  1. Wondering if the beach area is meant for swimmers? Is the creek clean enough for swimming?

    • The beach area is a great place for swimming, however, there is not a regular testing program to measure water quality. So, you should swim at your own risk. The Hominy Creek watershed drains 80 square miles of the county which includes drainage from industry and agriculture.
