The Wolverine state has many beautiful attractions, and a little over 200 of them are Waterfalls. Most of Michigan’s waterfalls are in the Upper Peninsula. Ocqueoc Falls is the only recognized waterfall in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. So to see and experience these beautiful natural resources of Michigan in person, you will need to visit the UP. If you haven’t done that yet, what are you waiting for. I have to admit I’ve only made one trip to the UP, and can’t wait to do it again. We saw as many waterfalls as possible, and enjoyed every minute of our tour.

Visiting the UP is like being in another world, because it is. The Upper and Lower peninsulas of Michigan couldn’t be more different. It’s something you have to experience to understand, This year we are hoping to visit Copper Harbor at the very top of Michigan. Along with all of the waterfalls you also have the famed Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, long tracts of native forests, and of course the small town charm that is appropriate for the slower pace of life in these parts.

In researching this project, I came across the work of Phil Stagg Photography, who was kind enough to let us feature his work in our gallery of Waterfalls. He does great work as you will see. Contact Phil at or reach out to Phil at 231-920-8416.
