Fall Color at the entrance to Amnicon Falls State Park
BTW It's Amnicon Falls not Amincon Falls nor Amicon Falls. A bit of a tonque-twister, eh?

Visiting the Superior, WI area
Amnicon Falls is located about 15 miles east of Superior, Wisconsin a short distance off US Highway 2. It offers 36 nicely spaced and wooded campsites and some attractive hiking and walking trails. It is more oriented towards tent camping as it has vault toilets and water . . . but no electricity, no showers, no electric hookups nor dump station. However most of the sites are level so it is feasible for RVers who don't need any hookups. The park is open year round and thus available for wintertime camping and snowshoeing.
If you are traveling through the area, the park would make a nice stop for a picnic and an easy hike around the falls. Typically the water levels for the falls are down in the fall, but the color of the fall foliage adds scenic compensation.
