Haven Falls is located in a small roadside park in the town of Lac la Belle. A nice pavilion with restrooms and plenty of picnic benches surround the waterfall and creek, with occasional glimpses of the lake across the road from between the town's houses. The falls are a steep fanning drop over rough conglomerate rock with several smaller upstream drops on the cluttered little creek. Depending on the time of the year, this waterfall turns from a foaming curtain to the barest trickle of water down the rock.

Directions

From US-41 head south on Lac la Belle Road for 4.3 miles, bearing right at the fork for an additional .5 miles. Haven Falls Park will be on the right side of the road. Park here and follow the creek to the falls, which should be visible from the road. To see the upstream drops head up the crumbling path on the right side of the falls.
