Take a dip in ye olde swimming hole…

It’s starting to get pretty darn hot across certain latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere — some would say it’s the perfect time to start scouting out local swimming spots for cooling off in mother nature the old-fashioned way, sans the chlorine and claustrophobic atmosphere of modern swimming pools.

Thanks to a tip from longtime Arthur contributing writer Peter Relic, we are now clued into SwimmingHoles.info, an online database that makes it easy to locate beautiful, natural dipping holes in your area:

SwimmingHoles.info focuses on moving, fresh water spots – like creeks, rivers, springs and waterfalls. Also listed are some selected hot springs (in the west) and other swimming places on lakes, quarries or bays which have unique features that make them especially beautiful or fun for swimming.

  1. i second this site! Swimmingholes.info led us to an amazing swim hole while driving through southern KY – i heartily recommend checking out Dog Slaughter Falls next time you’re passing through and have a couple hours to kill!

  2. The location of swimming holes, like caves, is coveted information, often kept under radar by locals. Readers should be sure to “leave no trace” when visiting these holes.
