The Tahquamenon Falls is also called ?Root Beer Falls? notably because of the brown color emanated by the tannins coming from the swamps from which the river drains. This is a silent hideaway for individuals looking for quiet surroundings amidst the wilderness. The Park offers solitude to persons who want to unwind from the hustles and bustles of city life. The park is comprised of almost 52,000 acres of woodland without roads, building structures and electricity hook-ups.

The Tahquamenon Falls offers 2 falls. One of the 2 falls is the Upper Falls, one of the largest in this side of Mississippi, has a nearly-50-foot drop with more-than-200-foot across. 50,000 gallons of water per second is cascading over it. The second falls is the Lower Falls composed of 5 falls of smaller size that cascades around the island. It may be smaller in density but the Lower falls is just as magnificent. Some species of animals are sighted here. Hikers can chose from the trails available. There is no campground in the Upper Falls but 4 campgrounds are available in the Lower Falls. Campgrounds are provided with modern facilities like restrooms. Come and experience Tahquamenon Falls.
