Local Area

Creelsboro Natural Bridge

Below the mass of concrete which is Wolf Creek Dam is the area of the Rockhouse and Swan Pond Bottom.  Here you will find a 300 million year old natural bridge arch of solid limestone carved by nature and affectionately referred to as Rockhouse Bottom.  This 60 ft. high and over 120 ft. wide rock formation is located next to the cool rushing waters of the Cumberland River and is said to have been used by Native Americans and early settlers as a shelter against the elements. This is a Russell County treasure you don't want to miss. Book your stay with us and visit the Creelsboro Natural Bridge.
