My kids and I spent many a time jumping off the cliffs around the Lower Falls and swimming at the Middle Falls. Always lots of fun. We even camped at Fowlers Campground 2 or 3 times.
This was one of my favorite waterfalls of all time. My kids and I would wade in the water to the other side of the river and float down under the waterfall. To feel it trickling onto our faces. And yes, it was cold. Did you wade in?
We visited today and we were happy it was dog friendly he was happy to walk along the river. Disappointed that there was quite a lot of overgrown blackberry bushes bankside, it’s a pity more cannot be done to remove them. Lots of mosquito’s so take some repellent!
