Went to this place for the first time last weekend (July 5th), what a pretty place. Quiet, clean, no chlorine! You can BBQ right outside of the pool area or bring a picnic with you. My only warning is IT'S A NATURAL POOL, you may see fish/frogs in the water. It's like swimming in a lake or other body of... More

It was nothing like what I had seen on the website. The place looked run-down. The person who checked us in, though, was very nice. It is a natural pool (like swimming in a lake). However, I didn't know there were salamanders in the water!!! Couldn't do it, had to get my money back.

Cool water, you won't cool off any better. Opens Memorial Day weekend and then is open every day till 7PM after school closes. It's complete with... More

Chlorine free water and they provide kids with a net and a small container to catch salamanders, tad poles and frogs. They have a kids pool, an adult pool and... More

I'm a little bit prejudiced because I grew up near here, and this is the pool where I learned how to swim, but having traveled all over the world, I have yet to find a better place to swim. It's clean, uncrowded, in beautiful rustic surroundings. No chlorine so your eyes won't burn, the water comes from a mountain stream... More

The Highlands Natural Pool is a stream-fed chemical-free pond with stone retaining walls and a safe children’s area -- a great place to swim in a natural setting during the summer. The pool is adjacent to Norvin Green State Forest which contains miles of hiking trails. The pool is a great destination for a summer day of picnicing, hiking, and... More
