A short drive east of Eau Claire you’ll find a little slice of Wisconsin paradise. Big Falls County Park has it all – gorgeous waterfalls, a soft beach, hiking trails, and some shallow swimming water. It’s not very well known outside the Eau Claire area, but it’s well worth seeking out: a place that’s perfect for a warm summer outing with family or friends.

Pack your beach towel and cooler: here’s what you need to know about this amazing little Wisconsin park.

There’s a $3 entrance fee to access the park. There are some limited amenities at the park, including pit toilets and a picnic area with grills. If you’re an angler you may want to bring your gear along – it’s a popular fishing spot. Paddlers and tubers can also launch a river trip here when water conditions permit.
