The hidden gem of the Wyanokie Highlands, this Olympic-sized, stream-fed freshwater swimming pool is located in a wooded setting adjacent to the 5,400 acre Norvin Green State Forest.
Visit for the day! Provisional memberships (day passes) are available at the entrance for $10 per adult and $3-$5 for kids depending upon their age. Please note that the pool only accepts cash at this time.
In 1935, the pool was carved out of a hillside, fed by a mountain stream. No chemicals are used in the pool. The Highlands Natural Pool is a 501(c)3 non-profit community-owned and operated facility.
NOTICE: For the remainder of 2016 the season we will be limiting the number of people who may visit the Pool on any given day. Once we reach that limit, we will post a sign at the parking lot stating "POOL FULL". After that, only members will be able to enter that day. Non-members should call the Pool in advance at (973) 835-4299, to find out whether the Pool is full.
