Bottom Line
 

A beautiful Must-See Park! There are many family friendly areas, but there are some Dangerous areas including fast rapids, high cliffs, and waterfalls, so supervision for children is a must! Large RVs may want to pass on this campground.

 

Pattison State Park is a 1,436-acre (581 ha) Wisconsin state park south of Superior, Wisconsin. Situated on the Black River, the park contains both Big Manitou Falls, the highest waterfall in Wisconsin at 165 feet (50 m), and Little Manitou Falls, which is 30 feet (9.1 m). Pattison State Park was established in 1920.

There is plenty to do at this beautiful park, including:

  • Camping: The park has 59 family campsites (18 with electric hookups, and 3 backpack sites)
  • Nature Center: The Gitche Gumee Nature Center features exhibits about the park’s cultural and natural history, including its wildlife and geology. Guided nature walks are offered, and children’s nature exploration backpacks are also available.
  • Swimming: The park has a 300-foot (91 m) sand beach on Interfalls Lake.
  • Trails: The park’s 9 miles (14 km) of hiking trails include trails that are used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Beaver Slide Nature Trail is 2 miles long and circles Interfalls Lake. Logging Camp Trail is 4.7 miles long from which some of the remains of Pattison’s old logging camp by the Black River, can be seen.
