Campbell Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Massachusetts. It is a beautiful waterfall located on the border of Connecticut in New Marlborough, Massachusetts. The waterfall has a total height of 50 feet and it can be found along the Whiting River. The Whiting River flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, Campbell Falls is a great spot to visit year-round.
The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of a plunge and cascade. Both the drops that make up the waterfall are impressive. There is also a large pool at the base of the falls which is a popular swimming hole in the summer.
Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Campbell Falls State Park Reserve which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park on the side of the road and then walk down the hill to the falls. The waterfall trail is family-friendly and dogs are welcome to explore the waterfall too.
