“Great swimming hole within 1.5hrs of DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

We made great time getting to the swim club from DC, arriving in just under 1.5 hrs. We did have to wait in a line of cars for about 20-25 minutes to get in, but it was worth it. Though there were a lot of people there the day we went (Sunday of the July 4 holiday weekend), it wasn't too crowded or a problem at all. I loved the anchored floating islands in the middle of the quarry, great for lounging and tanning. The big rope swing is also a plus, as are the short cliffs you can jump from.

Heads up: Entrance fees are cash only!

“Freshwater swimming, swinging, jumping, and tubing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2007

This is a freshwater swimming quarry and picnic area. There is a rope swing, diving board and places to jump into the water from. I normally have been going to their competitor, but thought I would give this place a try. They are bigger, cleaner, friendlier and run the place very well. They have many lifeguards including one who rides around in a boat to watch out for people. You can bring an inflatable tube or sit in the moored one that they have set up. They have a pool and another one that is really a kiddie pool. They also have volleyball courts and a basketball hoop. This place is more expensive, but has a better crowd. The only thing they are really missing is a zip-line.
