Mishicot Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 44.23836   Longitude: -87.64141
This beautiful spillway is in downtown Mishicot on the East Twin River and was a little hard to find.  In downtown Mishicot go SE on Main Street, cross the river and take the first right on Park Lane, go 3 blocks and take the first right on S. Rockway Street, go to its end (about 3 blocks) and park on the street or in an area west of the street.  The Ice Age National Scenic Trail goes to the right from that point.  Walk down the trail about 200 feet and the spillway will be on your left.

Oslo Rapids:  View Video
Latitude: 44.09925   Longitude: -87.82274
This is not a very exciting rapids, which is 1.35 downstream from Cato Falls, but there is a picnic table at the parking area for this rapids... so maybe a good time to stop for a quick rest.  The rapids can be viewed from roads either side of the Manitowoc River and there are more rapids just downstream.  The rapids is just upstream from the bridge over the Manitowoc River 1.2 miles north of Madsen.

Rockville Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 43.92027   Longitude: -87.99832

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
