Lake Comus Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 42.63731   Longitude: -88.65008
A culvert with a spillway effluent... not real exciting but if in the area, stop and take a quick look... or maybe catch a couple fish... lots of fisherman frequent this spot!  Be careful on the rocks... it's difficult to get down to water level.  The lake is formed from the backup of Turtle Creek.  This spillway is 4 blocks west of downtown Delavan on W. Walworth Avenue, then 3 blocks north on N. Terrace Street.  There is an off-street parking area one block on north on the right side of the street.

Lake Geneva Rapids:  View Video
Latitude: 42.59065   Longitude: -88.43347
Not an exciting rapids, but if visiting Lake Geneva the rapids is in a very nice park.  The rapids is one block south of Main Street and just east of the Center Street bridge over the outfall from Geneva Lake which eventually flows into the White River.  Finding parking is difficult in Lake Geneva; public parking is available 5 blocks north of Main Street and 2 blocks east of Center Street which will give you about a 6 block walk to the rapids.

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.
