Dive and Swim

This is a great place to cool off in the San Marcos River and you can get in some showing off time while you're at it. Just off Thompson Island, there's an ideal tree for a rope swing. It's got a great plank ladder so you can climb it as high as you like. The rope is strong and long enough to give you a good whip as you swing out over the river.
