Pattison State Park features the highest waterfalls in Wisconsin and the fourth highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains. Big Manitou Falls is 165 high, and Little Manitou Falls is 31 feet high. Over these falls, water in the Black River tumbles from Wisconsin's northwest lowlands ecological landscape to the Superior coastal plain.

Manitou Falls was beautiful, however we could not walk the trail according to park staff due to washouts from high water. Only reason I have 3 stars is we went down to the lower falls and were able to hike around a bit. With a 4, 6, 8 year old we couldn’t stray from the path too much but it wasn’t even a mile worth of walking. Still a pretty area with the falls.

Beaver Trail around the lake to Little Manitou Falls is a gem

Gorgeous loop on a sunny fall day. Park was clean and trail was just challenging enough. Saw swans on the lake and beautiful colors.

Great hikes!

Great hikes to each falls!

This place has the largest waterfall in Wisconsin! We managed to go out there on a day that was rainy so the falls were gushing with water... It was so nice to see but of course, like many places in Wisconsin, it was all boardwalk and trail areas closer to the waterfall so you can't really get right up on it and feel the breeze coming off of the bottom of the water fall! Still gorgeous and we walked the trail to the bottom and around the stream area to take in all of it's beauty beofre heading back :)!
