Amnicon Falls State Park Current conditions

Trails

All trails are open. Enjoy the beautiful views along the Amnicon River as you hike the Thimbleberry Trail. Due to heavy rains, the Thimbleberry will have some muddy spots and the Snowshoe Trail is going to be wet in the lower areas for a few days. Pets are allowed on all trails throughout the park, but remember that they must be leashed at all times and cleaned up after.

River

The river levels are relatively high for this time of year, especially since the park received over 3 inches of rain in the last week.

Lower Falls
Lower Falls and the Horton Covered Bridge.

Upper Falls
Upper Falls.

The majority of fishing is now open on the river. Fishing regulations for the Amnicon River are found under Lake Superior Tributaries and special regulations. A fishing license is required and an inland waters trout stamp is required if fishing for trout.

Nature

Fall is in full swing here at Amnicon. We have lost some leaves due to wind, but we still have spectacular colors and colors are nearing peak. Our local ruffed grouse population has begun moving back into our campground, so take a drive through and be on the lookout!

Camping

Don't move firewood!

Don't move firewood!Due to the potential of carrying harmful tree pests and diseases, Wisconsin has restrictions for moving firewood.

The campground is open year-round drinking water will be on until Oct. 16. Campsites 7-35 are reservable mid-May through mid-October while sites 1-6 are first-come, first-served year-round.

Due to construction, we don’t currently have somewhere for campers to fill, but we do have drinking water available.

Amnicon Falls State Park is a rustic campground and there is not electricity or showers, but showers at Pattison State Park can be used by Amnicon campers. Amnicon Falls does not have a dump station.

Camping reservations can be made online or by calling 888-947-2757.

Shelter reservations

If you are wondering about having a wedding or other event at the park, please contact Natalie Brown by email or phone at 715-398-3000.

More information

The park entrance is currently under construction, but we are still open!

Office hours vary. If the office is not open, there is a self-registration box located on the front of the office. Prices and instructions are on the box for your convenience. A vehicle admission sticker is required year-round.

Just like all state parks, Amnicon Falls is carry-in, carry-out. Visitors to our picnic areas, shelters and other day-use areas are encouraged to pack reusable items and are required to take garbage and recyclables home. There are garbage cans located in bathrooms for small items and dumpsters located in the campground for those who are camping. Please help us keep the park beautiful by not littering.
