Whitefsh falls is a pleasant spot on the Whitefish river in the interior of Alger County. It is just off US 41 about 3.5 miles northwest of the intersection for Trenary. It is accessed from a poorly marked and no longer maintained State Forest campround. A modest fall, it would be a pleasant place for a picnic and a swim on a hot day. It is not to be confused with the better known Laughing Whitefish Falls on the Laughing Whitefish River. The two rivers, one flowing north to Lake Superior and one flowing south to Lake Michigan, nearly touch at there headwaters near Sundell.
