JACKSON COUNTY, Tenn. (AMANDA GREER)  -- It’s been almost a month since two people drowned and forty more were stranded by flash flooding at Cummins Falls State Park.

The tragedy isn’t likely to hurt attendance at the park given the spot’s long history as a favorite Tennessee swimin’ hole.

Cummins Falls is located northwest of Cookeville in Jackson County. It’s been a popular summer destination for years, well before it became a state park in 2012.
