The Wagner Falls Scenic Site is a Michigan State Park, located in central Alger County, Upper Michigan. The 23-acre (0.1 km²) state scenic area protects Wagner Falls.[1]

Geography[edit]

The Wagner Falls Scenic Site is 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Munising, in Munising Township, near the junction of Michigan highways M-28 and M-94.[1] It is operated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Wagner Falls[edit]

Wagner Falls is a cascade created by Wagner Creek as it falls over a stratum of erosion-resistant dolomite.

The creek drops into a shallow gorge containing the Anna River. The Anna River then flows northward into Lake Superior.
