This is a great day trip but get there early so you can get a space to set your things. By midmorning, this place is packed. The water is FREEZING! We went on a day when it was almost 100 degrees out and the water...More

This is a terrific place to escape from the craziness of cities. I've been going up there since childhood and it's gotten even better. The pool is free of chlorine and fed by streams. There are large sun-protected tables on one side. Before entering the...More

This is a very large stream fed pool in the woods of Ringwood. A very natural atmosphere. If you are looking for pristine and chlorine, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a beautiful, earthy, wooded setting and don't mind...More

If you compare this to a town swimming pool, it's really nice. The water is clean, without chlorine. That's a big plus. The surroundings are quite lovely. The pool is split into two sections, a shallow area for children, where you can use pool noodles...More

For $10 I find it very cheap! Staff are so friendly, the pool is so big, everything around is calm, beautiful and relaxing. So many insects, but that's nature.

Went to this place for the first time last weekend (July 5th), what a pretty place. Quiet, clean, no chlorine! You can BBQ right outside of the pool area or bring a picnic with you. My only warning is IT'S A NATURAL POOL, you may...More
