The main swimming area at Blue Hole Park looks amazing! You can wade or go all the way in. Not only that there are mini-rapids you can inner-tube and float down as well. It's a natural lazy river and in some places not so lazy from the looks of it! The water is said to be nice and cool, spring-like, clean, and radiant blue.
