Summary: This small waterfall is one of the many waterfalls in Marinette County and is fairly typical of the type of waterfall you find in this area. It is located in a county park that is just off of US 41 making it easy to visit. The surrounding landscape is as interesting as the falls themselves.

The lower falls is a narrow chute with a total drop of about 10 feet. The upper falls is a wider slide that is about 6 feet high.
