SMOKY MOUNTAINS SWIMMING INFO 

     Swimming is a favorite way to escape the summer heat. However, Park waters are dangerous and caution is a must. Swim at your own risk, and watch children carefully. The Park does not recommend any specific swimming area for this reason. Since Park waters rarely rise above 65F degrees, hypothermia is a year-round risk.

Practicing Water Safety is a must while visiting the Park. Serious water-related injuries occur every year in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Drowning is the second leading cause of death after driving accidents. These injuries can easily be avoided. Please remember:

 
bulletThere are no life-guarded swimming areas in the Park. Swimming is not recommended.
bulletNever dive into Park rivers or streams. Hidden rocks and other obstructions exist even in seemingly deep pools.
bulletNever try to climb to the top of a waterfall. The rocks are coated with slippery algae, and several fatal falls have occurred.
bulletHikers must use good judgment when deciding to cross large or rain-swollen streams. It is better to turn back or wait for flooding streams to recede than risk your life in cold, swift waters.

PARK REGULATIONS PERTAINING TO

bulletThe possession of glass containers is prohibited in all areas of the Park where people gather to swim, wade or tube.
