So picturesque, you forget that you are getting exercise. Park rangers are super friendly to well-behaved dogs and have pronounced that our dog, Bluegrass, is the park's dog. Bluegrass loves the terrain and interaxting with park visitors. Highly recommend.

Someplace we love to come and just enjoy looking at the water and being one with nature! There are places to fish, sit and talk, picnic, party or whatever you wish. The ducks make it extremely entertaining.

I enjoy my trips to Sweetwater Creek. My great grands really enjoy feeding the ducks. It is a very safe and clean place to take the family.

We love Sweetwater Creek for family hiking. You can choose from long hikes (5+ miles) to shorter ones (2 miles). The terrain can be tough, so look at a map, but the creek itself is cool, and we love the old mill (where they filmed...More

I've visited this park every weekend this month. We love the trails! If you want a scenic low intensity hike- I recommend the red trail. If you are a seasoned hiker- try your hand at the white trail. I loved it so much that I...More

In the creek you can swim, but you have to hike to it. The water isn't that clean looking. I wouldn't recommend it.
