Dunn's Falls Water Park
Nestled in the pristine hills along the Chunky River, in South Lauderdale County Mississippi lies Dunn's Fall's Water park. Here, along a shallow stretch of the Chunky River, the bluffs of the eastern bank rise to tree-top level. From this lofty perch, the flowing water of a stream provides a natural source of power , for the working water wheel before making it's sixty to seventy foot decent to the river below.
This park features a 65-foot water fall created in the mid 1850's by Irish immigrant John Dunn. The waterfall not only provides pristine beauty, but also provides the force needed to turn the iconic water wheel. The curious and nature lovers alike are drawn to this peaceful, idyllic spot.
The park also features an 1857 grist mill, moved from Cave Springs, Georgia in 1987 and reconstructed on the site of Dunn's original mill, as well as the rustic homestead fascinate history buffs. Stocked with catfish and complete with ducks, the mill pond and picnic area are a great spot for a family outing. The crystal clear river offers fishing, canoeing and swimming. A short walk removes visitors from even a nod to civilization, as nature trails wind through the woods which are home to wild turkey, deer, squirrels and other wildlife, carrying hikers - eventually - back to the pond. Primitive camping sites are available for those who like to rough it.
