  • No picture or video can truly do this gorgeous place justice. Come here and explore. Dress for the weather; wear good hiking shoes; protect yourself from the insects. You'll have a lovely experience!
  • This is beautiful area for hikers, campers, and families to visit. The main walk around the falls is a 1.7 mile hike. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow. There are quite a few small hills and one or two spots with lots of steep steps; however, the first part of the trail is handicap accessible.
  • Has to be one of the best state parks in Wisconsin, plenty of trails and the falls are beautiful. Has a decent park for the family and the facility's are better than most parks I have been too. Worth the trip. 👍
  • Beautiful place! Lived here my whole life and can never get enough. Great hiking trails and scenery. Nothing but good things to say about this place:)!
  • Great short and long hikes. Waterfalls and Rapids better than almost anywhere in Wisconsin. Dogs only allowed on a few trails.
