Wonderful place to go to, nice swimming hole, not too deep, and wonderful places to jump off the rocks into the water. Five Stars!

I had always heard about Rocky Falls but had never been able to visit it until this last weekend. What a cool place! It has a nice little swimming hole and the climb to the top of the falls is worth the effort.

I discovered this place a few years ago but unfortunately didn't have time to stay for long. Went back recently beautiful photography, swimming, and just a peaceful area. Bring friends & family. Short walking from parking lot.

I didn't notice at first that you are coming from Arkansas. Instead of driving all the way to Eminence, you can get to the falls from Winona, Missouri. Winona is also on MO-19. At Winona, turn right onto County road H... More
