Amnicon Falls State Park in Northern Wisconsin sits near the southwestern edge of Lake Superior on the Amnicon River. With 825 acres and plenty to do, Amnicon State Park has something for the whole family. The park offers almost two miles of trails to explore, including a number of short trails along both sides of the Amnicon River that offer amazing views.
There is also a self-guided nature trail that provides river access downstream from the falls. Swimming and wading in the river are permitted, but at your own risk, since there are no lifeguards or designated swimming areas. The park also offers hunting and trapping (in season only and with applicable permits), as well as winter activities such as snowshoeing.
Amnicon Falls State Park is open from 6 AM to 11 PM daily. Admission to the park requires a park admission sticker, which can be purchased in advance or upon arrival, and for daily rates or for an annual rate. Admission sticker prices start at $8 per day for Wisconsin residents and $11 for those with out-of-state license plates.
In Wisconsin state parks, dogs are permitted in most campgrounds, trails, and roads, but must be kept under physical control at all times, such as on a leash no longer than eight feet in length. Do not allow your dog to dig, disturb wildlife, or become a nuisance to other park visitors. If you go hiking with your dog, always come prepared with plenty of water for both you and your pet. Bring waste bags and be sure to clean up after your pet. Be aware of posted signs where dogs may not be permitted.
Camping rates are separate and vary by type of site and other conditions. Reservations can be made in advance by calling the park office during business hours or through the park’s website. If you are in Northern Wisconsin and looking for a beautiful spot to spend the day or the weekend with your family or furry companion, give Amnicon Falls State Park a try.
