Impressive falls estimated 40 feet tall and 100 feet wide,beach, 15 min walk in

The walk in is very easy. It looks like an old service road.An impressive falls at an estimated 40 feet tall and 100 feet wide. Lampson is a shallow and broad-faced falls, which can have huge amounts of water flowing over it during peak melt season in the spring. During the summer it calms and becomes a much quieter setting. At the bottom of the falls a small beach has formed allowing for swimming and picnicking. The 15 minute walk into this area is well worth it.

The access for Lampson Falls is the Grasse River Recreation Area on Route 27 in Clare, just north of Degrasse. Look for the brown and yellow DEC sign at a gated road. Park on the road side and head down the dirt road.

This was the first hike for my boys, 10 and 5, and they absurdly loved it. They particularly liked swimming at the Falls. But also exploring around. They can't wait to go back and try other hikes.

It's a short ride to the falls but beautiful every time. There is some interesting terrain around the area however you might want to wear bug spray.

Beautiful little hike. It was nature at its finest and well worth the visit. There was enough climbing around the falls to give it a little extra workout but overall an easy trail.
