Welcome to the weekend! Swimming is the perfect way to stay refreshed during the summer’s hottest days. Public lands offer some amazing swimming spots. Just make sure you are prepared to swim safely! Today’s water safety tip: Swimming in natural waters is different than swimming in a pool. Never swim alone, and wear a life jacket to stay safely afloat.
Away from the busier North Umpqua Corridor, Cavitt Creek Falls Recreation Site in Oregon is a favorite of locals looking for a cool respite in the Roseburg area. Surrounded by a forest of fir, maple and cedar trees, the swimming hole at the base of a 6-foot-tall waterfall on Cavitt Creek is a welcome discovery on a hot day.
