Bad River Rapids:  View Video
Latitude: 46.37221  Longitude: -90.64118
Another site in Copper Falls State Park.  This is just one of many, many rapids along the Bad River... this rapids is just north of the footbridge over the Bad River which is just east of the Copper Falls State Park concession building.  This footbridge is the start of a rather difficult walk of about 2.5 miles to view Copper Falls, Brownstone Falls, and the Tyler Forks Cascades (Copper Falls literature doesn't adequately warn you that the round trip walk is 2.5 miles with many, many, many difficult steps!).
  Copper Falls State Park is 2.3 miles North Northeast of Mellon.

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
