Rainy, but still great

Perfect length walk to be fun but not overly difficult. Great day for or teen and our young one. Lots of deer, birds, and chipmunk to look at. Very lovely.

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.

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.

Super fun place to take kids. Two hikes with beautiful scenery. One is 1.7 miles and the other is 2.5. Easy terrain. Enough to see to keep the kids engaged. Bring LOTS of bug spray. Mosquitoes are terrible!

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
