Copper Falls State Park is a 3,068-acre (1,242 ha) state park in Wisconsin. The park contains a section of the Bad River and its tributary the Tylers Forks, which flow through a gorge and drop over several waterfalls. Old Copper Culture Indians and later European settlers mined copper in the area. The state park was created in 1929 and amenities were developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration. In 2005 the park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a site with 10 contributing properties.

  • Fantastic location really well laid out hikes. Both copper and brown Stone Falls are worth going to. Park staff, especially the front entrance were extremely rude. Otherwise great Park.
  • Beautiful views of the falls. Our extended family (ages 1-70) enjoyed the Doughboy loop. It was almost 3 miles with a fair number of stairs and nice look-outs. My immediate family (our kids are 15, 13 & 12) winter camped here in February 2021 the falls were covered in snow and ice and it was gorgeous to see them in both seasons.
