Seriously if there wasn't a sign pointing to it, I wouldn't even noticed. People were just taking a quick photo and walking back to their cars. Total waste of time.

No entry fee to view falls. Viewing point from a bridge. Good access and not a lot of people there. The falls were very good and would recommend going to this attraction.
