  • Need a little refreshing/cleansing swim? Well look no further. This park is not only beautifully kept but a pristine example of a cold spring head at work. The water is cold and clear and the swimming hole has been modernized to keep the area easy to maintain. Nature trails offer an opportunity to warm up and it's also fun to walk the steam that flows from the main swimming area. The park also includes picnic tables, grills and a bath house.
  • So beautiful! (And cold) breathtaking scenery, lovely shaded trails, swimming in beautiful clear spring fed water, (did I mention it's COLD! ?) NO better way to beat the heat! If you're near this gem while traveling, make the stop, it's totally worth it.
  • This place is beautiful! Nice outdoor nature trails, crystal clear cold water, pic nic tables, pavillions, grills, and many more. Very nice ranger was very nice and playful with kids. Bathrooms are available and a shower outside to rince off. It has a big area to swim and nice creek with flowing water..
  • This state park is beautiful. The water is crystal clear. Go on a hot day though. The water here is cold.
  • If you are around, DEFINITELY stop!! The water was beautiful and cold. Breathtaking view while we were there later in the day.
