Swim at Cascade Falls

Northeast Fall River, South Dakota

based on 1 reviews


Added by Isaac Parsons

Crystal clear water, lush vegetation, and the soothing sounds of waterfalls!

Cascade Falls is 10 miles south of Hot Springs on highway 71, it is easy to access, and is a great spot for a picnic or to cool off in the cool waters on hot days! There are several picnic tables, vault toilets and a large parking area, and just a short walk down to the falls. The pool at the base of the falls is beautiful blue water and has several other sections of the creek that pool up too.

There is no fee to use the area, just a few rules like no alcohol and beware of rattlesnakes. 

Make sure to clean up after yourselves and practice Leave No Trace principles.
