Incredibly beautiful place, nice cool water. Many swimming holes to choose from. I would recommend getting there early in the day to avoid crowds--we went in July and it was busy by 11 (at 9am it was not crowded). My husband, son, and daughter loved jumping off of the log staircase into the deep part of the pool, and we all took a dip to cool off.
