  • Love it here. Such a lovely swimming hole in the summer, and it is definitely off the beaten path so it tends to be nice and quiet, even on the hottest of summer days.  more »
  • If you're driving down to Victoria I recommend stopping in here for 20-30min to walk around and look at all the street art and murals on the wall. It's what has saved the town and kept local business....  more »
  • Great place to go, be aware that many of the roads past the initial small parking area will require a car with decent road clearance or and SUV/truck, my family and I got tossed around pretty good in the big ole suburban, lot of quiet private areas with very low current or still water to eat along the river and swim, no cell service in most of the area so be prepared to let someone know your going there or have a backup communication in place (frs, CB, ham, gmrs) definitely gonna make a regular trip up here. Even though it was busy and tons of cars around, there are many places to seclude yourself or get a little area of your own if you want. No amenities at all though so come prepared.
  • It is well worth the drive very beautiful in the water is so clear and clean and a nice area really nice area it is a must-see check it out for sure
