LOOK FOR THE GREEN "ROAD TRIP DIP" TAG ON OUR MAPS
Our "ROAD TRIP DIPS" are easy detours off of major highways to cool off on those long summer trips! On the map, HOLD your cursor OVER the green tag and the HIGHWAY ROUTE NUMBER (eg; I-81) will appear (click here if you don't see this) and, if a short hike is required, the word "HIKE" as well. Then "click" if you are interested in more information.
LOOK FOR THE GREEN CAR "ROAD TRIP DIP" LOGO IN OUR LISTINGS. For "AREA" listings that have multiple swimming holes, look for the green car in the individual swimming holes listing.
WHAT IS A ROAD TRIP DIP ?
Don't those long, hot summer road trips just beg for a refreshing stop to sooth the nerves and cool the savage beast(s)? Our "ROAD TRIP DIPS" are swimming holes within 20 miles of an Interstate Highway exit (or other major vacation travel route). They are places we are familiar with and can assure you that they are also: Easy to find.
Nice, clean, not illegal places (many are also "Walden’s ponds").
Safe under normal flow conditions (but...ALWAYS check the flow level BEFORE you go in!)
No epic hikes - most are only a short stroll -some require a hike but than 2 miles each way
