Pull into the park and you can unload in the loop. There are nice clean restrooms, an outdoor shower and a gift shop with supplies if you forgot something.

Fees:

$10 per person if you’re bringing own board. There are also canoes and kayaks available for rent.

Rules:

Each person must be attached to a vessel (no shared paddle boards).
Each person must go inside and sign a waiver and get a bracelet.
Paddleboards are not allowed to go down the run, only paddle to the swimming beach and up to the spring.

What to bring:

Board & Paddle
Life Jacket
Hat
Sunscreen
Whistle
Cooler with snacks and drinks (NO alcohol)
Water
Hat
Hammock

Time:

Paddle upstream only takes ~1 hour, and is much quicker on the way back.

Level:

Intermediate, due to it being narrow and against stream.

Distance:

Paddling upstream towards Rock Springs is about 1.2 miles and a great paddle through mostly shady and very narrow waterways. Lots of twists and turns.

Things to see:

There is a rope swing and tree stump diving board to jump into the water. The swimming hole is excellent for relaxing and hanging out or even setting up a hammock. The water going up is crystal clear and beautiful.

Best time:

Weekdays. We recommend getting on the water by 10am on weekdays. The earlier the better on a weekend.
