Overall rating: 

Great swimming hole!

As mentioned below, it is on private property so it can only be accessed when camps are not in session (you can check their website for the schedule). Short hike to the waterfall with multiple creek crossings so bring water shoes in the summer! Great after some good rainfall.

On Private Property

This waterfall is located on private property. They do allow access, but you need to sign in at the parking lot. Access is restricted when summer and winter camps are going on, so check with them before you visit. The hike is short and sweet, and the falls have a nice 40+ foot drop.
