We were staying nearby and stopped to view the falls. They were pretty but not notable in any respect. If you’re nearby and want to have a look, great, but ai would not drive out of my way.

This falls is right on M26 in the middle of town, right at the bridge that crosses the river. Easy access, easy parking. We went last week and it was very nice.

You don't have to travel far to get to this waterfall - it's right on the road, so stop by and enjoy, especially in the spring and during other high-water times. There are also historic signs about Eagle River and also a historic bridge at...More

Easy to view falls from a bridge, you can park right there and view from above. There were people below wading in the water and climbing on the falls. The wooden bridge opposite the falls is interesting too.

Can easily view this falls form the old historic bridge. Nice falls, but not spectacular. Falls are so much smaller on the South shore of Lake Superior than the North shore.

My wife and I stopped off in Eagle River for a much needed rest from a long hike. We visited the falls and the small museum, while we were there. The falls are very pretty, and it was nice to just relax to the sound...More

Both of the falls are worth stopping for. Jacob’s Falls we’re located near a quaint little bakery called the Jampot. Worth visiting. The Eagle River Falls were located pretty much right out our door at the lighthouse we rented in Eagle River. Beautiful!

A couple of different viewing areas. The main one with the parking area. There is a lower bridge allowing the opportunity to get a different view of the river. Come during the spring melt and see the power of the water flow.
