“Our Favorite Place to Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We own a timeshare in the White Mountains and...no matter what time of year we visit, we always include a visit to Jackson Falls - the views are spectacular, the water is pristine, occasionally it was so warm we were able to immerse ourselves in water (cold but refreshing) and the one time we went in February the ice "sculptures" were breathtaking.....definitely include Jackson Falls on your itinerary when visiting this area - it's a 'must see'!!!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

It's well worth the walk or detour to check out the falls. I've been here twice, once on a hot day when there wasn't a lot of water running. I wanted to go swimming, but I wasn't prepared. The other time was when it's was a lot cooler and there had recently been a rain storm. The water was rushing by, it's was magnificent. I would like to have a picnic here.

“Water was low, but still a great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Plenty of roadside parking, shady and sunny areas available along the river. You can also drive up past the Eagle Mountain House for more places to swim.

“A very nice place to experience with a picnic and swimsuit....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This was a beautiful place. You can sit right on rocks and dip your fit into the water. If you bring a suit you can go into the water. When we were there children were sliding and bathing in the falls. It's a beautiful spot for couples or families.
