The falls is wide and not very high. You can see it from a paved path a short distance from the parking lot. Local folks come to wade or sit in the water. There are restrooms (vault style) and picnic tables.

Family fun at gentle, layered falls. Plenty of swimming and just plain playing in the water. Bring a lawn chair and sit in grass, or climb down to easy access water. Bathrooms by ample parking lot.

We were staying in Indian River and heard about the Falls. Easy drive along M68. State Park pass required. Falls are easily accessible from the parking lot. Very beautiful and peaceful. There were folks there but I was still able to get nice pictures. Walking...More

While this can be crowded at certain times and weekends, it's really a cool place to go and enjoy some easy flowing falls that flow into what are, basically, wading pools. Pet friendly and really something to enjoy if in the area.

The word "Falls" gives you visions of water falling from a cliff, or at least it did for me. This is not that. But it is gorgeous nonetheless. It's a shallow, rocky river with some, shall we say...steps. People of all ages and several dogs...More

Stopped here on a Wednesday afternoon. Crowded. Fun little spot, we had a picnic. Bring your water shoes for sure, as it is very rocky. Kids enjoyed jumping from the rocks into the water..

This was a fun place to visit. To watch young and old laughing and having fun was such a joy. We walked up the river about 1/8th of a mile to get away from the crowd and only found small "Falls." But, it was peaceful...More

These aren't very big falls--but the fun is that everyone can get into the water and play around--and lots of folks were doing that----it was neat to see folks allowed to play in the falls like in the old days--not just look at them

Yes - this fall is small - however, it was great to sit in and let the water cascade over us. We had a great time visiting in September. It happened to be about 90 degrees which made it perfect for playing around in the...More

If you are expecting Niagara Falls, turn around and don’t waste your time. Yes, some might not view these as a waterfall, but it is still a nice little stop to break up a trip. We enjoyed the picturesque scenery and a place to stretch...More

At the main area, no tubing as it is shallow waters. Down stream you might be able to, but we walked the paths down a fair distance and it is still shallow. Don't know about distance to campground.
