Swimming Holes:

Anthony Creek


The main swimming spot on Anthony Creek is at the Blue Bend day use area that has campground, picnic, and group shelter facilities.  There is also access to hiking at Big Draft Wilderness.  The swimming hole is a very large pool right beside the Anthony Creek Rd.  It is heavily used on hot summer weekends.  There are also other options for swimming on Anthony Creek if you hike downstream on Anthony Creek Trail.  


Anthony Creek is located in eastern West Virginia, north of Lewisburg. (Google Maps directions below)
