Larkwood Falls - Trip Details

As a large family, we find renting a home for a night much more relaxing than a hotel, and it's so nice to have a place nearby to crash after a long day of hiking! You can find nice, affordable homes on Vrbo.

Larkwood Falls is situated in a subdivision off of Lake Catoma.  While relatively easy to get to near Culman, there isn't much parking.  

The biggest thing to consider when visiting is insuring that the lake is high enough to have water coming over the spillway and into Eightmile Creek.  So, you may want to hold off until a big rain for the best experience.
