Ocqueoc Falls (pronounced Ah-kee-ahk) is a wonderful place. It's not your typical waterfall, more like a series of rapids similar to the lower falls at Tahquamenon. Unlike at Tahquamenon, however, you can still get down into the water and splash around the rocks. Kids will...More

Hadn't been here and wanted to check it out since it's the only waterfall in the lower peninsula. The DNR has built a huge parking lot, paths and a picnic area so it's well maintained. I've seen so many wonderful waterfalls on the UP so...More

I loved the falls. They were easily accessible and very picturesque. A great place for a family outing on a warm day. wading and swimming is encouraged but I would recommend some kind of water shoe.

The only waterfalls in Michigan's Lower Peninsula may not compare to what the U.P. has to offer (especially Tahquamenon), but they're certainly worth a visit. The site is well-maintained and the falls photo-worthy. And surprisingly, apparently you're allowed to wade into them! (Wasn't expecting that!)...More

I think the falls would be too rough for a three year old in a kayak.The water is quite fast moving and rocky. You would be better off to go to one of the beaches on Grand Lake or Lake Huron. There is a sandy beach with... More

My parents own a house near there, and if you want to talk about renting, contact me, but I have never camped in that area.
