Hompegg Falls
Location Columbia County, Washington
Watercourse Unnamed

Hompegg Falls is a waterfall that flows down a creek that empties in the north fork of Touchet River, located in the U.S. state of Washington. The waterfall is in the heart of the Umatilla National Forest, just 2 miles south of the Huckleberry Mountain Reservoir Dam and 8 miles north of Ski Bluewood. The name of the waterfall is from the initials of seven individuals who discovered the waterfall while kicking the forest in the 1930s.

Access to Hompegg Falls is 15 miles south of the city of Dayton at a point where an unnamed creek flows into the North Folk Touchet River. Frequent floods may have obliterated most of the cliffs where Hompegg Falls is located.
