Park
“Not only do you slide down the falls but then it floats you on down to another small falls and then sandy beach area. Bring tubes as it makes the experience so much better. We spent about 3 hours here. Dont forget sunscreen, the water is refreshing but the sun is hot. There is a porta john ( which was clean) but no real place to change clothes. We packed a lunch also. Highly recommended for those who like adventure. I am not one to swim in lakes or non chlorinated water but i did go in this water. It's not to deep but rocky on the bottom so make sure you wear old tennis shoes or water shoes. It can be difficult to get out due to slippery rocks on the edge.”
