We camped for five nights in Copper Falls State Park. Our campsite was a little small and we wish the North campground had their own shower facility, but otherwise, it's a nice park to camp. We camped in the South Campground where the shower was, but people from the North campground (where the RV's usually camp), kept coming over to... More

Nice park but falls is less tall due to years of erosion. Nice picnic area. Clean rest rooms. Staffed facility.

I'm 78 and managed the loop trail,over a mile,I had to take the stairs slowly as there are a lot of them and steep but it was worth it.We went after a big storm had washed out a few places but the rushing water was spectacular and you can see it from all of the trail.Several platforms are in better...

One of my favorite local places to visit. I usually try to visit later in the evening--last night I went up to the scenic look-out tower for sunset and I only encountered two other people out on the trails during my visit. They do such a great job of keeping the park inviting and clean. Can't wait to go back... More

Came for a few hours to hike and see the falls. WI state parks are so well kept with excellent facilities. The park was busy as it was a holiday weekend but you didn't feel crowded. Lots of steps, do not attempt to take a stroller. Fairly easy hike that took us a leisurely 2 hours for a 1.7 mile... More

Although it rained, we had a wonderful camping trip with many memories. A beautiful hiking trail, and great for kids/teens. There was lots of wildlife...deer, squirrels, toads and more. The campsites were spacious and semi secluded. The only complaint we had was there was no shower/flush toilet near the north campground where we stayed. We had to drive there.

The falls are beautiful and the park is well maintained but don't expect to have any quiet reflective moments. The park is busy, even in the middle of the week. Certainly recommend going once but there are other falls near by that are less traveled and a bit less Disney like.

A delightful state park; great scenery with the falls and gorges and wonderful hiking. Trails are well maintained, nothing terribly strenuous. The 1.7 mile hike around the falls was delightfully bug-free; the longer 2.5 mile hike was not. Dogs are welcome in sone areas, but do pay attention to where they are not. Bring a picnic lunch and your bug... More

This was a nice family hike with 2 small children to see the Falls. Easy access to the Falls and well maintained trails.
