The Natural Swimming Hole In New Jersey You’ll Want To Visit Before Summer Ends

When it comes to swimming spots, New Jersey isn’t lacking. We’ve got gorgeous ocean beaches all along our coast, river beaches, lake beaches, bay beaches, municipal pools, quarries, waterparks… If you’d like to take a dip, the Garden State has got you covered. Of course, there are more New Jerseyans than swimming spots, so some can get crowded. If you’re looking to discover a hidden gem, here it is.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

You’re going to want to visit ASAP. However, you’ll need to know a Ridgewood resident OR current season pass holder. While season passes are open to anyone (and very affordable), you’ll need to be a resident, resident’s guest or member’s guest to get a $10 day pass. If you don’t have a buddy in this beautiful town, no worries. Wait until next summer and snag yourself a season pass. Find Graydon Pool at 259 N Maple Ave., Ridgewood. For another natural swimming hole in New Jersey, check out Highlands Pool. If you’re closer to Hopewell, check out the Quarry Swim Club.
