Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula near Paradise, Tahquamenon Falls State Park is the second largest state park in Michigan.
Although most of the 500,000 annual visitors come to this 48,000-acre wilderness gem to see two of Michigan's most beautiful waterfalls, the park has many other places for you to explore and experience.
For example, Tahquamenon Fall State Park has more than 40 miles of hiking trails, 13 inland lakes, 24 miles of the Tahquamenon River and approximately 20,000 acres of natural area.
Besides spectacular waterfalls, this park is a great place to have fun year-round. Camping, hiking, fishing, canoeing and photography are popular activities in the spring and summer. Anglers will enjoy this list of Tahquamenon's best fishing spots. In fall, many people enjoy hunting and viewing the beautiful autumn colors. Winter finds visitors snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on the miles of marked trails.
The variety of wildlife includes 125 species of nesting birds, plus moose, bear, wolves, fishers and more.
