Kimball Falls, Wisconsin

Kimball Falls is not a particularly large waterfall, and I’m not really sure whether I would go and search for it if there weren’t a number of other really great waterfalls nearby.  It is found between Ironwood/Hurley and Saxon.  In that stretch, you’ve got Interstate, Peterson, Saxon, and Superior Falls, all of which are more interesting.  Along the way, though, you’ll pass this small falls, and it’s very easy to stop and view them.

The falls are found at the Kimball Falls park, which is a very nice park.  If I lived in the area, I’d visit it frequently.  When we visited in October, the fall colors were absolutely spectacular last year, and so the trees were ablaze in reds, oranges, and yellows.  It had also rained significantly in the past few days, making Kimball Falls seem at least a little bit more powerful.

Directions:
1) As you’re heading west on US-2 from Ironwood, you’ll find the park in between Interstate/Peterson Falls and Saxon/Superior Falls.  Heading west, the road to the falls will be on your left.
2) The name of the road is logically Park Rd.  Turn left onto Park Road, and there should be a sign indicating the way to Kimball Falls.
3) Park wherever parking is available.  At the time we showed up, I do not think we were able to park in the park itself, but there was parking nearby.  The falls are very obvious from the bridge crossing right over them.  Take some time to explore the park itself.  If I remember correctly, there was a trail that led I know not where, but it looked like it could be fun to explore.

  1. I used to fish there when I was a kid. The park wasn’t far from my grandparents farm. Caught a huge walleye there. There is now a home built by the falls which was sad to see.
