Came here on a weekday to find a geocache and chase some waterfalls. Was absolutely amazed at the beauty of this park which included three waterfalls, very nice trails, and beautifully paved walk areas and bridges. The fence structure was magnificent as well.

Copper Falls State Park in north central Wisconsin is beautiful for a fall color trip. The bright yellows and reds from maple, aspen and oak trees really 'pop', and make for a photographer's dream. We took a group of Boy Scouts and camped at the...More

Beautiful, beautiful state park. We went for the fall colors and waterfalls. We were not disappointed. Gorgeous day and view. The trails are not too strenuous. Definitely worth the price of admission.

We hiked the major trails and the are easy navigate and hike on. The falls are amazing, and they have great look outs to see the falls in their entirety. We spent an afternoon here and didn't come close to seeing everything.

Visiting from the Pacific Northwest, I was pleasantly surprised!! Did the Doughboy hike (1.7 mile loop) today. Great trail through the woods with beautiful waterfalls! What a gem! Really nice little walk!

The park is well-maintained and the signage to direct visitors to and around the Brownstone Falls and Copper Falls is informative. We especially liked the older pathways built by the men who served in WWI. Today, along the pathways there are several modern platforms to...More

Great hikes with falls after falls. A fair amount of up and down...some people along the trail remarked that breaks were necessary, so be aware of that if you have a tough time with stairs or don't usually hike. Lots of great views during a...More

If memory serves me correctly we researched before we went and they were not allowed in most places. I know we did not see any dogs on the trails we were on.
