Tahquamenon Falls State Park is Michigan's second largest park
exceeding 40,000 acres.
Tahquamenon,the land of Hiawatha, is home to
one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi.
It stands 200 feet wide and has a drop of nearly 50 feet. Four miles
downstream is the Lower Falls, a series of five smaller falls
cascading around an island. The Tahquamenon River, which feeds the
falls, rises from springs and drains the watershed of an area of more
than 820 square miles. From its source, it meanders 94 miles before
emptying into Lake Superior.
