We visited after some strong storms that changed the landscape in the park. We were able to walk to the upper falls following a changed path. The path was less than a mile long and easy to walk. We were provided views of the falls...More

We camped for three nights in Pattison State Park. Despite severe storm damage, we had fun playing horseshoes, hiking, and reviewing Pattison development and history in the old CCC buildings. There are "camp hosts" and they were attentive. Clean showers; decent pit toilets, and relatively...More

It was awesome nature to us, but we're from Kansas. Loved it. I can say I liked Amnicon Falls better or even the falls in Osceola cause you can stand behind them, but they are still awesome to me!

The best waterfalls in Wisconsin, but the rain in the last week of June broke the damn. The lake and beach are gone as of now.

Construction around the area limited access to larger falls. Also hard to see because of all the foliage. However the “little” falls were great! Because of all the rain the prior two weeks they were really impressive. Trails well maintained and clean.

First things first... Great waterfalls and paths! This park is close to Superior and easy to find. We "scouted" the campground and were greeted by the friendly campground host. The campground felt a little tight, but it has many pull through sites and is very...More
