This is a very nice spot to visit if you're visiting this part of Missouri. Very lovely and I could sit and listen to the Falls all day. Hiking trail, picnic tables with grill, restrooms, and beauty, what more could you ask for?

My husband and I had the place to ourselves in November. I've been here during summer, too, and it wasn't crowded. The water depth and clarity are safe for children wearing flotation. The parking lot is next to the creek, so walking is easy. Think twice before you try to climb on any of the rocks. They can be wet... More

We spent a couple hours at Big Spring and decided to go on to Alley Mills but found Rocky Falls on the way. I have lived within a hours drive for the last eight years and never heard of Rocky Falls. This is very out of the way but worth the Saturday afternoon drive.

Missouri has an abundance of clear-water rivers perfect for canoes and kayaks. However, if you tire of fighting currents. We have an abundance of shut-ins as well that allow you to have a lazy day on a tube, raft or pebble beach. I like Rocky Falls for a number of reasons but there are also two other shut ins on...

Great area to swim. The falls are beautiful and the water isn't as cold as many of the rivers. You don't have to worry about kids floating away! People can climb the falls; they are slippery and caution is needed.

Great place for the kids to climb (also adults)..... great place for pictures as well. I can also see this as a great swimming hole and a picnic spot in the summer. There was a few families picnicking the day that we were there.
