The Quarry At Carrigan Farms In North Carolina Is Spring-Fed Fun For The Whole Family
Make your summer in North Carolina epic with a visit to a spring-fed swimming hole located in a former granite quarry. While a whole host of other
swimming holes in North Carolina offer respite from the heat of the summer sun, the Quarry at Carrigan Farms is a delightfully huge oasis with rope swings, cliff jumps, and diving decks high above the water.
Located approximately 30 miles north of Charlotte, The Quarry at Carrigan Farms is a seasonal spot for families to gather and make memories to last for years to come.
The old quarry was originally mined for its exquisite granite until the digging exposed a natural spring that soon filled the quarry with water - and the rest is history. Additionally, the watering hole is also filled with fresh water that pours over a waterfall in certain seasons. It's a scene worthy of keepsake photos to remember the day.
Before you go, you'll need to make a
an open swim reservation. And in 2021, The Quarry is limiting the number of people each day in order to continue allowing for social distancing.
All visitors should plan to use a life vest. Although those age 12 and over can elect to take and pass a swim test upon arrival. Passing means you can forego the life vest. All visitors age 11 and under will need to wear a life vest at all times.
In addition to the cliffs, diving platforms, and rope swings, The Quarry also has an on-site restaurant so you can refuel on your swim day. Swimmers are also invited to bring along a fishing pole to fish in one of the farm's two ponds.
