While camping at the Echo Bluff we decided to take a drive out and check out Rocky Falls. It was probably about a 30 minute drive or so, but it was pretty. Parking is limited here, but we were able to find spots easy enough. There are a few picnic tables and a restroom available as well. Personally, the falls... More

There was way too many people here to enjoy the site and the out house was horrible! Needs a changing area also because there is no place to change into your swimsuit.

We visited Rocky Falls on our trip to Eminence, MO mid July. It is a must see if you are in that area. The water cascades down into a clear pool of water with a rocky bottom. The falls are not hard to climb, but be careful, anywhere there is running water, the rocks are slick. Water shoes are a... More

Scenery was breathtaking. Water was very cool and completely clear. Lots of room for the lots of people there. There is no life guard. I'd recommend staying out of the extremely shallow end under the trees as we saw different snakes there but didn't see anyone where it was deep. I do not recommend letting children climb the waterfall as... More

We stopped in during the evening hours on a week night. It was very peaceful and the falls were awesome.

We visited Rocky Falls with the intent of hiking from here along the OT to Klepzig Mill. And we did. It was a great hike once we got past the overgrown brush about 1/2 mile in. The brush gave me a bad case of chiggers which I am still scratching a week later. So beware!

Rocky Falls is just a shirt drive out of Eminence. It is not too deep (deepest point is 7-8 feet unless it rains). Fun, easy snorkeling. It is shallow right where the falls hits the water so that is a great spot. Bring goggles, minnow net, and bucket :) Beautiful. It is not cold, (like the nearby, spring-fed Current River).... More

We love this place and go every time we are in Eminence Missouri. Yes, it's crowded on weekends but it's still a fun time. Bring a small grill and make lunch, crack open a beer, set up your chairs and have fun. Best part...it's free and refreshing on a hot day.

We always make time to stop at Rocky Falls when in Eminence. The scenery is beautifully unique. Nice place for a picnic and afternoon swim.
