Pattison State Park - part 1

The Black River begins its winding journey about 22 miles southwest of the park at Black Lake on the Wisconsin - Minnesota border. As it passes through Pattison State Park, it drops 31 feet over Little Manitou Falls, forms Interfalls Lake, and then reaches the spectacular Big Manitou Falls. After leaving the Pattison State Park gorge, the river meanders another five miles to the Nemadji River, which it joins for the final ten mile journey to Lake Superior.
The 165 feet vertical drop of Big Manitou Falls is the highest in Wisconsin and the fourth highest east of the Rocky Mountains.
Camp Pattison Co. 3663 - Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) - the CCC left a legacy of beautiful buildings. Each night we attended the Nature Program - the staff at Pattison do a great job. They make you feel welcome and at home.
