We do know of one other waterfall in Northern New York that carries the name of a creek that it isn't on.  In that case, Whiskey Brook Falls in Hamilton County is on Hatchery Brook.  Whiskey Brook enters Hatchery just downstream of the waterfall.

This waterfall is on an unnamed, spring-fed creek and the falls is situated at the point where the creek enters Fish Creek.  Since the creek it is on isn't named, this is why we have said in the data side-bar that it is on Fish Creek.

As for the name of the falls, there is no Willow Creek.  Neighbors in the area have assigned this name because there are a number of Willow Trees close to the falls and the creek.  Although you can get a distant view of the falls from the roadside, it is in the back of property by the family home.  Please respect that.

One of our pictures shows an area to the left of the waterfall.  Just upstream of the falls, the creek goes under a highway.  We were told that a number of years ago some work was done on the highway which disrupted the flow of the stream.  It used to split just above the falls and there were two drops.  That point of entry is higher than it was and very little water gets into that channel.  Today, that is barely a trickle.

Fish Creek flows into Sandy Creek about a mile-and-a-half from this point.  The Sandy empties into Lake Ontario.
