Dunnings Spring – Decorah Iowa

Dunnings Spring Falls
Dunnings Spring, Iowa’s most breathtaking waterfall.  Located in the small town of Docorah in the northeastern part of the state. A bit out of the way from the interstate but worth it.  Dunning Spring is a cascading waterfall that drops 200-feet over its course.  With the main part of the falls dropping 40 feet.
It was a hot day in June during our visit.  Walking up to those falls and feeling the cool mist of Dunnings Spring was a refreshing treat.  They have a nice stone bridge at the parking lot that leads to the top of the falls which comes out of the mouth of a cave. It is roughly a hundred yards or so up to the top of the trail.  I took my eldest up to the top and she did great with it.
Family Time
Dunnings Spring is found off a small narrow road that leads to the base of the falls.  There is a small parking lot with only a few spots. We were there on semi busy day and it was a bit of a hassle.  We lucked out and were driving up just as somebody was leaving.  Others were not so fortunate.  However, any issue you might have with parking Dunning Springs is worth it.
