Float Tubing Kids Swimming in Pine Creek

Swimming in Pine Creek

The closest and best place to swim is at the Rattlesnake Rock Access Area. From either cabin, turn right onto Rt 414. Rattlesnake Rock is about a mile from the Waldhaus and about a half mile from the Ponderosa. At the access area, turn left and drive down to the parking area close to the stream. There is no life guard, so swim at your own risk. We recommend swimming just below Rattlesnake Rock at the boat access area, rather than in the large hole in front of Rattlesnake Rock. The large hole can be dangerous, especially when the water is high. Please do not to swim alone or in high water conditions.
