Little Niagara Swimming Area Closed
Due to low water flow in Travertine Creek, the Little Niagara and Panther Falls swimming areas are closed until further notice. The Little Niagara and Panther Falls picnic areas remain open.
Opportunities for swimming can be found throughout the park at the Lake of the Arbuckles, Veterans Lake, and in Travertine and Rock Creeks.
The cool waters found here are famous as a natural and fun way to cool down in the summer heat.
