A very short walk or drive from "downtown" Jackson Village. Beautiful set of falls right at the roadside. A decent parking area, some picnic tables, and plenty of spots to sit in the water and cool off. Must do if you are in the area and love waterfalls.

If you are in the Jackson NH then it is worth stoping by. We walked over from our inn and although we didn't go in the water there were many kids in the water. It is very pretty and nice vista.

Beautiful place for a stop off or a day trip. I could have sat in my chair with s cooler and spent the entire day. Weather was perfect mid 80s and the water refreshing.

One of the staff at the hotel recommended this spot as a favorite locals hang out. We were so grateful for the tip! It wasn't crowded (like Diana's Baths) and there is parking right at the water. I recommend water shoes or sports sandals to walk around in the water getting to your nice flat spot to eat lunch or... More

Cannot understand why there are no signs from Jackson town to the falls? Perhaps they wish to keep them for themselves? Anyhow, worth finding and is actually only just outside town. Lovely water and lovely views, just for a short stop though so don't make a special trip there

Absolutely misleading when you pull into parking space and see the water right in front of you. Almost didn't get out because figured it was lame. IT was AWESOME!!!! Less crowded than Diana's Baths and just as beautiful. You MUST get water shoes to fully enjoy walking and hiking through the water! Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful views to see while relaxing to the soothing sounds of the river. Lots of flat places to park your beach chair, towel or blanket. You can sit and read, watch people in the water with their kids or dogs or adventure through the river. Be careful with little ones on the wet rocks though they can be slippery. The... More

A little off the beaten track, Jackson Falls is a gorgeous place to sit and picnic, swim in the pools, watch others swim in the pools and slide down the gentle falls. Quiet, set in the pines, granite rocks smooth and slippery to slide into the water from.
