Saying Tahquamenon Lower Falls Campground out loud may be a mouthful, but enjoying it will be a walk in the park. Showcasing one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi, as well as 50,000 acres of rugged beauty, this spot is a great destination for which to pack your zoom lens for some prize pics. Scattered lakes and a river mouth leading off into Whitefish Bay make for the perfect picnic grounds as well.

Beautiful place. Be sure to visit both falls. The lower falls are long and cascading. The upper falls are ones that are usually seen in pictures. They are higher with a 50 foot drop. Both worth falls are worth seeing any time of year. My opinion is they are most beautiful in the winter.

Get up close and hear the roar of the river from the viewing area.Upper falls in mid-summerLook past the falls and down the river.

Camped for 2 nights this summer. Crowded on weekend and seemed to be on top of a lot of campers but people were respectful. There is a nice pavilion with a few grilles .5 miles from the campsite with a beautiful view of the river. Would definitely go back on our way to pictured rocks!

We visited here on 8/6/17

Fairly busy campground with only a few unoccupied spaces. The camping sites aren't very spread out but our fellow campers were quiet and friendly.

This is about a mile away from the lower falls with a hiking trail leading directly from camp. Nice to wake up and check them out before the crowds show up. A much longer day can be made by hiking to the upper falls. Shuttle and driving options are also available.

View of the lower falls; 1 mile hike from campground.
