“Like a mountain stream”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Scrambling up to the spring's source requires some effort and careful placement of the feet. It's fun, though, and the water is icy cold on a hot day. The kids had fun building dams across the stream. Lovely setting, great for picnics.

“Screen Saver”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

I took a picture of the springs that is so beautiful I use it as a screen saver. Has an "otherworldly" feel to it.

“Early manufacturing”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Nice storyboard on site detailing early use of water. On a hot day, this is a nice, cool spot. Great for a picnic lunch anytime. Stairs leading to top of springs are an easy activity.

“Don't miss this great city park & natural spring...”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Dunnings Spring is a must see for any visitor to Decorah. A natural spring runs out of the hillside year round and down a steep hill making an almost waterfall =) Once the site of a grist mill, it is now a favorite city park. Great place to sit & cool off during the summer!

“Great picnic area!”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Great place to take a packed lunch. Hiking trail. Nice photo opp. Ice Cave (not much of a cave but rather a small entry into a limestone bluff) just up the road.
