Tahquamenon Falls State Park RV & Campground Guide


Tahquamenon Falls State Park, MI, encompasses close to 50,000 acres of undeveloped woodland without roads, buildings or power lines. The centerpiece of the park, and the very reason for its existence, is the Tahquamenon River with its waterfalls. The Upper Falls is one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. It has a drop of nearly 50 feet and is more than 200 feet across. A maximum flow of more than 50,000 gallons of water per second has been recorded cascading over these falls. Four miles downstream is the Lower Falls, a series of five smaller falls cascading around an island. Although not as dramatic as the Upper Falls, they are equally magnificent. The falls can be viewed from the river bank or from the island, which can be reached by rowboat rented from a park concession. 

Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Tahquamenon Falls State Park is a place where year-round activities and attractions thrive. The area is home to miles of snowmobile trails, cross-country skiing pathways and a host of winter fun. It has been named a no. 1 stop for colors of Fall foliage, not to mention the summer lakes and exploring to be done – boat, fish, swim, water-ski, canoe, & kayak during the season.
