5 Minnesota Waterfalls Worth Falling For
Minnesota is known for being filled with beautiful scenery. These 5 waterfalls are surrounded by astonishing nature, hiking trails, and even camping sites. Whether you are an avid hiker that likes a challenge or you just want to take a quick walk to see the falls, Minnesota has a waterfall for you.
1. Minnehaha Falls: Minneapolis, MN
Minnehaha is city-park with a lot to offer. People mainly go to see the waterfall that showers the scenery with its beauty. You can choose to walk around the falls on the paths created for those who enjoy nature or if that’s not for you, grab a bite to eat at the Sea Salt Eatery located right above the falls. There are ice cream trucks circling the falls in the summer, old historical buildings to explore, and many spots to take some killer pictures.
The falls are still beautiful in the winter! The water freezes over so you can walk right up to the waterfall, frozen in place- proceed with caution.
2. Gooseberry Falls: Two Harbors, MN
Come listen to the roars of Gooseberry falls located in Two Harbors, Minnesota. Take a tour, explore the nature, and view the wildlife. Whether you want to take your RV to a campsite, take a hike, or enjoy one of the seasonal events; learning about birds, finding flowers, or even find the best spot to view the sunset- Gooseberry Falls has something for everyone.
3. Devil’s Kettle: Grand Marais, MN
Take a quiet hike upstream to find the amazing waterfall of Devil’s Kettle that splits and pours down in 2 different directions: one goes into a pool of water while the other plunges into the deep, dark unknown.

If that isn’t enough for you, Grand Marais also offers camping, gorgeous hiking trails, and great picnicking areas. This is definitely one to check off of your bucket list!
4. Wolf Creek Falls: Banning, MN

Get ready to be fascinated by the natural beauty of this park.
5. High Falls Grand Portage State Park
