Discover Copper Falls State Park, WI


Often regarded as one of the most scenic state parks anywhere in Wisconsin, Copper Falls State Park is a nature lover's delight. Located two miles northeast of Mellen, this 3,068-acre park boasts an eye-catching landscape of vast gorges and breathtaking waterfalls. It'll not only have you reaching for your camera at every opportunity, but also itching to get into the great outdoors and explore the surrounding natural beauty.

Visitors to the park will find 17 miles of hiking trails, excellent boating and fishing, and an ideal environment for winter sports. Throw in the inclusion of two pretty campgrounds and it soon becomes clear that Copper Falls State Park is the perfect destination to camp in a motorhome rental.

Getting Outdoors

There's just something mesmerizing and undeniably spectacular about waterfalls, and that's one of the main reasons why Copper Falls is such a popular park. The beautiful Bad River flows through Copper Falls State Park, and along the way, it runs through the gorge and plunges, cascades, and meanders its way down several waterfalls.

The best way to get a close-up view of the best waterfalls in the park is to take a hike along the Doughboys Nature Trail. Leaving from the concession building, this trail follows the Bad River and its tributary, Tyler Forks, around the park. It takes in Copper Falls and Brownstone Falls along the way, so you'll no doubt want to stop for a while and snap off plenty of photos.

While we're on the subject of hiking, there are around 17 miles of trails traversing the park, many of which offer waterfall overlooks. The two-and-a-half-mile Red Granite Falls Trail in the southern part of the park is a particular favorite, while the Takesson Trail offers wonderful views of the Bad River and is also a popular skiing route in winter. And if you're planning a longer trek, more than four miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail pass through the park.

When you're not exploring trails on foot or on skis, you'll probably spend most of your Copper Falls State Park camping trip near Loon Lake. This 32-acre lake offers a scenic backdrop and is also home to a wide range of recreational activities. With a 300-foot sand beach, it's the place to go when you want to enjoy a cooling swim in the summer months. However, take note that there are no lifeguards on duty.

If you enjoy boating, there's a launching area provided for canoes, kayaks, and car-top boats. Only electric motors are allowed on the lake, so it's a wonderfully serene spot to go for a leisurely paddle.

And if you bring your fishing rod with you, you'll find northern pike, largemouth bass, and panfish in the lake in abundance. The Bad River and Tyler Forks are also known for their trout fishing, so there's something to suit anglers of all skill levels.

Camping at Copper Falls State Park

If you'd like to go RV camping in Copper Falls State Park, book an RV in Ashland County and then reserve a spot in one of the park's tranquil campgrounds. There are 56 campsites in total, spread throughout the larger North Campground and smaller South Campground. Campers can choose from:

  • 24 sites with electrical hookups, all of which are found in the North Campground
  • 28 sites with no hookups, found in both the North and South Campgrounds
  • 4 walk-in sites for tents only

Showers and a dump station can be found near the South Campground, but these close when the weather gets cold, usually around the beginning of October. Leashed pets are also welcome in the camping area, provided they're attended to and cleaned up after at all times.

Finally, Copper Falls State Park also boasts one rustic cabin designed to be accessible for people with disabilities.

Exploring the Area

When your Copper Falls State Park RV camping vacation comes to an end, you'll be happy to discover that there are plenty of other wonderful attractions to be found nearby.

For example, if you want to explore more beautiful natural scenery, you'll probably want to head west to the St. Peter's Dome State Natural Area, where the hike to Morgan Falls is particularly rewarding.

If you love winter sports, you might want to make the 40-minute drive northeast to Ironwood to hit the slopes at Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort.

But if you'd rather check out the natural wonder that is Lake Superior, you can be in Duluth in less than two hours. While you're there, make sure you head to Canal Park to watch the famous Aerial Lift Bridge in action.

When you rent a camper near Copper Falls State Park, you'll find a long list of attractions and destinations worth exploring within easy reach. If you've got a little bit of wiggle room in your travel itinerary, it's worth stopping for a while to check them out.
