What To Do
Hiking – There is a trail next to the campground that leads to the top of the canyon and offers some scenic views, especially for sunrise & sunset.
Slide Rock State Park – This natural water park is just up the road and is a great place to cool off in the summer. Be prepared for crowds though in the summer.
Grasshopper Point – This is a great alternative to Slide Rock for playing in the water. Located about 10 miles south of Pine Flat, it is a more relaxing swimming spot with hiking trails along the creek.
