Awesome camping experience! Everything at this park is great. The falls trails are a must see! Great ice cream stand and beach area as well. Will definitely camp here again!

We went here to see the waterfalls and weren't disappointed. We did bring mosquito repellent but it wasn't really necessary. Some points of the walk we're handicap accessible but others had stairs. Nice concession stand at the end of the 1.7 mile loop we took.

This is a little off the beaten path. We took a drive from Ironwood, MI, it was about 30 mins one way. It is a WI state park, so you will need an entry ticket (unless you have a year sticker, currently at $38 for...More

We stopped here on the way up to Apostle Islands and were glad we did. Hidden in the middle of “the Northwoods,” the Doughboys trail passes 3 waterfalls and has the feel of the rugged Black Hills in South Dakota! The 1.7 mike trail is...More

We camped here in our motorhome in mid July. It is a gorgeous park with beautiful trails and waterfalls. The lower falls trail from the campsite was a little rustic. We ended up walking back along the road to avoid the bugs and mosquitoes. The...More

Spent 2 nights camping in Copper Falls State Park. There are approx. 60 campsites available (25 of which have electric hook up). Showers are available. Ancient lava flows, deep gorges and at least 3 waterfalls make this a very scenic park. A rustic cabin for...More

I haven't been to Bayfield and only visited Ashland for a part of a day a few years ago. I can't recommend any hotels, but if you are into sightseeing there are lots of things to see in the area.
