There were two dams and two swimming holes at horse creek. The lower (larger) one is still intact. It needs to be cleaned out,which they USED to do every year. The upper swimming hole dam was removed in the early 90's due to people climbing the side of the mountain and jumping off (like paint creek). It was located behind and to the left of the upper pavilion. The dam was two simple gates like saloon doors that they opened and then ran a backhoe thru to clean out and then closed them. It wasn't very deep or big. The gates were in disrepair as well. The lower hole used to have a white sandy beach on the far side against the mountain. The place used to be very nice.
I wondered if the upper dam might be the one the op was referring to. It hasn't been there for quite some time. As for the sandy beach on the far side of the lower swimming area, it's so grown up you can't even get over there. Also, there was a bridge across the creek above that swimming area that is gone. The pathway on the other side of the creek is impassable. I've had some really good times at Horse Creek and I'd volunteer to help too, but I have an eye problem....that is, I can't see it happening. Lol!

The govt isn't going to touch it. It'll take another petition with the threat of going public with the info to get it done. A private party with the equipment only needs a permit to do it themselves. We did Kennedy cabin road a few years ago. At least 15 people with chainsaws and two privately owned backhoes did the job. With a permit of course.

We went to horsecreek a couple weeks ago. U can wall the trails still baut tey are nothing like they were before the tornados destroyed that place. The coveres bridge at the swimming hole is still there which surprised me considering everything around it got demolished when the tornado came thru. But with time and people willing effort the place could be rebuilt and look better than ever.
