Opportunities for swimming can be found throughout the park at the Lake of the Arbuckles, Veterans Lake, and in Travertine and Rock Creeks.
Travertine Creek can be very crowded in summer, particularly on weekends and holidays. Once designated parking spaces are full, cars will not be allowed into the Travertine Creek area until people start to leave and parking spaces are available again. The area is still accessible by trail, but walking distances can easily exceed a mile and a half from the nearest available parking on popular days. Parking rarely fills on weekdays, unless they are holidays, or anytime during late fall, winter, and early spring.
