  1. Growing up I would hear story's about this swimming hole. My Grandma grew up here and and my great Cousin still lives there and before the area was flooded destroying most of the land, they would say that this was the deepest part of the eel river. My Great Uncle would tell us story about how they would send divers out there to find the bottom only for them to come back and say that they couldn't reach the bottom that it was to deep. I remember many of our visits to my Uncles was spent down at the river swimming. It was nice to see some great pics of the area it has been a while since I have been back there. Don't let the pictures deceive you from water to top of cliff it is close to 15 or more story's at the highest part per my Great Uncle.
