nice geological formations...not worth driving a long distance to see. Would be pleasant on a hot day to swim.

“A great place to spend a Hot summer day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

You must come early to get a good parking spot, but if you are planning to spend a day splashing in the pools and picnicking, this is the place to do it...

“nothing there but a river. Extremely disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Teenagers were partying and we felt uncomfortable there so we left. A ruined trip. We were expecting a neat place to picnic and explore. Not there! I was scared to stay.

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

This place is beautiful! Large trees, trails everywhere. I am so glad I was able to see this place. We had a great day, people were swimming in the lower part. I have never seen so many large trees!!
