  • It's a cool spot to relax and pretty much watch people jump in to the well since it's very crowded. But it's a sight to see!  more »

  • Jacob's well is a gem amongst the Hill Country's swimming holes. It's a spring-fed cave (karstic spring). The mouth is 12 feet wide and it's 120 feet deep. Water is a constant 68 degrees (like Barton ...  more »

  • There is nothing to do in off season. Dont waste your time if you are coming when you cannot swim. The park has nothing to offer and is surrounded by private land (with trespassing signs.) The park is very small with nothing but the well to see. The well itself was nice to see; but it took all of 5 minutes to visit and leave this park.
  • You have to reserve a two hour time slot in advance. Make sure you put in the number of people in your party. If there isn't an option for that that means there's only one slot left for the day. Entrance is $9 per adult. They give you a colored wristband for your timeslot. When your timeslot is up, they ask you to get out of the water. Don't just jump in from the rocks. The best part was diving. It's gorgeous.
  • Little getaway. Very nice experience. Nice staff. She actually have me two wrist bands because i arrived late and my two hour reservation was gonna be up soon. Previous reservation is required
  • As a naturalist, Jacob's Well is a remarkable visit. Divers would prove to find a neat little challenges. Casual visitors should be advised of the limits to this park, and plan a back up. The staff there is minimal, though helpful. You'll find a cute little town that hosts it, though I recommend buying your day's essentials before taking off. There's not much else to the park outside of the well. Expect there to be a good deal of people and I recommend wearing proper water-footwear due to the algae build up on the ground. It's a neat experience if planned accordingly.
  • Great place that used to be easy to access for all locals. It's weird to me that you have to pay and there's a limit to the number of people present now but it's still just as wonderful as it was before.
