Ocqueoc Falls Scenic Site

The largest waterfall in the Lower Peninsula

Ocqueoc Falls is the largest waterfall in Michigan's Lower Peninsula and the only universally-accessible waterfall in the United States. Ocquoec provides approximately six miles of hiking, biking and cross-country skiing opportunities with three marked loops. The groomed ski trails are track set. Snowshoers and fat tire bikers - please take care to keep out of set ski tracks. Fat tire bikes are allowed but there are no groomed fat tire bike trails.

After hiking the trails, take a swim in the falls! At this site, you can see where the Ocqueoc River has cut a channel through the limestone bedrock that underlays the entire region. During spawning season, you can see the salmon actually swim through these underground channels. The remnants of an old mill race can be seen just above the falls. A State Forest Campground is located at the falls as well.
