Boney Falls Basin

Boney Falls Basin

This scenic, forested impoundment on the Escanaba River offers beautiful scenery and good wildlife viewing. Hiking trails, small boat access, and a primitive campground add to the attractiveness of this site. Eagles and hawks are commonly seen soaring above the impoundment and river corridor. Fly fishing for brown trout is popular in this area from June throughout the summer. Available at this site: restrooms, trails, picnic area, camping, fishing, boat ramp, drinking water. The river is shallow, so canoeing may be difficult during periods of low water.
