Willow River State Park

Not bad, the waterfall was beautiful! However, we went the "Lake" to walk along it and apparently it had been drained so there is only a small river at this point.

Beautiful Falls

There is also sport climbing in a cave right next to the falls.

Falls Worth the Hike

We came in from the River Road trailhead because the other lots were full. Beautiful stepped falls made it worthwhile. The falls were pretty crowded (Labor Day weekend).
