Ive been here a few times but me and my wife decided to go in the winter. Be very careful because there isnt much open in the town and its really only open for the snow mobile riders. We found a nice little cabin to stay in right on Lake Superior which was pretty cool because it was completley iced... More

We thought this park was incredibly well maintained and had a lot of informational displays on and off the trails that added a lot to our overall understanding of Michigan trees, forests, wildlife and of course the mighty Falls and their role in the timber industry. We highly recommend this as a stop on the way to Whitefish Point or... More

This is one of the must see places in Upper Peninsula. We went there to see the waterfalls and we loved it. Specially the upper falls is spectacular. For people with a bit of interest in photography,the upper falls observation deck is a place to spend time ! I got some great shots !!

We really enjoyed our day at the state park. We started at the lower falls and hiked to the upper falls (4 miles). The trail is moderately difficult with lots of mud, tree roots and rocks. Since we started very early in the morning there weren't very many people on the trail. The upper and lower falls are very beautiful... More

We visited both the Lower and Upper falls on our recent trip to the UP. If you go to the Lower Falls, you can rent a boat to see it closer (we didn't but it looked really nice) otherwise you are kind of far away. The Upper Falls are spectacular and you get up really close to them. Great for... More

We traveled with four generations of family- water is high and flowing well on both falls. We enjoyed eating at the brewery and the snack shoppe.

A nice park to visit, with some good walking/hiking areas. The falls were certainly different, since I've never seen such brown and amber water. Not worth a special trip, but nice to see if you are in the region.

The falls are quite pretty, and you can rent row boats to row around and experience the nature. I think it was $7 per person to rent a boat. The gift shop has some nice things.

Visited as part of a quick 2 day excursion and wish that I could have had a whole 2 days just to spend there. The park is gorgeous and accessible. Plenty of trails and sites to see. We visited for the upper and lower falls given our time constraints and were easily able to get both in. The upper falls... More
