Bedrock Swimming- Fall Creek Recreation Area

Bedrock
5-Stars Raiting




A peaceful section of the Fall Creek is located far downstream under the bridge near the popular Bedrock Campground. A great swimming hotspot features formation rocks, underwater ledges, rocky and sandy beaches. The water is shallow toward the beaches and deeper under the bridge in the narrow channel.

Small rapids upstream are perfect for tubing.

A short steep hike is required to reach a swimming hole. The trail is located upstream of the bridge. Watch out for poison oak.

There are other excellent swimming spots along the Fall Creek Lake and Fall Creek:
