Goal: Wisconsin Waterfalls

Goal: Visit all Wisconsin naturally-occurring waterfalls.  This list (generally) does not include various man-made spillways and unremarkable rapids/creeks.

Most of these were added from the Wisconsin Waterfalls Travel Guide by Bob Schneider at waterfallswisconsin.com which is probably the best single resource for the state. Other books exist but are not as complete – I have referenced them at the bottom of this page if interested.

Waterfalls by Wisconsin County

Man-Made But Still Nice

I’m not the biggest fan of concrete dams, but some people like them. Many more spillways and man-made waterfalls/fountains can be seen at waterfallswisconsin.com if this interests you!
