the Upper Peninsula. Dick and Colleen Peura

We were delighted by a winter visit to this fascinating Michigan park. It's namesake falls were still running, but surrounded by striking ice flows and shoreside trees covered with frozen mist. The path to the upper falls was well cleared and packed, and easily covered in ordinary shoes or boots. Visiting the lower falls required snowshoes (available on free loan... More

My family visited the falls around Labor Day and although the weather was rainy and cold,the walk to the falls was on a paved path and beautiful to see this small fall.

we visited the Tahquamenon Falls twice this year, once in July and again in late October. Both were breathtaking and completely different from the other. The falls in the autumn look like a giant root beer float, taking on a copper hue and creating foam when they crash down. The autumn colors around the falls are spectacular. Great photos and...

Beautiful falls in the UP of Michigan. Not as cool as the falls in Yellowstone but still great to see in my home state. Lots of walking so be prepared with the correct shoes.
