Property information


  • The Menominee River State Recreation Area is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. The property encompasses 7,652 acres of land in Dickinson and Menominee Counties, Michigan, and Marinette County, Wisconsin. Three management units make up the recreation area: Piers Gorge Unit in the north, Quiver Falls Unit, and Pemene Falls Unit in the south. Combined, these units feature 17 miles of undeveloped river corridor with both rocky gorges and wide open stretches that offer a destination for whitewater rafting and kayaking, as well as hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing.


The property is located in northeast Marinette County along several miles of the Menominee River. No single road traverses the entire property. The recreation area has many maintained access roads with parking areas that connect to town roads. These roads are not plowed in the winter and may be difficult to travel during wet periods of the year. Menominee River State Recreation Area map (entire area) [PDF]
