Sightseeing

Falls are easy to see from a short walk from the parking lot. Rent kayaks to paddle the river above the falls or hike to the bottom and swim across to go under the falls. Recommend taking a life jacket or noodle for that adventure.

A no-frills, local restaurant just 4 miles from our home with a variety of down-home cooking options and friendly service. Fried chicken fingers with ranch dressing, onion strings with jalapeño buttons, and grilled squash are some of our favorites. It’s a great place for inexpensive takeout, and you can’t beat the price on their hand dipped ice cream any time of day.
