Cowley Lake Waterfall - Dexter, Kansas
Although the dramatic waterfall at Cowley County State Fishing Lake is less than 1/4 mile off US Highway 166, it is virtually unknown and visited by only a few people each day. When I visited this waterfall in 2008, there weren't even signs at the park pointing out that Cowley Lake Waterfall exists.
The 20' falls is quite beautiful, but hard to access, and (because of short sight lines) hard to photograph. Cowley Lake Waterfall is just off the small parking lot at the west end of the 84 acre Cowley County State Fishinf Lake. The climb down to the bottom of the waterfalls isn't very safe and you may wish to drive down the dirt road just west of the park. It runs just one or two hundred feet west of the river leading away from the falls.
