A Russell County Natural Feature. The Creelsboro Natural Arch (also known as "The Rockhouse") is a historic archway to the Cumberland River and an Indian burial ground on the top. A very rugged trail takes you down to the huge arch and guests can walk all the way to the Cumberland River (when the water levels are low). Not handicapped accessible.

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 was used by Native Americans and early settlers as a shelter against the elements.
