  • Ask the park person nicely and you may get to park in Lot C, which is the closest to the hole. Pretty amazing swimming hole where the water is 70 degrees year round.

  • Not gonna lie. I thought the width of the well would have been bigger but it was absolutely beautiful to see. We didn’t go during swim season and that was because it was quiet and there were few...

  • Really cool natural water hole. The water temp is a constant 68 degrees and some nice rocks to jump from for the brave. It wasn't crowded when we went but it's not a very big area so I can see why you need a reservation. There is also a cost for swimming that you pay when you make the reservation. It looks like there are some nice hiking trails too, that i believe are free.
  • This is a little slice of paradise. You will need reservations to swim at the blue hole. It fills up quick! The paths are very tidy and distinct. There are plenty of picnic tables along the way if you do need a short rest. The staff were very helpful and informative. I can't wait to return!!
  • Nice swimming hole, but there shouldn't be a fee to swim. It's free to walk down and look at the hole, but $9 if you want to get in the water and cool off. Charging people to see something nature created. Not cool. If it were landowners charging the fee, fine, but its not. Its government collecting fees for something that cost them nothing to build.
  • Very nice hiking trails. Lots to see and walk, not just the well. The well is very beautiful and clear with fish swimming inside. Trails are easy to navigate with clear signage on the route you need to take. The have an indoor nature center with some things to see as well as a a video of a dive exploring the underwater well to watch. There are multiple things for kids to do as well. They even have a large loose parts play area to build things.
  • We took the guided tour on Saturday morning at 9 am. Good history of the ancient geology and the underground cavern with a river. Worth planning for the tour. There are several parking lots. Skip the first lot and go to the lot near the nature center building where the tour starts. Allow between 1-2 hours total.
