Having visited many of the larger waterfalls of Michigan's U.P., I will say that this waterfall, being one of few in the L.P. is much smaller, but still beautiful. A short walk on a paved trail from the parking area will lead you to the...More

The falls are nice to see, but since they are much smaller than many other falls in the UP I wouldn't suggest to make this trip for the sole purpose of seeing the falls. Combine a visit to the falls with hiking on the trails...More

I have been visiting Ocqueoc Falls for 55 years and camped there before it was a campground and a "scenic site". Some of the best visits have been during the winter because that presents a unique experience. Exploring the "disappearing river" one half mile away...More

I couldn't sit comfortably for three weeks, but I had fun. This is a remote and beautiful location that you should definitely visit.

We were here on a color tour and these are the most impressive waterfallls in Michigan other than other than Tquamenon Falls, very nice new handicapped accessible path to the falls from the parking area and also other hiking trails along the river.

The falls were a suggested stop for us before we left for our trip through northern Michigan. Very glad we stopped, the falls are a very beautiful site. Highly recommend checking it out.

We added this onto our fall road trip itinerary as an afterthought and I'm glad we did. The falls are very small but the area is very scenic and there are trails along the river that we followed for a little while before heading back....More

This is an absolute must to see. It is the largest falls in lower Michigan. I have been coming here for over 25 years. They have made it handicap accessible thru a grant they received several years ago. It is a very family friendly place...More

HI Is it a long hike to the Falls once you have parked? Is there camping nearby???

Response from Michael R | Reviewed this property |
Just a short two hundred yards on a wide cement walk.
Can you hike the trails to the falls without the recreation passport? Do you need to buy a ticket somewhere?

Hi there. I do not think you can hike in because there is no place to park unless on the side of the road. When you get to the falls you can walk in the water and go up the falls to the other side of the road. If you live... More

No, it's pretty low-key and there aren't much in the way of facilities besides the bathroom. There are some nice hikes, so you want to bring some water. The nearest town is Onaway, about ten miles west, or Rogers City, on... More
