“A great way to spend the day.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This was an awesome place to bring my three boys. The water was a bit cold for my husband and I. It was 68 degrees. It is very clean. There are plenty of life guards.

“Interesting local place for swimming”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

On a very hot day, it was pleasant to visit this natural swimming place and watch the local people relaxing and enjoying the cool water, swimming, diving, or just sitting by the banks.

Plenty of trees and picnic tables, etc. for relaxing and enjoying an ice cone or a water melon juice.

“Great place on a hot day”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

For just $3 you can cool off in a huge 3 acre pool filled by a natural spring. (It's 68º) There is very little food available and it's expensive. but I enjoyed ice cream!
