Summertime, Sweet Summertime -
Where Can I Swim?

Children, watermelon, fishing and swimming – What could be better than summer at Spring Creek?

Did you know that the temperature of Spring Creek ranges from 50-75 degrees with the warmest temperatures in July and August? Many springs along its banks keep the water brisk and the creek flowing.

There are a few commercial places where you can picnic, swim and camp for a fee. Two long-established and popular picnic areas are Cave Springs and Littlefield’s near Peggs.

At Peggs on highway 82, turn north on old Peggs Cemetery Road (N440) and go 1.7 miles. The road crosses Spring Creek at a low-water bridge. Turn in at the signs on either side of the creek, each place owned by different family members. Fees vary from $2 per person to $10 per car for day picnicking/swimming or $10 for overnight camping (5pm-11am). These prices are approximate.

Another popular spot is Smokey Valley Campground downstream. Turn west on Ear Bob Road and travel about 2 miles to the road on the right that crosses Spring Creek. Cross the creek and turn left at the T. The campground entrance will be about a half a mile on the left.
