Friends of Hard Labor Creek are having a “Save the Water Wheel Golf Tournament”, and we would like your support. The wooden wheel, mounted in the original 1880s foundation, usually turns gently in front of the waterfall rushing under the CCC-built pedestrian bridge over Rocky Creek. Together, they create one of the most peaceful and picturesque views in the region.
The water wheel stopped turning in 2012. The bearings were shot and it wobbled badly, and the economic conditions have dried up state park funds to repair it. $60 - $240 $5 parking.
