Gate closed due to swiftly moving water flooding the road. I’ve crossed moving water before but didn’t trust this crossing.

Not sure I would call this a hike entering at the map trail head. There are actually several spots you could enter from the road and get to the falls. The road into the campgrounds was closed today due to water so people were parking outside the gate. The water wasn't very high so was able to just walk across with mid-high hiking boots and my feel stayed dry. The falls are still worth going to see.

We(2 adults/4 kids) entered at the Ozark Highland Trail(1 mile hike) and followed the white markers to the falls before spending the day there. It was a beautiful, easy hike that made the falls even more enticing when we made it.

Short walk from the campground entrance (it’s closed off during the winter I guess) ... walked through some water on the way.

being from NY i plan a month hiking trip to arkansas this pass January into February 2019 and from Ozark venture in 175 mile radius. some days a little farther. i'm sure glad i did. i was lucky some days reach into the high 60 & 70's. i put haw falls on the list but forgot why. since i had over 125 stops to make. i started my day while it was still dark and was passing haws at first light. i passed already a few time but today day i stop. i figure it would by a quick stop since it was about 28%. take a few pic's and be on my way. the road was closed since water was going over it but i was still able to walk across it. when i got a look at the campgrounds i said this isn't that bad. heard the water and made my way to it. boy was i surprised. what a gorgeous and unique falls. by the looks of the pictures posted the falls look so much better in the winter. the water was really good because i heard arkansas had a wet december. their was a tiny bit of ice around the edges of the rocks and the funny thing was if i step on the rocks with wet boots and i stood their for a few seconds my boots would freeze to the flat rock. lol. the morning and falls were so great that day i stayed their for more than an hour admiring god's creation. so much for a quick stop.

I've camped here on an off nearly 30 years. Awsom place , dont leave food out or the coons will enjoy it for you. Seen a few snakes over the years only 1 copper head though. I wish the drinking water spigot was safe to use but other then that a nice quite camp ground and falls. Although, right after it rains alot of people come check out the falls.

LOTS of people there. Didn't even stop. Will change review next time around once we actually get to it but this is NOT lightly trafficked.

To get to the cut off turn into the Haw Creek Falls Camground. Then go to campsite 7 where the trailhead is. The AT map does not end at the waterfalls. Keep going up the creek until you see it. The actual trail is not marked but the foot path is fairly good. There is scampering over boulders & some water crossing when the creek is running like when we went.

easy trail and so so short. kids swam in the falls. good place to go camping with swimming. I do recommend calling the big piney ranger service ahead to check to make sure its open since there is a water bridge crossing that they sometimes close.

Beautiful waterfall. Road flooded over to get to campground area. We found a place to pull off road h scamper down a steep embankment to the river. Fortunately there was shale rock along the bank that we could walk to the waterfall.

We camped here and walked to the falls the next morning. We were close enough to hear the water flowing all night. It was very clean and a nice place to go.

Super easy & short trail. You can throw a rock (but don't cause that's not safe!) to the waterfall from where you park. The creek was low, but there was still a waterfall & the color of the water was beautiful.

This is hardly a trail. The falls are pretty. I decided to take a swim in them because I had just hiked the Pack Rat Falls Trail. It was definitely a good way to cool off.

Absolutely loved this spot to cool off. Easy walk across the street. Beautiful. Highly recommend. Waterfall wasn’t much because it hasn’t rained in awhile but it was perfect for cooling off.

Not really a trail but a beautiful swimming hole...it was a little crowded, but that’s to be expected...

You can see this one from your car! Take a few minutes to get out and explore and play in the water. Be sure to do the .5 mile hike to Pam’s Grotto while you’re here. It’s right off the highway on the opposite side of the road.

Camp ground is now open. Not even a hike! Anyone can see this beauty!

Campground road closed to vehicles due to flooding. No problem just waded across the creek and just down the road to the small and charming campground. to the left across the road from the vault toilets was the most beautiful, amazing and fast moving waterfall. Perfect!

Best hike ever! Get out of your car and you're there! (Haha) Lovely area, quiet, beautiful views. Great place to cool off after a day of hiking, make this your last stop so you can swim. Rocks are slippery so be careful. We were the only ones in the spot the day we went, we absolutely loved it. We were able to walk quite a ways up the creek safely. Gorgeous spot.
