The hidden gem of the Wyanokie Highlands, this Olympic-sized, stream-fed freshwater pool is located adjacent to Norvin Green State Forest. The grounds include a picnic and barbecue area. There is direct access to a recreation field (including a softball backstop), volleyball court, ping-pong tables, and over 21 miles of hiking trails.

In 1935, the swimming pool was carved out of the hillside. Today the Highlands Natural Pool is a 501(c)3 non-profit community-owned and operated facility. No chemicals are used in the Pool.

Visitors are welcome! For a modest day-fee, you can become a Provisional Member and try us out! See our visitor information page for hours of operation, ground rules for the picnic grove, frequently asked questions, etc.

Important Note: if you are planning to visit as a group of 20 or more people, you need to read this first before coming!
