Description - Wagner Falls State Park is located near the small town of Munising. Nestled among virgin pine and hemlock a scenic half-mile hike takes visitors to sights of Wagner Creek plummeting 20 feet. This undeveloped site does not offer camping.

The state park rests between two federal lands, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and Hiawatha National Forest. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore preserves and protects 40 miles of northern Michigan shoreline along Lake Superior. Multicolored sandstone cliffs, broad beaches, sand bars, dunes, waterfalls, inland lakes, ponds, marshes, hardwood and coniferous forests characterize the site. It is an extension of the western portion of Hiawatha National Forest, 879,000 acres of rolling hills forested with northern hardwoods, white pine and hemlock, and flatlands that are covered by red pine, jack pine and aspen.

Attractions - Wagner Falls State Park sits on Wagner Creek amid a North Woods forest. Folks visit the park for the sole purpose of viewing the set of falls. A short hiking trail from the parking lot provides access to the creek.

Minutes north of the park lies Alger Creek, featuring another set of waterfalls.

Recreation - Viewing scenery, nature photography and hiking are the recreations enjoyed at this small park.

Climate - The Upper Peninsula normally experiences mild summers with average temperatures near 70 degrees F (21 degrees C). Winter temperatures average 14 degrees F (-10 degrees C). Rain and snowmelt in the region can reach up to 200 inches annually. Travelers should be aware that significant amounts of snow could fall within a relatively short period of time resulting in hazardous road conditions.

Location - Wagner Falls State Park is located near the small town of Munising. To reach the park travel one mile east of Munising on M-28 and a quarter mile west on M-94.
