If you have not been here yet, you should know that while it is a great place, families with younger kids may want to use caution. When you park, it is a very short walk to the river bank, but you do have to walk...More

Just a few paddles and you leave civilization behind. Float down the East Fork of the Stones River for a fun day.

I brought my sons to this attraction. Our favorite thing to do was skip stones in the river. The water flowing off the dam was really peaceful. There are many areas to picnic and some great, short hiking trails in the area.

Good natural area to visit and explore. People often fish near the dam. I wouldn't recommend swimming.

I love going here to view the water on a pretty day. It is only 10 mins from our house. You can see families walking around and exploring. It is not a big place but beautiful none the less.
