Cataract Falls is a waterfall located in northern Owen County in the west central part of the U.S. state of Indiana. The largest waterfall by volume in the state, it is part of the Lieber State Recreation Area.

Cataract Falls consists of two sets of waterfalls on Mill Creek separated by about 1 mile (1.6 km). Both falls consist of a series of drops. The total height of the Upper Falls is approximately 45 feet (14 m), while that of the Lower Falls is about 30 feet (9.1 m).
Immediately downstream of the Lower Falls, Mill Creek enters the southern end of Cagles Mill Lake, near the towns of Cunot and Cataract. The falls are just off State Road 42 and close to State Road 243.

  • Returning from touring the Covered Bridges of Parke County, IN we stopped at Cataract Falls. Being morning the sun's position tended to wash out photos from the viewing sites. However crossing over...

  • I first went to Cataract Falls in September 2019 and, while it was nice, it was a bit melancholy feeling and I can't point out exactly why. Probably because I was alone and nobody else was there...

  • So happy I stumbled across this place. I've lived near by for years. It's so beautiful! I wish I had more time to explore more. There's different pathways to get to see the waterfalls. I didn't like the pathway I chose. The pathway is narrow in some areas, confusing at times, and too steep to climb back up in certain spots. I did, but it was a struggle for me. I felt like I was going to fall backwards trying to climb back up. I'm overweight so maybe that's why. Idk.
  • Very pretty Beautiful countryside
