Swimming holes are a natural, free way to have fun in the water.  Whether you are skipping rocks or jumping off of them, our local swimming holes are a fun adventure for people of all ages. The places located within a National Park often have a day pass fee of $5-10.  Make sure you bring cash in small bills to cover this cost.
