Rock Point Swimming Hole is a spot along the Rogue River in the town of Gold Hill that sees some use from locals. With a small wading area that is often fished, there are also rock jumps as high as 15' along the river bank, and a rope swing tied to the trestles beneath the Rock Point Bridge.

With the Rogue River draining the nearby Cascade mountains, the river tends to be pretty cold, but is a very popular floating destination during hot summer days. While the dark water makes it hard to see beneath the surface and inspect for rocks or debris, visitors should check before jumping in, and be cautious of the currents further from the edge.

Parking is available in a wide gravel pullout on the bridge's northeast side. From there, it's easy to follow a paved multi-use path to the use trails leading over the boulders and down to the water's edge.

There are no amenities of any kind at the swimming hole. Unfortunately there tends to be litter and grafitti in the area, so consider bringing a small trash bag and packing out some of the trash left around the rocks.
