Seriously, The water is flowing way to fast. then soon the waterfalls. Now people do dip their feet in the water, but even that is not advisable.

I would not risk swimming in the river. Looked like swift waters when we were there, I did see kayakers below the falls some distance away.

When we visited the river had a very swift current and I wouldn't advise swimming, especially with children. Maybe down river from the falls there is a calm area. I have no idea.

There is no swimming in the river near the parking lot and gift shop. When you first arrive you can't tell, but it is just a few hundred yards from the top of the falls. The water is typically not running very fast so it appears safe, but it isn't.

there is a small beach down from the falls that you can swim. it is not the greatest. the park has a very nice pool that might be better for kids.
