Drawdy Falls is a picturesque waterfall located near Peytona in Boone County. The waterfall is located on Drawdy Creek, which is a tributary of the Big Coal River.

The lower fall is slightly taller than the upper fall, and when combined make for a wonderful shot, so don’t be afraid to get your feet wet!

Drawdy Falls is on the other side of Route 3 from the Drawdy Falls Roadside Park. This is a nice shelter and picnic area, and makes for a great place to sit and take a quick bite of food as a break from waterfall expeditions.

Just a few miles before the roadside park, the roadway intersects with Route 3, just continue right. Be careful crossing Route 3 once at the park, as this is a big trucker road.
