You cannot swim inside the park, BUT you can swim in river Korana which is formed directly from Plitvice Lakes. Most of tourists do not know this.
If anyone is interested in pictures of river Korana, I’ll edit this post when I get on my laptop.
**EDIT:** Sorry for being late. Here are few pictures (closest you can get to Plitvice on foot, following river Korana. From here it is all swimming upstream until you reach near the place from the OP – ~1.5 km):
I will upload few more of other spots (5-10) as soon as my father sends them.
Now, finding those swimming spots can be fairly hard. I have tried mapping those places to Google Maps, but it makes no sense – you have to know those small paths through woods etc. Best way is to ask your host to explain it to you. I am sure they will be glad to help.
Also, water temperature of Korana stays around 15 Celsius (up to 20 on a good day), so be careful. We had a few accidents where people would just jump into it and earn a visit to hospital.
