ONEIDA, Tenn. (WVLT) - Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area offers an opportunity to have fun and earn a little extra money this coming summer by becoming a lifeguard.

Lifeguard certification courses are currently available through the YMCA of Knoxville, Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department, YMCA of Cookeville, and Williamsburg Kentucky Aquatics.

The Bandy Creek pool is in the heart of the Big South Fork and is 75' by 35'. Depth ranges from 3-5 feet, and no diving is permitted. There is also a wading pool.
