The Remote Wisconsin County Home To 10 Magical Waterfalls Is Sure To Inspire You
Up in the far northeast corner of Wisconsin, along its border with the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is Marinette County. Just 80 or so miles north of Green Bay, the area is an outdoor paradise with more than 230,000 acres of county forest, 444 lakes and 920 miles of rivers and streams. The Pike, Thunder, Peshtigo, and Menominee Rivers all flow through the area, creating a myriad of waterfalls and rapids to explore.
The folks in Marinette County have even grouped together some of the falls and given the tours names so you can find them all when you head out into the wilderness. Many are located in the park system, but you can buy a car pass for $3 a day or $12 for the full year.
Here’s a sampling of the waterfalls and rapids you can see if you make the trek up north.
