Bring the camera and enjoy the walk through nature and waterfalls that are the highest in the state. Pack a picnic lunch or hit the beach and make a day of it. It's a great park!!

The thundering water is amazing, considering that the surrounding land is so flat. The walk from the parking lot is very short. The trails are well marked.

A nice stopping place on the way to Duluth. The waterfalls are a must see, if you are in this area or even if you are in Duluth and want to try a new site. The 165ft waterfall is the highest in WI. It was hot when we were there and it was nice to take a dip in the lake after we saw the falls. The beach was a nice reddish sand that made the water look dark. We drove a mile south to see the smaller waterfall and it was very impressive as well. There are lots of picnic tables, restrooms, water and places to camp

Great way to spend a day, you can either park near the two waterfalls or take a nice 3 mile nature walk to view, either way it's well worth the trip. Big Manitou Falls is the highest waterfall in Wisconsin, it's amazing to see! Little Manitou Falls is amazing as well. There is a beach to swim at and plenty of picnic tables to enjoy a picnic lunch.

It has a gorgeous lake and a sandy beach. There are picnic tables and grills, volleyball pits, bathrooms and changing rooms, a building that can be rented for parties, a camp ground. Stay a week or for just an afternoon. The kids will love it. Take some food with you as there aren't any restaurants nearby. It is a bit out of the way, but worth it. Buy an annual State Park pass and visit often.
