The Lower Falls Campground was fairly crowded when we were there. Nice bathhouse (toilets/showers) were heavily used (and sometimes by sloppy people!). Many very nice sites - level, easy access, a few pull-throughs, and excellent fire-pits and tables. Hiking to the Falls was enjoyable. Naturalist tour was informative. Check the Fish House restaurant in Paradise - They open at noon ONLY if they have fish caught that morning to serve. Moderately priced, very good fish & fries. Then drive up to Ship Wreck Museum (Whitebridge). Admission was expensive, it felt like a "tourist trap", but it was fun to go and see. Campground was an ideal base for these side trips. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate includes annual state parks pass for RV and tow vehicle for 4 days. Very nice location in woods and on river. We stayed in Rivermouth - modern (electric) area. Kayaking available on the river. The only reason this is a 5 is because it does not have water hookup or sewer although there is a fill and dump station on way in/out. We had 50 amp electric, which was good and a large site plenty of room for RV and slide outs. Satellite on roof did not come in. Verizon reception was good for phone and Wi-Fi. Picnic table and huge (deep) fire pit. Good interior paved roads a little narrow but no problem with 39' RV and towed. Restrooms were new and in good shape with private shower rooms. This is a remote area with only 3 small convenience stores with limited essentials so come prepared. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

This is in a very wooded section of the wilderness around the falls on the Tahquamenon River. The park is divided into four camp areas, two around the upper falls and two around the lower falls. Some of the sites are very short and some of them are pull thru to handle longer rigs, be sure to check the site specs on the web site. Camp areas are somewhat level with gravel, dirt, and some grass. Reservations are made thru the Michigan DNR site, not Reserve America. There is very limited cell service in the area and way too many trees for satellite reception, the perfect place to get away and disconnect. The park and area is beautiful with lots of trails to hike and things to see. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our rate reflects a senior discount and does not include the daily use fee as we bought a year park pass to cover that. I never rate a park without water higher than a 7. This would have been a wonderful park had the mosquitoes not been so bad. We killed hundreds inside our motorhome and had to leave after two nights. They were very nice and gave us a refund of our other two nights. We would come back again as the park is excellent but only when the mosquitoes are down - the fall???

Tahquamenon Falls State Park is a fantastic place. The campground offers ADA sites. All sites are relatively large, level, grass and dirt. The bathrooms/showers were clean. The staff was friendly. We only stayed one night; however, there is much to do in the area including Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, kayaking/canoeing and hiking to the falls. There was no Verizon service in the state park. Would stay here again. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the Lower Falls campground and had a nice big site which was grass and flat. We had a fire pit and a picnic table. A firewood vendor drives through the campground every day selling firewood. Lots to see and do here. Hiking trails, Upper and Lower Falls (Lower Falls are a short walk from the campground) and only 20 miles from Whitefish Point and the Shipwreck Museum which is highly recommended! The Upper Falls area has an excellent restaurant, "Brewery and Pub". Their beer was good. The food and service was excellent! We had minimal Verizon service, but by using a booster antenna it was okay. No television watching here, but star watching is excellent! We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects nightly rate with 30-amp electric. Note that there is also an $8 online reservation fee and daily entrance fees for both Michigan residents and non-residents. The non-resident daily fee is $8.40/day and an annual pass is $30.50. Figuring that we're here three nights & non-residents, it's actually rather expensive ($34/night). State park staff is very nice, although camphosts & employees of concessionaire are not. Free hot and strong-pressured showers. Sites are a bit on top of one another and our fire pit needs a serious cleaning - here are cigarette butts & trash. There are some nice trees and it's quite quiet at night. We would stay here again.

This park is very well run! We showed up on a Thursday with no reservation and were handed a list of sites that were available for 1, 2, or 2 or more days. We were able to quickly zero in on a nice pull-through. We stayed at the Overlook Loop. Sites are totally wooded and fairly large. The shower/bath facilities are older but well kept. There are two sets of waterfalls, upper and lower, with a nice 4 mile hike between them. A shuttle runs in the summer, to return you home without hiking another 4 miles! Wonderful ranger programs for kids/grand kids, including "Investigating Owl Puke." (No kidding!) Again, everyone seems to have a campfire, so if smoke is a problem for you, avoid the busy season. I'm sure this park would be gorgeous in the fall. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful area of Michigan. Defiantly a must see. The campground was also nice. We stayed in the lower falls. The best sights would be on the river or on the premier of the park. Sights in the river would have to be booked 6 months in advanced. If you are into hiking this would be for you. Nothing really to do there after seeing the falls. Absolutely no cell service, no IPad (AT&T). Could not pick up any local channels on TV. This is really roughing it for me. There 3 campgrounds in this state park. Lower falls and upper falls are about 2 miles apart. The 3rd one is Rivermouth which is about 15 miles from the other two. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

