It's just as amazing as you've heard. It's hard to do the beauty justice in pictures. This should be on your bucket list, most definitely.

Many are aware of the beauty and power of both the upper and lower Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan's eastern Upper Peninsula. They may not realize that the falls are a year-around attraction. I stopped in with my lovely bride on our way home from a Christmas visit with family in Minnesota, and were treated to a great mid-winter view that... More

We came here with two couples to see the falls and I am so very glad we did, everything about Tahquamenon Falls State Park was beautiful and the falls themselves were breathtaking. I highly recommend anyone in the area to take a breath taking view of the falls. And visit the restaurant the food was very good and the staff... More

Hiked down to the lower falls on very cold windy day. In winter the close access road is closed so you have to hike in across the snow covered trail. Arriving at the falls made it well worth the effort. Then drove to the upper falls which is a very short walk from the parking lot even in winter. Tahquamenon... More

Just fabulous camping for families, friends or couples. We camped 4 days here as a family of 4. Hiked everyday (children were 9 & 11), loved playing in the water along the way. The restaurant onsite was wonderful as well. Be well prepared with a screen house and plenty of mosquito repellent though, you have been warned ;) Our stay... More

Went there on a real hot day but the heat didn't get to us in the forest area, walking trails to the upper and lower falls are also in the shade of trees, some a bit steep if you have walking problems. The falls are impressive and there are many good places for watching them and taking pictures. Kids were... More

Easy walk to view the upper falls, a great brewery on site as well. In the winter the view has the added beauty of frozen icicles on the sides of the falls.
