The day we went it was raining and the mosquitos were out. We had lunch at the brewery/resturant (which was very good) in hopes that the rain would stop it didn't. So we put on our ponchos, got an umbrella and headed to the falls. Even in the rain it was beautiful. Both my husband and I got bitten about... More

We went on a weekend so there were many folks there. They charged $9.00 for a one day pass. The upper falls were the better of the two. A walkway is provided. The mosquitos were many.

The view is fabulous. There are quite a few stairs, but well worth the view and adventure. The sound of the falls alone is inviting. A must do and see!!! Bring the skeeter dope!

This exceptional park is very well maintained with lots of outdoor activities available. It is a unique landmark well worth the trip. One caution during summer - bring lots of bug spray and consider wearing a bug net if you plan on hiking (especially through the spruce forest off the main path around the river & falls).

We loved our trip to the falls. It's a day trip away from Mackinac, but well worth it! We enjoyed all the view points on this short (well paved) hike. Upper Falls has a couple areas you can climb down to see different views of the falls. And the Lower Falls has a reasonably priced boat rental you can take... More

We figured this park (it rhymes with phenomenon) was a good place to sightsee en route from Macinac Island to Pictured Rocks. It was that, but is a good destination in and of itself. We got to the Lower falls first. It's a short walk from your car and if you want you can rent a rowboat and poke around... More

The Falls are beautiful... They are 94 steps down but they are well worth it! Its also a nice little walk along the trail to get there. The park cost nine dollars for a day pass but I think its worth it. They also have a great restaurant/brewery there, so once your done with the falls you can relax (and... More

A decent drive but we'll worth it. Beautiful views of the Upper Falls along the scenic paths. If you like figuring out tree species there's a lot of that too. The lower falls are four miles down the road and are more aimed towards renting a canoe and adventuring around the falls. There's two souvenir stands and a brewery at... More

One can make as much or little exercise of this as they wish. the upper falls are a short walk from the parking lot and then if you wish to see them up-close there are stairs to walk. then if you wish to see the lower falls you may hike the 4 miles and the bus will come pick you... More

We booked 6 days at the park during the 4th of July week back in April. I was happy to get a spot near the restrooms, which was not a good idea. The door on the bathroom didn't align with the frame and banged every single time someone went in or out. VERY ANNOYING needless to say. Oh, then there... More
