“Favorite Picnic Spot in Decorah”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This little gem in Decorah is the perfect place to picnic, especially on a hot day. The area is a complete canopy of trees blocking out the sun and the air that blows off the waterfall is cool. There is nothing quite like eating at the foot of a waterfall :)

“Waterfall in Iowa”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

A very nice walkway allows you to go up and view the top of the waterfall. Easy access from the road. While not a large waterfall, it is always nice to see one. Decorah is a nice clean town in a beautiful part of Iowa, and the waterfall is worth seeing.

“Oasis in the hills of Decorah-Beautiful”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Live here and visit here often. We grab ice cream and sit there and listen to the roar of the water. Have been walking the trails and paths for years, and never is old. The roar of the water and the amount of pictures that you can take with the rocks and foliage is amazing.

“My family has to visit every time they are here!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

My family lives only 150 miles from me, but they enjoy seeing Dunnings Springs every time they visit. You can simply enjoy the waterfall from the park area or climb the wide steps up to the mouth of the springs to look into the hillside/cave.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Dunnings Spring Park has added a wonderful wooden walkway up the side of the hill so you can really experience the beauty of the area. We were just there last week and the leaves changing made it even more beautiful. Great spot to visit.
