Ocqueoc FallsComments Off on Ocqueoc Falls
Ocqueoc Falls, near Rogers City, is remarkable primarily because it is the only substantive waterfall in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. At the main drop the Ocqueoc River plunges less than three feet over a limestone ledge to create a deep pool that is a very popular swimming hole in the summer months. Though in this shot the falls appear quite pristine, in reality it is a very well developed recreation site including a day use parking lot, campground, trail system, and extensive riverside landscaping. It really is a nice place to hang out on a hot day, and the users are respectful and appreciative of the natural setting. There is something wonderfully nostalgic about cooling off in a good old fashioned swimming hole.
