Goal: Wisconsin Waterfalls

Last updated on Oct 13, 2017 @ 11:34 am

Goal: Visit all Wisconsin waterfalls, hike the trails, take photos.  Oddity that I found – no other site seems to have a complete list of falls.  Maybe I haven’t found the right site yet… Create Wikipedia pages for those that don’t exist?

IMPORTANT: This is a work in progress – don’t trust my data yet until verified!

“Waterfalling in Wisconsin” seems to be best source – Facebook / Amazon

 

Wisconsin Falls That I Have Visited

  1. Stephens Falls – Governor Dodge State Park
  2. Little Sand Cave / Big Sand Cave – Wyalusing State Park  (do these fulfill criteria for an actual waterfall?)
