We were very pleased to visit this park. The paths are wide, the washrooms are clean and the steps are many if you're walking down to view the"upper" falls. Good parking and well signposted. We were pushed for time so drove between the upper and lower falls, would have loved to hike.

We couldn't get to the lower falls as they were working on the pathway, we did manage to get a glimpse of them although the upper falls were open and fantastic as usual.

Loved every minute at the falls! The bathrooms were clean and still open which I was thankful for. The scenic walk was very nice! 94 stairs to the edge of the falls - the view is worth it!

We were here on a rainy day. The hikes were easy and the destinations (the falls) were simply spectacular. If you are in the area, a stop here is well worth the time.

Even though it as season by a couple of weeks, he Falls and Park were breathtaking. The color in the trees and the falls were worth the trip. They gave done a terrific job of making the parliament user friendly. Even the 99 steps down to view the falls better was easily manageable (including the walk back up). Nice picnic... More

There are several views of the Falls if you walk around the paths. We walked to the top view without going around to the other side. A good example of "mighty rushing waters" and the color is unusual. Well worth the trip for the leaf colors, and breathing the fresh Michigan air and the walking through the paths. A small... More

On a fall color trip of the lower peninsula we decided to take the time to visit the Falls although I have visited many times my wife had never been there and she was awed by the beauty of the attractions, we found the restrooms to be clean and the entire facility appeared to be well kept and manintained !

I was there mid October so it wasn't too busy. Falls were beautiful. Restrooms adequate. Food not so much. The brewery was packed so I went to the only other option for food. It smelled delicious (BBQ) but I got to window and they were out of bbq pork sandwich. Ordered nachos, what a joke. Old chips with luke warm... More

We've been here in the summer, this was first trip during the fall months mid-week. Much more quiet. Much more beautiful. Pathways empty. Trees in full fall color. Restrooms weren't open but outhouses were available. Both upper and lower falls had more than adequate parking and look outs accessible. The lower falls boat rentals were also closed. Overall best visit... More
