We had a great day today viewing the falls. Beautiful winter day...sunny...We thoroughly enjoyed walking the path to the falls. The falls weren't iced over yet. Some ice but not too much. We've been here before but we can never get enough of God's beautiful creation. It's beautiful here year round.

We visited on a chilly day and kept warm fast walking to the views.The Lower falls were a bit underwhelming compared to the... More

Very beautiful! The trails that we had time for were wide, paved and well cared for. It's a bit of a walk, but really not bad at all for all ages. After a complete waste of time at the brewery, we didn't have time to explore the area as much as we would have liked. There looked to be some... More

The upper and lower falls are a must see when visiting the Upper Peninsula. They can both be accessed (for a closer view) via stairs; but if stairs are a challenge, the upper viewing areas still make for a great experience.

We were very pleased to visit this park. The paths are wide, the washrooms are clean and the steps are many if you're walking down to view the"upper" falls. Good parking and well signposted. We were pushed for time so drove between the upper and lower falls, would have loved to hike.

We couldn't get to the lower falls as they were working on the pathway, we did manage to get a glimpse of them although the upper falls were open and fantastic as usual.

Loved every minute at the falls! The bathrooms were clean and still open which I was thankful for. The scenic walk was very nice! 94 stairs to the edge of the falls - the view is worth it!

We were here on a rainy day. The hikes were easy and the destinations (the falls) were simply spectacular. If you are in the area, a stop here is well worth the time.
