Pattison State Park features the highest waterfalls in Wisconsin and the fourth highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains. Big Manitou Falls is 165 high, and Little Manitou Falls is 31 feet high. Over these falls, water in the Black River tumbles from Wisconsin's northwest lowlands ecological landscape to the Superior coastal plain.

The 1,436-acre park also has a lake with a beach, nature programs and guided hikes, a nature center, camping, 9 miles of hiking trails, and abundant wildlife.

The cities of Superior, Wisconsin, and Duluth, Minnesota; Amnicon Falls State Park; Brule River State Forest; Wild Rivers State Trail; Gandy Dancer State Trail; and Lake Superior are all within an hour of Pattison State Park.

Pattison has 59 regular (family) campsites, 18 of them with electric hookups, and three backpack sites.

There is a sanitary dumping station but no sewer or water hookups. Showers and flush toilets are available during the summer.

The backpack sites are about 1.6 miles from the parking area. They have vault toilets, tables, and fire rings. Water must be carried in; garbage must be carried out.

Pattison has no designated group camping, but groups may use available individual or double sites.

Firewood may be purchased at the park office. There are soft drink vending machines outside the shelter and in the campground shower building. Nearby businesses offer ice and other items.
