Superior Falls (2021)

Superior Falls - Long Exposure

Last day of September 2021 and I’m starting off by returning to Superior Falls for things I missed in the past. Back in 2018 I explored from the bottom which also gives great views along Lake Superior (you can see that trip by clicking here). Today’s task was seeing the falls from above. I completely … Read more

Presque Isle Spillway

Presque Isle Spillway

Another stop in a very remote part of Vilas County, this time in the tiny town of Presque Isle, Wisconsin. I actually mistakenly stopped here because I had it marked down as a waterfall as I am not normally a fan of man-made spillways, but this one does have a bit of charm. If you … Read more

Slippery Rock Falls / Chute Pond County Park

Chute Pond County Park – View of Slippery Rock Falls from the bottom

While in Mountain I stopped for a quick lunch and sized up my route. Weather is still great and it’s only just past mid-day. Next stop is at Chute Pond County Park for…you guessed it…another waterfall. This one is super easy to reach via the park’s flat walking trail. Start off at the dam and … Read more

High Falls & Spillway

High Falls in Crivitz, Wisconsin

Lost all of yesterday from the yellowjacket sting and still feeling crappy this morning, however I am not letting it stop me. Too many great places to visit – starting with this morning’s first feature at High Falls & Spillway in Crivitz, Wisconsin. Access is very easy – just park at the High Falls Dam … Read more

Cazenovia Memorial Park

Cazenovia Dam & Spillway - View from road bridge

Final stop on this weekend’s trip is Cazenovia Dam & Spillway. I don’t often visit man-made spillways but this one has a unique shape so I figured why not? Best views from above would be from the dam walkway but there are KEEP OFF DAM signs so I passed on that today. Walking down the … Read more

Mill Pond Spillway

Mill Pond Spillway - Angle View

Last stop on my short weekend trip is just south of Grant Park on the Oak Creek Parkway at a small man-made “waterfall” (spillway) called Mill Pond Spillway. Not much fanfare at this location – only one small historical sign entitled “Millstones from Fowle Mill” detailing how the millpond was created to power the grist … Read more

Douglas Mill Pond Spillway

Douglas Mill Pond Spillway - View from below wading in Douglas Creek

I mostly try to visit only naturally-occurring waterfalls but today I’m making a quick stop in Melrose, Wisconsin to see the Douglas Mill Pond Spillway. Access from above is very easy – simply park near the intersection at Mill Street and Hogg Street and walk over the bridge. Not the ideal viewing spot but you … Read more

Rock Cut Dam & Swimming Falls

Swimming Falls - Looking over the falls from upstream

Back on the hunt for waterfalls at Rock Dam County Park & Campground near the remote small town of Willard, Wisconsin.  According to my notes this should be accessible through the campground. Nobody was available that day so I went around to Rock Cut Dam first to check for public access. Some excellent views of … Read more

Eau Galle Spillway

Eau Galle Spillway

Another quick stop for my checklist at Eau Galle Spillway. Not really interested much in man-made “waterfalls” but since I wasn’t far away I decided to make the drive just for laughs. Access is very easy via Eau Galle Park which is just a small roadside stop that time has forgotten and looks to be … Read more

Lake Redstone Falls

Lake Redstone Falls - Falls/Spillway

First stop on the morning of the 26th was another coin-flip chance at a waterfall located at Lake Redstone in LaValle, Wisconsin.  Absolutely zero people were here on arrival around 8am and the lake was mirror still. A large flat mound that looks like a dam / man-made feature?  Hmm thats strange, I was told … Read more