In my opinion, Michigan's premier "nature" campground. Absolutely beautiful scenery/location. Campground is in two sections, a "lower campground" (our favorite) which is near the river & lower falls, and an "upper campground" which is short hike or bike/car ride up-hill from the falls area. If reservations are made months in advance, can usually get a river-front site. Campground is very well maintained. Sites are large, grassy, and shaded. Staff is courteous. Campfire wood is sold on site, with truck that makes rounds through campground twice each evening. Lots of hiking trails. Boardwalk and trail along the river is the closest thing to the Pacific Northwest that Michigan has to offer: the smell of pines, the sound of rushing water, and a quiet trail through the woods for a 4-mile journey to the "upper" section of the falls. We've camped here often and and will continue to do so for many years to come. Always a highlight of my summer camping experiences. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Rivermouth Campground is part of Tahquemenon Falls State Park near Paradise, Michigan. It's a nice quiet park with just electric hookups. Very nice restrooms and showers. All sites within easy walking distance to the river. The mouth of the river hits Lake Superior right across the highway from the campground. Would stay here again. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large state park, beautiful setting at the top of the Upper Peninsula. Sites are varying sizes, but plenty of larger sites for big rigs. This is a great park for hiking and cycling. We walked to the falls which were very scenic. Our only negative comment is the process of selecting a site - we stopped at the gate and were told to drive around the park (pulling a good sized 5th wheel) and choose a site then return to the gate and tell them which one we selected (with 5th wheel still in tow) and then they would book us in. Since all the sites were the same price, why not just choose a site, set up, and then let them know which one, like we have done in other state parks? Their answer was that others were also driving around choosing sites, and if someone came back first with the site we wanted we would have to go and choose another. So their check-in system needs an over-haul. Out of State charge of $8.00 is included in our rate. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Always a beautiful state park. I camped here several times when I was a kid. You can tell that the State of Michigan is starting to invest in its parks again: everything was in good repair. The facilities were clean, and they were mowing in the Riversbend campground while we were here. Cell phone reception is spotty in Riversbend but OK higher up in Overlook campground. Wi-Fi access is the same, depending on your ISP (our Virgin Mobile MiFi hotspot didn't get a signal). We had a pull-through site in Riversbend Site No. 14, and were able to pick up satellite for DirecTV. Mosquitoes were awful. We actually had a departing camper walk up while we set up, asking if we needed mosquito coils he had left over. It IS in the middle of expansive cedar swamps, so mosquitoes are expected, but worth the stay. There's a great lady who drives her truck through with firewood: a very friendly vendor. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is in an absolutely beautiful setting. Lovely trees, grass, forest and waterfalls. However we felt like prisoners in our trailer due to the sheer numbers of mosquitoes. It's due to the area, what with lots of water and bogs. Smart campers had screened tents to place over and around their picnic tables to allow them a bug-free area. The rangers even offer a nature walk during which you can identify the 49 species of mosquitoes! The falls are really lovely though, and the campground nice. Despite high usage, the bathrooms were very clean. Electric only sites, but there were nearby water faucets and the dump site was fine. Rate reflects an $8 reservation fee, but doesn't include the $8.00 daily pass for a nonresident. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed our stay at this state park. The site was clean and well maintained. The location of the park enabled us to tour the surrounding areas easily. We used this park as a base to tour the Falls (Upper and Lower), Whitefish Point and Sault Ste. Marie. The main roads in the park were paved. The sites are grassy and level and sufficient room between each site. We really enjoyed our pull through site. There were no advanced amenities (cable TV, Wi-Fi) but the beautiful trees made up for them. The restrooms were modern, clean and each shower area was private: a real plus. We attended fantastic ranger programs in the park. We would definitely come back here again. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Motorhome.
