Beautiful and peaceful. Be sure to wear your water shoes! Several people that day had forgotten theirs and ended up wearing their regular shoes. The rocks can be climbed but are slippery. Also the horseflies were bad in September, so don't wear perfume. A very...More

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.

My kids loved this place and did not want to leave. The water is a little chilly but on a hot day it's refreshing. Fun to climb the rocks and my kids jumped off the bottom. Great place to swim and have a picnic lunch.

We had such a great time swimming here! You can slide down a few feet from the bottom but not the entire way. Otherwise, you can hike around to the top and swim/slide along in the rocks in the shallow water up there. Quite a...More

This is a little out of the way and there are no amenities close. Stop in Winona or Eminence for any supplies if you are going to spend the day. There is a small parking lot that fills up fast on busy days. A short...More

Rocky Falls is not a fishing hole. But there's great fishing nearby in the Current River and Jack's Fork. Before you go, be sure you are familiar with Missouri fishing regulations. You can search for "Missouri Department... More

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
