Tahquamenon Falls State Park

Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula near Paradise, Tahquamenon Falls State Park is the second-largest state park in Michigan.

Although many visitors come to this 48,000-acre wilderness gem to see the falls, the park has many other places for you to explore and experience. The 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.

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.
