Pattison State Park reviews
We went to this park on a waterfall trip through Wisconsin and we were not disappointed by Big and Little Manitou Falls. I especially love the selfish stations! more »
We live just 10 miles from Pattison park and go there often. This summer they upgraded a lot of the trails to get rid of the muddy conditions. They are great now! There is new gravel on most of them..... more »
Our family of 5 LOVED being there. Hiking around and looking at the fabulous scenery laid out before you. They have a beach where the kids enjoyed playing at despite the water being pretty cold. They plenty of restrooms around and all have wheelchair accessible as well. They allow dogs which is fantastic and have designated areas.... picnic area and and trails. The water falls are cool and the look outs are great. Look forward to returning for more exploring!!
I enjoyed the day trips and how close to Superior it is. Right now there is a lot of construction due to flooding from last year. Getting to some parts of the photo opportunity is not what I would consider handicap accessible. But if you can move about, so worth it. Also wish there wasn't orange construction fence everywhere, sorta ruins the picture, but it is probably just temporary.
