Brazos River 

Swimming in the Brazos River

If you want to get out into nature for a swimming session, you will not have to look further than the Brazos River running along the southern side of the Corkin’s Lodge grounds.  Guests can hike along the river’s edge and find numerous deep pools of slow-moving water in the river just perfect for swimming with the whole family.  Enjoy being surrounded by peaceful pine forests and mountains during a dip in the Brazos River.  Along each of the deeper pools for swimming in the river, you will also find large, flat rocks perfect for spreading out a towel and soaking in some sunshine and drying off after a swim.  For the more adventurous, the big river rocks are perfect for jumps into the water.
