Everyone could use a break from these triple-digit temperatures in Oklahoma and one of the best places to cool down is in a swimming hole. We have about a dozen to choose from in the state and one of them is a man-made swimming hole at Gage Artesian Beach. This place looks like a giant swimming pool but it’s actually filled with mineral water and has a sandy bottom. It’s the most unique swimming hole in the state and a visit here will make you feel like a kid on summer vacation.

Follow along on their official Facebook page for the latest news and announcements.

If you get a chance to visit Woodward, Oklahoma on your way to Gage, we highly recommend you take some time and enjoy this friendly town. It is described as “a town where everyone is family” and was once a finalist for the “The Friendliest Town In America” contest by bestoftheroad.com. The vibe is chill, and you’ll be greeted by friendly faces everywhere you go.
