Gorgeous Owen Sound Waterfalls You Must See

Exploring Owen Sound is an excellent way to enjoy the great outdoors. The vast forests, landscapes and the waterfalls make the area a must-see. 

There's a reason Owen Sound is known as the “Scenic City.” See for yourself as you and your family experience these local waterfalls.

Inglis Falls

Visit one of the most popular waterfalls in the area, Inglis Falls, during your trip to Owen Sound. This impressive waterfall is 18 metres high and has a deep gorge at the bottom. Inglis Falls sits in the heart of the Inglis Falls Conservation Area. You can hike down the Inglis Falls Trail to get to the falls. 

A stone wall surrounds the top of the waterfall to protect visitors from falling. If you or your kids have trouble seeing over the wall, there's also a viewing platform you can stand on to safely see the beautiful water.

You'll see various plant and bird species while looking at the waterfall and exploring the conservation area. You can also see the remains of a historical sawmill that has been in the area since the late 1800s.

Inglis Falls is 10 minutes away from Owen Sound KOA Journey.

Jones Falls

Stop by Jones Falls on the outskirts of Owen Sound when you want to see an unforgettable waterfall. The waterfall is a commendable 12 metres high. You can see the waterfall from the footbridge that crosses the Pottawatomi River. The water flows into the river, then travels into Owen Sound Bay.

Jones Falls is in the Pottawatomi Conservation Area, making it easy to turn your trip to the waterfall into a short hike. Various trails in the conservation area lead to the waterfall and are great for the whole family. The water flow of the falls is much lower during late summer, but it is still a beautiful location to add to your trip itinerary if you visit during that time of year.

Jones Falls is about 15 minutes from our KOA Campground.

Weavers Creek Falls

Enjoy fresh air and sunshine at Weavers Creek Falls in Owen Sound. The waterfall is one of the smallest in the area, standing only 2 to 3 metres high. You can get to the waterfall by walking on the boardwalk behind the pool at Harrison Park. The waterfall is on private property, so ensure you stay within the boundaries by only staying on the path and following the directions on the signs.

Weavers Creek Falls is about 10 minutes from the campground.

Indian Falls

If you want to see another big waterfall, add Indian Falls to your itinerary. The 15-metre-high waterfall is one of many that are part of the Niagara Escarpment. It was created similarly to Niagara Falls, by ancient seas and the erosion of Manitoulin dolomite and soft Queenstone shale.

To get to the falls, you can hike the one-metre out-and-back trail. Be sure to walk slowly and carefully since the trail is moderately challenging, having rocky terrain and steep areas. Hiking the short path is worth it once you get to the waterfall.

Indian Falls is on the outskirts of Owen Sound and about 20 minutes from Owen Sound KOA Journey.
