Waterfall Wednesday: Sturgeon Falls in Ottawa National Forest

Sturgeon Falls

I can’t get enough of the great shots of snowmelt-fueled U.P. rivers. Go Waterfalling’s page on Sturgeon Falls says:

Sturgeon Falls is located in the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness in Ottawa National Forest. The Sturgeon River has carved out a deep, forested gorge, that is 300 feet deep in some places. The falls are located deep in the gorge. The drop is only 30 feet, but the river is very powerful. Above the falls the river is well over 100 feet wide. It then narrows into a chute only about 30 feet wide before shooting over the falls, spraying mist in all directions.

Read on for directions. The Sturgeon River is a Michigan Wild & Scenic river as well!

Check Sven’s photo out on black and see more in his UP Michigan Waterfalls slideshow.

  1. You’re very welcome Sven! I feel like I get to live vicariously through photos like this and I know the same is true for many readers of Michigan in Pictures!
