The falls are nice to see, but since they are much smaller than many other falls in the UP I wouldn't suggest to make this trip for the sole purpose of seeing the falls. Combine a visit to the falls with hiking on the trails and camping in a nearby park for a great trip.

I have been visiting Ocqueoc Falls for 55 years and camped there before it was a campground and a "scenic site". Some of the best visits have been during the winter because that presents a unique experience. Exploring the "disappearing river" one half mile away is well worth the visit although the land is privately owned and for sale.

The only falls in Michigan's lower Peninsula. We enjoyed our time here...we seen the falls many times in the summer and fall but never had seen them in the winter. We had a great time. A little slippery so be careful. Not quite frozen over at the end of December.

I couldn't sit comfortably for three weeks, but I had fun. This is a remote and beautiful location that you should definitely visit.

We were here on a color tour and these are the most impressive waterfallls in Michigan other than other than Tquamenon Falls, very nice new handicapped accessible path to the falls from the parking area and also other hiking trails along the river.

The falls were a suggested stop for us before we left for our trip through northern Michigan. Very glad we stopped, the falls are a very beautiful site. Highly recommend checking it out.

We added this onto our fall road trip itinerary as an afterthought and I'm glad we did. The falls are very small but the area is very scenic and there are trails along the river that we followed for a little while before heading back. There was a group of people fishing literally right in the middle of the falls... More

This is an absolute must to see. It is the largest falls in lower Michigan. I have been coming here for over 25 years. They have made it handicap accessible thru a grant they received several years ago. It is a very family friendly place to spend time. You can swim in the falls, have a picnic and hike the... More

the falls are not impressive, but if you like swimming and wading in rushing, gurgling water, this is worth the 11 mile drive outside Rogers City

I did not know that these are the only water falls in Michigan south of the Mackinaw bridge! Awesome park thanks to the Michigan DNR. We spent 3 hours, parks our butts in a lawn chair by the falls and cracked open a picnic lunch. This is a great family gathering place. PS, bring your swim stuff and plan on... More
