Missouri’s waterfalls tend to be spread out so that it requires a bit of driving between each of the falls to see multiple falls. Rocky Falls is south-central Missouri, not terribly far from Arkansas. Rocky Falls is one of the easier waterfalls to visit in Missouri, as it only requires a very short hike from the parking lot.
At about 30′ tall, Rocky Falls is a pretty waterfall, though I did show up in April and there wasn’t a whole lot of water flowing over it. It seems to be popular as a swimming hole, as there is a lot of water that collects in a pool below the falls. Since not as much water was flowing over the falls, some people took advantage of exploring the falls further up.
- There are a number of different ways to get to the falls. If on MO-106, head to State Highway H. If headed east on MO-106, it would be a right turn onto H.
- Drive 4 miles on State Highway H, and then turn left on Highway NN.
- Drive 2 miles on State Highway NN, and then turn right onto County Road NN-526.
- Drive a short distance to the parking are for Rocky Falls Shut-ins.
