Copper Falls State Park is a 3,068-acre (1,242 ha) Wisconsin state park in which the Bad River and its tributary the Tylers Forks flow through a gorge and drop over several waterfalls. Old Copper Culture Indians and later European settlers mined copper in the area. The state park was created in 1929 and amenities were developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration.
