Just a nice meandering river, this place provided a half day's worth of old fashioned charm, allowing us to sit and skip stones, and watch some dogs splash and play in the shallow waters as we did. Great fun in Boonville!

Good swimming hole under Hendy Woods bridge, on Philo, greenwood road, but with drought this year, very low water. Wet years, great place.
