Beautiful park with exceptional features. All areas very clean and well maintained. Wonderful, well marked walking trails give visitor's many chances to see the water falls from several angles. Definitely one of Wisconsin's beat parks.
We liked it. We enjoy seeing falls no matter what park we go too. One observation for us what that they had a wooden fence so your not able to get to the edge. It kept you kinda far from the action and a lot of signs that told you that you couldn't go beyond a certain point. We have enjoyed so many Wisconsin state parks. This one we checked off of our list but wasn't a favorite.
