Beautiful place!
Sep 2021
Had a tip this place was worth the short trip while staying in Joplin. It proved to be more than we expected. Mesmerizing and relaxing. Easy to maneuver close down to the water. Amazing waterfall!

Peaceful waterfall
Sep 2021
This was a beautiful location. There is parking along the road a short walk from the falls themselves. I could have spent hours here just listening to the sounds and taking in the view.

Must See in Joplin
Jul 2021
Truly the best place to visit in Joplin, MO. You can swim in the spring, summer, and fall and in the winter you can experience relatively warm weather. Pack some hiking boots, flip flops, or a picnic basket! Make sure to bring your camera.

Amazing Spot (Kid Friendly)
Jul 2021 • Family
This spot is the perfect place to stop for a dip. It’s a great place for passing through, we were there for a little over an hour but I’m sure you could make a day of it. I read reviews that talked about parking and no signs so I was concerned, but let me assure you that you need no signs you’ll know you’re there when you get there. As for parking, it’s a natural attraction so you park at the side of the road it’s no big deal. The water is cool-cold but it feels amazing once you’re in. Definitely coming back from Saint Louis and bringing more of the family, this trip was just for me and my daughter who is 10 and she loved it!

P.S. There is a street before getting to the falls that can take you to the other side where there are 6 parking spots, you can get out and walk the trail along the water, there were ppl hanging out there in the water as well. Spoke to a lady whose 5yr old kid was in the middle of the river with the current going…made me nervous but she was above water and having fun.

Very convenient, pretty and peaceful

If you have anyone with difficulty hiking this is a perfect little waterfall to see with very minimal effort. Parking right on the road, and you can see the falls from the car if needed. It was peaceful and pretty and I'm glad we stopped.

Worth some time to visit.

Nice and not too crowded. You can fish from some rocks that are out in the stream. No picnic tables or other amenities so you would need to plan accordingly.

Don't Bother

First, there is parking for maybe 3 cars. Stay away if driving an rv. Second, I've seen bigger falls at water treatment plants and I have been many places in this world. I very rarely give a negative review but this one needs it.

Worth driving a couple of miles out of the way
May 2021 • Family
Only a couple of Miles off of the main path. Totally worth stopping by. It was a little cool the day that we passed by so we did not make it a long day but it was very nice.

Great quick detour
Apr 2021 • Family
Looking for a few minutes to stay occupied and ran over to the falls. Really scenic and fun. Kept my family busy for 30 mins of scrambling and photo taking. Easy off I44 for a leg stretch.
