My friends and I did a weekend camping trip here. The hiking paths are gorgeous, make sure to visit the waterfall! I recommend making a reservation because they book up very quickly.

This park is great for a little getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's conveniently located by I-94. It's very quiet and the trails are large enough to not feel crowded when others are there. The falls are beautiful in any season...More

The park has a variety of trails that satisfy many interests. From woodland to prairie to riparian, this park has it all. Great for tail running with different levels of difficulty and distance. Well marked and maintained. Great flora and fauna!

Another beautiful state park in Wisconsin! The waterfall and the dam are great attractions, and I love a park that makes you work to enjoy. I'm an avid hiker so I like a challenge. There are some easy trails, but there are plenty that will...More

Beautiful park for a hike or camping. The hikes take you through woods and marshes. We had a nice short hike to the remains of a small dam. Nice park for a day in the woods.

The falls are sure a surprise as you walk the trails! If you go from the beach area to the falls, it is stroller friendly!

Our camping experience was average for an above average price. Sites nice, bathroom average, $44 too much for a pass through stay. Waterfall was beautiful!!

There is a good elevation change on the walk down to and then back up from the waterfall, but it is worth it to be able to bask in the noise and mist created by the flowing and falling water.

The closest trail to the Falls is about 1.5 miles and that is with pretty steep hills. There are flatter routes but then you are looking at walking a further distance to them. Is a beautiful view and worth the walk there but... More
