View Map

Ancient lava flows, deep gorges and spectacular waterfalls make this one of the state's most scenic parks. Log buildings from the 1930s CCC era add a special charm. The call of the loon, the forest primeval, the timeless character of cascading waterfalls; these and more await the visitor to Copper Falls State Park. There are also three terrific mountain bike trails to ride. Take-on some hills or enjoy an easy roll. The Takesin is a single-track trail with glimpses of the Bad River through the tall pines. Be sure to check out the view of the 80 foot-deep gorge at the scenic overlook. The Vahtera Trail rolls through a beautiful forest of birch and maple. The North Country National Scenic Trail skirts Loon Lake and crosses the marshland and woods to Mellen. Pets are welcome in Wisconsin State Parks but must be on a leash and under control at all times. Certain areas may be off limits to pets. Visit our website for more details.
