There’s something about deep blue water, sand between your toes and the summer sun shining down on you. Here in Ohio, we have several swimming holes and beaches that make summer fun for the whole family. If you want to travel more off the beaten path though, consider visiting a deep-water Ohio quarry. With spring-fed water and deep blue pools, the following are 6 of our favorite quarry lakes in Ohio where you can swim, scuba dive and more. (Please note: To stay up to date on when each quarry opens for the season this year, check out the website or Facebook page link beneath each photo.)
