Waterfalls and a multilevel boardwalk make this river at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park worth seeing.

We loved wandering among the old pines and hemlocks along the Presque Isle River. The best part of a wonderful state park.

This is one of our favorite falls in the area. We enjoyed hiking to see all the falls. The trails are in good condition?

Got out there early in the morning, it is quite a road trip there if you do not take South boundary road, but so worth it! Absolutely breath taking and with plenty of stops

We spent half a day hiking all of the way around this river area. Some of the terrain was tough, but we had some younger kids that made it through. It is amazing to see the power of a river at work.

Wonderful waterfalls. You can fish, picnic, camp, hang out at the beach and collect rocks. Very relaxing. The suspension bridge is cool.
