the park has a loop trail along the Bad River where you get views of two different water falls- Copper Falls & Brownstone Falls. Take the time & hike the full loop from the concession stand & back. There is a handicap access road with...More
You would never know what beauty is there unless you park your car and take a hike! Not a hard hike to do but has some hills and sights! Would be beautiful all seasons. I’m guessing the main trail would be closed in the winter...More
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.
This is a gem in northern Wisconsin. We did the 2.5 hour drive north to enjoy the fall colors and check out this place that we heard about a few years ago. It rained on the entire drive and throughout our 2 hour visit to...More
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
We stopped by mid-week so there were few people. This is a gorgeous state park and the waterfalls are amazing! We stopped by a few other falls on this trip but they were not as spectacular as all of the falls in this park. The...More
We visited the park on a Wednesday, so while there were a few people there, it definitely felt like we had the park to ourselves. We did the Doughboy loop, which was a 1.7 mile hike around the falls. It wasn't too rigorous, but the...More
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!
We are camping at Copper Falls State Park in a couple weeks with our toddler, for two nights/three days. We plan on spending time at the state park and enjoying it's beauty, but don't want to miss any other must see's in the immediate area (within an hour or two drive). It's our first trip to the Northwoods and would love to see some things that embrace the natural beauty of the area, and that are toddler friendly. We are already considering a cruise of the Apostle Islands, and I've been...More

weather permitting, consider taking the ferry out to madeline island...... go to big bay town beach (free)... take a drive around the island.... walk around the town area.... the island itself isn't terribly scenic, but the beach is actually pretty awesome.... in bayfield, check out the maritime museum... there's also one in cornucopia town, about a half hour away from bayfield... museum isn't too impressive, but it is free.... hike along the coastal trail (as much as feasible with a...More
Copper Falls State Park to Milwaukee (3 Replies)
This Sunday, I'll be driving back from Copper Falls State Park to Milwaukee downtown. Wondering if someone has a recommendation for a stop-over town in between for staying over Sunday night. A nice and quaint town closer to Milwaukee than the State Park. Thanks in advance.

Beaver Dam? Closer to Milwaukee, Cedarburg?
Which area of WI for fall hiking/colors? (6 Replies)
We just returned from a great trip of hiking and enjoying the fall colors and we want to try to make it an annual thing. We just visited Copper Falls State Park, Porcupine Mtns, and Black River Scenic Byway. Now I am thinking (and dreaming) ahead to next fall. Since it would be just a long weekend (4 days), we don't want to drive too far. We've been to other areas of the UP and we've also been to Door County. Also not interested in southern WI for this trip since we live close to there and...More

I can't help with the Superior area. Marinette county, have been to many of the falls, some are in county parks which would require a day pass of $3 per day. You could get to more than one park in a day, some are not that far apart. Lacrosse is a beautiful area, we stayed in a hotel on the Mississippi and took a boat tour. If you are interested in bike riding, also check out Sparta.
