Marinette County WaterfallSpeaking of water activities, Marinette County is the waterfall capital of Wisconsin! Fifteen waterfalls are spread throughout the county on hikes of various difficulty levels. Make a day trip of it or camp in the parks!

The Brothers Three

They’ve been cranking our award-winning pizzas since 1972 – and their recipe has never changed! Pizza not your jam? Stop in for their Friday Fish Frys or Sundays and Mondays for 40 cent wings. Yum!

Tourist Park

Lighthouse at Tourist ParkAlso known as Fat Ladies Park, Tourist Park is just a hop, skip, and jump into Upper Michigan. Relax on the beautiful sandy shores or take a walk to the lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1877 and still shines today! Stop in for their open hours to take a tour.

Great Lakes Memorial Marina Park

Besides the marina itself, enjoy auto shows and Thursday night summer concerts. When there isn’t an event at this park, bring a blanket for a picnic or a book to read.

There’s so much more to the Marinette Campus than just academics; we’re intertwined with the surrounding community. We can’t wait to have you visit and see what we’re all about!
