National Creek Falls is yet another among the long list of highly photogenic waterfalls in Oregon. The falls occur where the spring-fed creek diverges around a basalt outcropping and plunges about 40 feet over a jagged ledge in two scenic channels. The grotto below the falls is exceptionally scenic and thriving in greenery, with a small meadow of mosses growing on a flat area just downstream of the falls where Falls Creek merges with National Creek. The falls flow very consistently and are good to visit any time of the year.

NATIONAL CREEK FALLS is the Official name of this waterfall.
The falls were named after the creek, but the origin of the name of the stream is not known (We suspect it may originate from the fact that the stream heads within Crater Lake National Park).
