Things To Do, Places To Go

The Waterfalls Tour

Marinette County and Crivitz Recreation Area tourism materials refer to the Waterfalls Tour, and brag our area is the Waterfall Capitol of the Midwest. While waterfalls are abundant in Marinette County, most are more spillway or a cascade, rather than true waterfalls. There's nothing here to rival Niagara, but what we do have is very picturesque and most are very approachable. Visiting them is a nice outing with great photo opportunities in almost every season.

The “tour” is simply a long winding day trip from one spot to the next. Details on all the area waterfalls, along with directions and information on hiking level of difficulty can be found in the Crivitz Recreation Area tourism book stored in a drawer in each condo kitchen. Details are also provided on their website:

Here's a description and directions to just few:

You can access one at 12 Foot Falls County Park on the Pike River just west of Highway 141 off of Highway 8. Take Lilly Lake Rd south from highway 8 and follow the signs.

From 12 Foot Falls it is a short hike to 18 Foot Falls. Go north on Twelve Foot Falls Road and take the second sand road on the right. Drive or walk 1/2 mile back to the falls.

Strong Falls is located on the Peshtigo River in Goodman Park between Highway 8 and County Highway C on Parkway Road (County I).

Smalley Falls is a chute falls with many boulders. Take 141 about 5 miles north of Pembine to Morgan Park Road, follow it until the turn-off for Smalley Falls. Long Slide Falls is also right down the road.
