Dawson Falls, Clearwater

4.6
#4 of 6 in Parks in Clearwater
Embark on a short and easy, yet rewarding trail that leads to Dawson Falls. Bring your camera along to capture the lush wooded scenery at various points along your journey. A leisurely pace will take about one hour to the main attraction: an impressive cascade with a height of 20 m (66 ft) and width of 90 m (295 ft). If you want even quicker access to the falls, take tour bus, as the bus parking lot lies closer to the main attraction than the general parking lot.

Where to stay in Clearwater

Camping grounds and RV parks make up the majority of options in the small town, with the most scenic of these located slightly west of the center, on the shores of Dutch Lake. Don't expect much in the way of amenities at these sites--if you're looking for something more luxurious, reserve in advance to secure a room in one of the town's few bed and breakfasts.
