This WAS an official swimming area, but apparently the county shut down all swimming because they couldn’t measure the depth and have it stay accurate since water levels rise and fall. We were told though that if you take the trail down by the tennis courts you can still swim there as that has nothing to do with the park. The trail is through tall grass, but very short. You can also walk down the rocks by the bridge if you’d rather.
The unique aspect of this location is the abandoned building at the end of the stream, that you can see from the swimming area near the bridge. The swimming area has lots of nice rock shelves, and is pretty even without the romanticism of the ruin. It doesn’t look very deep, but you could maybe wade upstream and find something deeper. Some of the rocks have some pretty gross algae on them, so watch where you step. We aren’t sure how much the park cares where you are, but you can walk upstream from here and see where they used to allow swimming.
You can park in the parking area immediately to your left after entering the park, and you don’t have to pay a fee. Park closes at 9pm. There is also camping/rv park here and a small concession stand.
