Grand Falls

Known as the largest continuously flowing natural waterfall in Missouri, Grand Falls is a must-stop-photo-op for visitors. Located on Shoal Creek, just a few minutes downstream from Wildcat Park, “The Falls” plunges 12 feet down a 163-foot-wide ledge of solid chert before crashing into jagged crags and then flowing peacefully to the south.

DIRECTIONS: From I-44 West take Joplin exit 6 (Hwy 86 South). Go 1 block to the round-about and exit at the first right (west) onto Glendale Blvd Follow Glendale Blvd approx 1.5 miles Turn left (south) on Jackson and cross over low-water bridge. Immediately after the bridge, turn right (west) on Riverside Drive and follow for approx 1 mile. Grand Falls cascades by your right. Parking at the Falls is limited and unpaved, there are no facilities.
