  • The hiking trails were great, the park was clean and there were a lot of very scenic areas to see the surrounding mountains.

  • Great place to visit on a hot day, especially after a good rainfall! Either slide down the natural rock water slide on a tube or sit on the little beach and enjoy!

  • Very nice natural location located off of Hwy 11 Cherokee Foothills scenic Hwy. Me and my wife visited this place over this past weekend. The site was really beautiful and truly a must see if in this area. Noticed some people who don't appreciate this gem of natural beauty by leaving their trash behind. Please go check out this gem of our states natural beauty and don't go there and trash this beautiful spot!!! Going back to this area later this year. Enjoy this gem of a place and don't litter.
  • Great place to spend the day playing in the river and sliding down the rock. Lots of fun for the hole family. It a little bit of a challenge getting down to the rock however they put steps in going part way down the hill. There is picnic area but it's at the top near the parking area. There are portable restrooms in the parking area but none down at the river so you have to walk back up the hill to use the bathroom. With all that side it still a great place to slide down the rock and play in the river. I've been coming here since I was little and it only gets better each time I come.
