Newberry's Tahquamenon Falls State Park
This is the land of the "rushing Tahquamenaw" that Longfellow described in his famous poem "Hiawatha". The abundance of fish in its waters and animals along its shores attracted the Ojibwa Indians who camped, farmed and trapped along its banks. Whether you are visiting the dynamic upper Tahquamenon Falls or the lower ones where you can actually wade out in the water, you are in for sheer delight. The multi level staircase aids visitors in their quest to get up close. The Tahquamenon Falls State Park is located in Newberry in the Upper Peninsula.
