Description

Ancient lava flows, deep gorges, and spectacular waterfalls make Copper Falls one of Wisconsin's most scenic parks. Log buildings built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s add to the park's charm. There is plenty to do; hiking, bicycling, picnicking, fishing, and swimming. The North Country National Scenic Trail passes through Copper Falls State Park.

Nice park with good amenities. Be sure to take the hikes to the falls and climb the fire tower for a great panoramic view.

  Nice wooded sites
Reviewed on June 19th, 2020
Sites are nice if you like the wooded feel without much sunlight. The shower and flush toilet facility is clean and comfortable feeling. It is located in the South Campground, so you basically need to drive from the North Campground to use it, but at least you get electrical at most sites in the North. There is only one electrical site (#57) in the South and it is not currently reservable. Not really any close things near the campgrounds for children, you have to drive closer to the falls. Speaking of the falls, they are beautiful. Take the time to hike Doughboys' Trail.

  Beautiful park
Reviewed on June 19th, 2020
The park is gorgeous, heavily wooded with a fair amount of elevation change and radically changing flora around each bend and over every hill. The main waterfalls are easily accessed by well-groomed hiking trails. South campground is primarily for tents (the one E-site is for the camp host) and very shaded - and therefore damp in the spring/early summer. The hike-in sites, particularly the two furthest are excellent and for tent campers the lowest sites in the north campground are also excellent and the most isolated of the drive-in sites. There is a concession by the falls with limited daytime hours that has gifts, snacks and ice cream. Main shower/bathroom and pit toilets cleaned daily. Trail to the backpack site is brutal after a heavy rain. Good swimming beach and the lake is big and interesting enough for a worthwhile afternoon paddle in the canoe. Wildlife aplenty. Nearest town worth mentioning is a half-hour away but there is gas and a small grocery store just outside the park in Mellen.

  First time visiting

This was the first time I've ventured to this park. After all the rain they've had in this area, I was hoping it wasn't washed out. Once inside the park, it's a beautiful park. The "electric" sites were well situated - only downfall was the "Handicapped" site is basically made for an RV or Pop-up, our tent (16x20) was to small for the area available to place our tent and since we went with family members, they were nice enough to swap sites, to which the park had no hassle swapping our names to the opposite sites. The only other downfall, was since the site was listed as "handicapped" - it was odd they placed it next to pit toilets and not flushed. The only site that is close to the flush toilets/showers is site #57 which isn't viewable on the campsite maps. And the site we were at, was a distance to take a shower. Once you learned the map - the walk/trail for the Dougboy trail, was an awesome experience - great views of the many falls that were within this park. Rangers are very nice, and the park staff kept the park and toilet areas well cleaned. There is a play area for the kids, marked areas for your pets. There is a small town just before you enter the park drive, to where you can buy things you might of forgotten - but if you want a truly GREAT burger - to go the SNOW CREEK BAR & GRILL which is down the street from the town's City Hall and kiddy corner from the Senior Center - THE BEST BURGERS!! BUt I would come back to this park time and time again.
