Love getting in the lower falls!

Good camp stores

Spacious Sites

Went here on a short trip with some friends. Didn't spend much time in the campground, but mornings and evenings were pleasant. Heard some wolves howling at night. Sites had plenty of room and were spread out.

Tahquamenon Falls Rivermouth Modern

This park is great if the Lower falls Portage and Hemlock are full, which they usually are. This campground is small, but modern. The physical address is 32130 W. South River Road, Paradise, MI 49768, put that in the GPS in order to get there properly! Please be mindful that the town of Paradise closes up pretty early and if you are looking for a late night snack, you should be sure to stock up before camping! My husband and I wanted a late dinner and drove into town around 7:45pm (Sunday night) and everything was closed. We did make our way to the Tahquamenon Brewery at the Upper Falls before they closed at 8:30 pm. They had very good chicken wings and fries! We went there earlier in the day and there was an hour wait, but later in the evening we were able to get right in. The sites here are great and there is a modern bathroom along with pit toilets. I was surprised at the modern bathroom as this campground has an old style feel. This campground was laid back and not as busy as the lower falls portage or hemlock. There are mature trees and grassy sites. Our television did not come in for any service and phones did not work well here.

Beautiful, well-maintained

At site 23, our site was backed up to the river, about 50 yards. It was nice and helped us feel a bit more isolated from the rest of the campground. River views are stunning, and we saw lots of folks take their own kayaks out. Bathrooms and showers are excellent. Only 20 minutes from the falls, we'll plan to stay here again!

Fall in Love with Tahquamenon Falls

This beautiful state park is a stunner during the fall colors! Located just outside of the town of Paradise on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It has all the amenities of a state park such as: spacious camp sites with plenty of room for larger RV’s, fire rings, picnic tables, super clean bathrooms and showers, nature programs, a playground, and a camp store. The campsites vary from rustic to those equipped with electricity to camper cabins, depending on your needs.

There are miles of hiking trails, gorgeous waterfalls, fishing boat rentals, paddling/canoeing opportunities, large picnic areas for groups and more. In the winter, they offer snowmobiling and cross country skiing.

Camp site fees vary, but keep in mind that non-residents pay an additional $9 per day for use of Michigan State Parks.

A must see!!

This is a campground that must be on your camping list! I have always wanted to stay here when I was a kid, but it took well into my adult years to finally make the trip. I cannot wait to return. Be careful when booking because there are different locations. We stayed at lower falls Portage and that was close to the lower falls. The lower falls are very pretty and well worth staying near. The upper must be viewed as well, but those are not within walking distance. The water is beautiful. Please stay here, you will not be disappointed!

Family camping

We went for 5 days, and enjoyed all of them! The waterfalls are amazing, hiking, swimming, playing, activities, exploring. Not terribly far from other sights and things to explore. Beautiful!!! We will be back, hopefully annually!

Wonderful place to camp with the family

We stayed in the Hemlock camping area. It was very clean, no problem with noisy neighbors. Nice hiking trails, hike from your site to the falls. With a total of 19 people camping in our group, the sites are very spacious we did not feel cramped in the 3 sites we had. Bathrooms were clean and showers always had hot water. Easy access to drinking water from all sites. You can drive or use the hiking trails to visit the falls.


We loved this state park! Beautiful, well cared for, and close to a lot of attractions. We will be back for sure!

Tahquamenon Falls State Park

The Tahquamenon Falls State Park is gorgeous! The campground that we visited was the one by the river mouth. The campground is well maintained, the toilets and baths - clean. The camp sites are situated in the middle of a river bend and the area is very picturesque. The town of Paradise is close nearby and one can find almost anything in the very well stocked stores. The river has a couple of waterfalls upstream from the Rivermouth Campground - the Lower and Upper Tahquamenon Falls. Other sites of interest nearby are the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, the Point Iroquois Light at Bay Mills on Whitefish Bay. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and Mackinac Island are also fairly close (a couple of hours away driving distance) in case you need to enrich your experience. The area is also pierced by the North Country Trail. A very refreshing hike for us was the hike between the Upper and Lower Falls. A nice reward at the end of the trail is a small brewery with some interesting beer selection. The whole area is very beautiful and despite the gloomy weather it was a memorable experience.
