This Natural Artesian Well Swimming Hole in South Carolina Is So Hidden You’ll Probably Have It All To Yourself

Summertime and swimming holes are a natural combination in the Palmetto State. Aside from the biggest swimming hole of them all–the Atlantic Ocean–the state is swimming (all pun intended!) with them, including an artesian well swimming hole in South Carolina that’s a bit of a rarity, at least on this scale.

Have you ever dipped your toes or taken a leap into an artesian well swimming hole in South Carolina at Lee State Park?

If you prefer to be on top of the water rather than in the water, head to nearby Goodale State Park to explore a three-mile kayak trail through cypress trees.
