Beach
“Black River Harbor has a harbor, pavilion, park, and beachfront. There's a neat suspension footbridge that you cross to get from the harbor to the shore that was built by the Army Corps of Engineers. It sways when walking and is a sturdy, yet exciting gateway to the shoreline. There are several hiking trails and 5 waterfalls along the road as the black river leads to Lake Superior. One waterfall is accessible with handicap access and others have 1/2-1 mile hikes. There are parking areas along the road and signs are helpful in letting you know what you're getting into. The Lake Ice is a sight to behold in winter!”

Park
“This is one of the largest water falls in Michigan. Its about 6.5 miles from Bruce's Crossing. Trails and overlooks are limited, but with some effort you can see a spectacular view down river.”

Campground
“Take Black River Road down to Lake Superior, follow the trail across the suspension bridge and you'll enjoy a beautiful hike to the backside of Rainbow Falls. You'll notice several other falls and their respective parking spots along your trip to the harbor. Pack a lunch and have a great day! Soak in the hot tub at the end of the day.”

Scenic Viewpoint
Park
“Short (very steep) scenic hike to a absolutely beautiful scenic view of the entire area. Kind of a secret spot. Not great for children under 3. You'll have to carry your young ones, so I wouldn't recommend it for babies, toddlers.”
