The Incredible Spring-Fed Pool In New Jersey You Absolutely Need To Visit

There are only 47 days until Memorial Day and we all know what that means – beach weather! Crowds will be flocking to the shore but the ocean isn’t the only place in New Jersey to have fun in the sun. Our state has several natural springs, but you can’t swim in the Blue Hole. If you’re looking to dive into a spectacular natural spring in our state, you’ll want to head to The Highlands Natural Pool in Ringwood.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
As the only pool of its kind in the area, and as an important part of history, everyone in New Jersey should visit this natural spring-fed pool at least once. Who knew that the first racially integrated summer camp was right here in our state? Have you visited Highlands Natural Pool before? Share your experiences!
