  • Our family of 5 LOVED being there. Hiking around and looking at the fabulous scenery laid out before you. They have a beach where the kids enjoyed playing at despite the water being pretty cold. They plenty of restrooms around and all have wheelchair accessible as well. They allow dogs which is fantastic and have designated areas.... picnic area and and trails. The water falls are cool and the look outs are great. Look forward to returning for more exploring!!
  • I enjoyed the day trips and how close to Superior it is. Right now there is a lot of construction due to flooding from last year. Getting to some parts of the photo opportunity is not what I would consider handicap accessible. But if you can move about, so worth it. Also wish there wasn't orange construction fence everywhere, sorta ruins the picture, but it is probably just temporary.
  • This is where to find good ole fashion RR....hike the trails or sit by the waterfall. My family did both and it was the most relaxing and enjoy family time. Getting back to nature and appreciating what it has to offer!
  • I had my family reunion here, and it was very enjoyable! I went on a hike to go see the falls with my partner and with my cousin. It was very pretty for sure! They had a beach as well closer to the parking lot that looked very nice as well.
  • Great views! Nice beach for swimming. A lot of trails closed due to storm damage and wash out. Clean bathrooms and showers for campers. Nice size camping sites. Playground for kids and lots of space ro run around.
