Just south of Ashland about 20 minutes is Copper Falls State Park. One of the more popular Northern Wisconsin State parks due to the waterfalls and excellent hiking trails. The camping is very nice with many wooded sites. In the spring time after snow melt and some spring rains the falls roar with alot of flow. The trails were constructed by the CCC and WPA programs during the depression. The Park is located just off of HWY 13 in Mellen Wisconsin.

The steel head season just completed on the North shore streams. In springtime anglers come to catch the fish that are migrating upstream to spawn. The streams rush with snow melt and spring rains. The North shore of Minnesota has many great fishing streams that empty into Lake Superior.
