We stayed a night and really enjoyed the park. The 1.7 mi loop around the falls was perfect for our young kids. We had a secluded site (29) which we enjoyed. Beware of mosquitos - they come out in force.

This is by far my favorite place to go for a walk/hike. There is not a significant amount of elevation, the walk is relatively easy. Foot for foot, the most scenic loop that I have ever been on. I am a huge fan of Wisconsin's State Park system, and in my opinion this is my favorite from a scenery standpoint.... More

We stayed at this campground for one night and the campground was wonderful! All of them were well spaced out so that each site had a good amount of privacy. We stayed in site 8 and loved it. It was right across from one of the small bathrooms, but we didn't have any issues with increased people-traffic because of the... More

We were traveling with 3 generations of family members, a 7 year old, a couple of teenagers, parents and a grand parent. We all enjoyed our afternoon at the falls. My fitbit indicated 36 flights of stairs after our hike, but we went to the top of the observation tower. It was quite a hike, but we all liked it.... More

Morning hike on an overcast cool day in June was surprisingly scenic and bug free. The Doughboy trail is well maintained and is achievable by most hikers. Longer and more challenging trails are available. The picturesque falls and rock formations are well worth the visit.

This clearly a beautiful park, unfortunately, we had planned to hike here the last day of vacation, on our way him from Bayfield. We couldn't avoid the rain. It was going to rain all day, so we grabbed our rain jackets and stopped anyway. Despite getting thoroughly soaked, we walked the Doughboy Trail and saw two of the three falls... More

It was an enjoyable hike around the falls, absolutely gorgeous trail. I wish we would have been able to spend more time there, but we were just passing by and wanted to stretch our legs.

Copper Falls is another clean and scenic state park in Wisconsin. I visited with my wife and daughter. The employee who greeted us as we entered the park was very helpful, telling us the best place to park and walk to view the two waterfalls. The walk did require some stairs, but if you follow the entire path you get... More

Made a side trip over to Copper Falls Sate Park while we were visiting the UP of Michigan. I am so glad we did! There are alot of great falls and parks in Michigan, but I think this park was my favorite of our vacation. Lovely trail that takes you down both sides of the river and across several bridges...
