“the largest waterfall in Indiana”
Cataract Falls is a waterfall located in northern Owen County in the west central part of the U.S. state of Indiana. The largest waterfall by volume and by height, (combined height of both upper and lower falls), in the state, it is part of the Lieber State Recreation Area.
Cataract Falls consists of two sets of waterfalls on Mill Creek separated by about 1 mile (1.6 km). Both falls consist of a series of drops. The total height of the Upper Falls is approximately 45 feet (14 m), while that of the Lower Falls is about 30 feet (9.1 m).
Immediately downstream of the Lower Falls, Mill Creek enters the southern end of Cagles Mill Lake, near the towns of Cunot and Cataract. The falls are just offState Road 42 and close to State Road 243.
Great stop to get out and stretch. 2 spots to see the falls, ands it's free. We enjoyed walking around a bit but, not much walking required.
The falls are a pretty long drive from the highway and it costs $7 to get in. The water was beautiful and I stood outside listening to the sound for quite a while, but I am not sure if it was worth the time and money to get there.
Super awesome waterfalls, not just for Indiana! Theres a cool covered bridge too. Definitely worth the detour.
Worth the stop! Beautiful place.
