The lakes and rivers around the cabin are fueled by snow melt and they remain pretty cold all year round. However, that shouldn't stop you from jumping in on a hot day and discovering how much fun the cold rush can be!
A few of our swimming holes are below. Just use Google Maps for directions to any of the them.
North Fork Stanislaus River - 15 min
Take Google Maps to Sourgrass Day Use area. This beautiful section of river is just below Big Trees Village, down Boards Crossing Road. Go downstream from the bridge for a great jumping spot off the rocks. Go upstream from the bridge for a great spot to ride the rapids for a few hundred feet.
Lake Alpine - 27 min
Swimming to the small islands on Lake Alpine is cold, but a lot of fun.
Utica Reservoir - 42 min
A small and very picturesque reservoir. It's rocky, wooded shoreline and many islands make it very fun to paddle and explore. Find a good rock with deep water next to it and voila - instant fun!
