The Wisconsin DNR has named its "State Park Treasure" and it's right here in the Northland.

Amnicon Falls, which is 10 miles southeast of Superior, takes home the title.

The DNR announced the winner of their "State Park Treasure" contest on their Facebook page. The contest pegged 16 of Wisconsin's lesser-known and used state parks in a March Madness-like bracket.

"To be able to have Amnicon Falls win the contest is such an awesome opportunity to show the rest of the state what a gem we have up here," said Brittany Berrens, the Director of Marketing and Social Media at the Superior-Douglas County Visitor Bureau. 

Douglas County is home to two state parks, including Amnicon Falls and the larger Pattison State Park.
