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

We had a picnic lunch here – lots of great spots for that or there is an option to eat at their little café. We did the hike up to the look-out tower and a 2 mile loop. The hike to the look-out was probably not worth it. The rails extended about 5 ½ feet up and they weren’t spaced... More

First trip to Copper Falls State Park even though I live only two hours away. What an amazing experience. I've traveled extensively and this park stands against any place I have been in terms of natural beauty. The Copper Falls is great but the Brownstone Falls, with the rainbow created, is awe inspiring.

The kind of small city where people still greet each other as they pass by. The camping there is unmarked. The smell of clean air and pure water. I highly recommend hiking, and there is enough sights to see that a day will be filled. Many nature areas within a hours drive. Bring your bike!

This is one of the prettiest state parks in Wisconsin. The entire loop is a pretty good hike but the trails are well maintained and the time and effort pays big dividends. The many falls and gorges leaves one with the feeling they have really discovered they left another part of the country. We live only about an hour away... More

Beautiful morning walk through the state park. Worth the hike to see all nature and relax in views. We went for a morning walk and would go back.

We really enjoyed Copper Falls State Park. They have done a wonderful job of building and keeping up the trail around the two falls in the park. The falls are very nice and you several great views of the falls. Nice areas to have picnics. You can buy single day entrance or a yearly pass.
