Worth a slight uphill hike to see
Aug 2021 • Couples
Parking lot across the street from falls allows easy access.
The walk to the falls is short but slightly uphill. The falls themselves are small- yet worth the trek- something exhilarating about falling water. Just don’t expect some mammoth spectacle

Beautiful Falls
Jun 2021 • Friends
After a short walk on a paved road, we had a lovely view of the falls. It was raining and the wooden climbing paths were slippery, so we just enjoyed the view.

a day away the last of may

Dunnings is well maintained. Very clean surroundings. Walking paths were the best. Climbing the stairs to the waterfalls overlook gave a feeling of safety.

I wish there were more picnic tables
May 2021
There is one picnic table overlooking the river/stream near the parking area. It's a shame there aren't more because this park gets busy.

If you take the walk up to the waterfall, there are two additional picnic tables.

Overall, I think if they could add a few more it would allow more people to sit, relax and enjoy the area.

Easy Access
Mar 2021
I visited the springs with my friend and her toddler twins. The path to the spring was stroller friendly and lovely to see. There were some stairs to climb up to the tops of the spring, but we didn't venture that this time. I am eager to go back when the trees full of leaves.

Nice Little Waterfall in Decorah
Aug 2020
We visited Dunning's Spring Park to see the waterfall while visiting Decorah. It's a lovely little waterfall right in town. A short paved path leads to the waterfall. It's claimed to be 200 feet high, but nowhere near that height, but still really scenic and unexpected here in Iowa. You can climb up the side of it to reach the spring that comes out of the cliff above. Being so easy to visit, it's very popular and was quite crowded when we visited.

Nice

Very pretty area. You can ride your bike up to the falls or walk up to the falls. There are a couple of benches available and nice shade.

Short side trip
Sep 2020 • Family
Short little hike. Can be extended if needed on to a longer hiking trail. At the end there are many steps. Still beautiful view if you don’t want to complete the steps

Easy walk with kids
Aug 2020
Its an easy walk in and the toddlers/young children around us seemed to have a lot of fun. The parking area is along a river which makes a great stop for a picnic. If you are up for a walk you can get there easily from downtown Decorah.

Serene and Sensational
Jun 2020 • Family
Friends of ours who live in the area took us to see this place and it did not disappoint! The view is absolutely breathtaking. The water is like ice water, but refreshing with a quick dip of your feet on a hot day. Definitely climb to the top of the stairs located to the left of the bridge to view the falls from the top. We also brought along our dog and had no problems.
