The park has 1.8 miles of trails. There are a number of short trails along both sides of the Amnicon River, offering varied views of the falls and surrounding scenery.

Swimming Swimming

While swimming and wading are permitted, caution is urged. Water levels and flows fluctuate and river conditions change from day to day. Rocks may be slippery. Never allow children to swim unsupervised. Amnicon Falls State Park has no designated beaches and no lifeguards.

No diving or jumping. Jumping from rock walls into the river is dangerous and not permitted. River levels vary, resulting in unknown water depths and current changes. In addition, rocks fall from the gorge walls and are hidden in the dark water.

Picnicking Shelters Picnic areas

Three picnic areas can be found along the river starting at the park office. Picnic tables and grills are also available in the area of the covered bridge parking lot.

Fishing Fishing

Although better known for or its scenery than its fishing, the Amnicon River sometimes produces excellent catches. A warm water stream, it flows north into Lake Superior. Below the park it changes from a fast-flowing river to one that is slow, wide and meandering. A variety of species that live in the lower river and Lake Superior migrate up the Amnicon to spawn each year. The best fishing is downstream from the Lower Falls. All anglers 16 years and older must have a fishing license. In addition, anyone fishing for or keeping trout must have a trout stamp.

Hunting Trapping Hunting and trapping

Hunting and trapping are allowed in the open areas of the park during the Wisconsin state parks hunting and trapping time frame. Trapping is not permitted in closed areas as noted on the park hunting map or within 100 yards of any designated use area, including trails. Certain trap types are restricted on state park properties. For more information, please see:
