My boyfriend and I visited as campers August 15-17. Our campsite was quite large and was very well shaded with trees. This also provided great rain coverage when it rained early Saturday morning. We hiked the 1.7 mile Copper Falls trail and took several photos of the beautiful waterfalls and rapids. We also did the 2.5 mile north trail hike... More

After a little internet searching my wife and I decided to call in here on our way south from visiting 'the lake'. You first see Loon Lake at the end of the road leading to the state park. What a beautiful setting. There is a beach with benches and a designated swimming area. Great for visiting families. A Restroom block... More

This is a gorgeous state park and a beautiful place to camp and hike. The scenic falls, the secluded camp sites, the nice little beach, the loon and crane calls in the morning and the barred owls at night.....it's definitely worth spending some time at Copper Falls. Bring plenty of bug spray and a camera and you may want to... More

A wonderful hike here is a great way to spend the afternoon. It's a relatively easy hike, but it's got several sets of stairs. For those who have difficulty with them: just take your time, bring water, and stop when you need to. Don't forget your camera - LOTS of angles to see the falls!

I have been to Copper Falls several times and loved it each time. The hike is 1.7 miles which is easy for just about everyone. We had teens along so it was super easy for them. But my kids were fairly young the first couple of times we visited and they didn't have any issues at all. They always had... More

Beautiful park! The trails are well marked & maintained. The hike around the Falls is not difficult & it is beautiful! The way the trail winds around, you get to see the Falls from so many different angles. Everyone we saw was enjoying themselves! The water is a dark color & foams at it tumbles over the Falls. It made... More

We visited on an overcast, cool day which made it an ideal time to visit. There were some mosquitoes, but not nearly as bad as it may have been on a warmer, nicer day. No matter the kind of day it is, the park is remarkable. We made the 1.7 mile loop and the entire journey had great views. I... More

I've been planning this trip for months and I went solo tent camping. The main reason I went solo was to have the time to take the pictures I wanted without anyone (wife or kids) complaining that there were too many mosquitoes or I was taking too long or it was too hot or too cold or whatever! It worked!!... More

Just visiting for the day, we hiked to see the falls on a cool afternoon. The hike was very nice with great views of the Bad River and two falls. The mosquitoes were ferocious and we used bug spray with 5% Deet. However, I would recommend a much higher level as we continued to spray more on us during our... More
