|Tahquamenon Falls and The Tahquamenon Falls State Park - Upper Michigan's Premiere Attraction|

|One of the United States most breathtaking waterfalls, the Tahquamenon Falls of the Upper Peninsula, invite you, your friends and family to experience this fantastic wonder of the world. Set within a pristine wilderness, the Tahquamenon Falls is over 200' wide and 48' high. A magnificent walk path will direct your way through the forest within the Tahquamenon Falls State Park. These Upper Falls are the second largest water falls east of the Mississippi.|
|Visitors will love the spectacular scenes that are available along the nature trail down to the falls. Many will venture down to the observation platform for an upclose view of the Tahquamenon Falls.|
Rising from springs north of McMillan, the Tahquamenon River drains the watershed of an area of more than 790 square miles. From there, it travels the distance of 94 miles before spilling into Whitefish Bay. The amber color of the water is caused by tannins that leach from the Cedar, Spruce and Hemlock in the swamps drained by the river. The extremely soft water churned by the action of the falls causes the large amounts of foam. This has been its trademark for many generations.
|Tahquamenon State Park Moose|
Moose are very illusive creatures, but most sightings of our area moose (within Luce County and Newberry MI) occur in the Tahquamenon State Park. The area and terrain is immense and a perfect setting for the lifestyle of the moose.
