Stoney Creek Swim Area is located just off Highway 3, opposite the road from Trinity Lake. There is a $10 fee to use the area.

The swimming hole here can be quite popular. There is a nice small beach adjacent to Stoney Creek that makes for an excellent place to relax or sunbathe. The water here is nice and calm, blocked downstream by a culvert weir dam.

A paved walkway from the parking area leads down to the swimming hole. There are two picnic sites with brick patios, tables and grills. Changerooms/restrooms and drinking water are available near the parking lot.

Although dates differ year to year, Stoney Creek Swim Area is usually open mid-May through mid-September.
