Amnicon Falls State Park RV & Campground Guide
Amnicon Falls State Park sits on a geologically significant fault line called the Douglas Fault. Though the Amnicon River is only 46 miles long, it cuts through both sides of the fault, making an exciting set of waterfalls and rapids where visitors can observe the differences. While the upper falls bounce across basalt, an igneous rock formed by lava flows, the lower waterfall cuts through sandstone, a sedimentary rock once at the bottom of an ocean or lake. Both waterfalls are inside the boundaries of 825-acre Amnicon Falls State Park near the furthest northern point of Wisconsin. Established in 1961, most of this park is covered with second-growth forest as the site was harvested in the late 1800s to construct many of Duluth and Superior, WI, structures. This park's rustic nature, covered bridge, and delightful waterfalls attract visitors from as far away as Minneapolis, MN.
