“ We heard about this place and went to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised and decided to join that day. There are negative reviews from people about this pool but I’m sure these people were looking for a clear chlorinated pool which this is not. It is not a dirty place as some described at all. It’s like swimming in lake water. Weekends can get crowded but if you complain about space to sit, there is always the field area away from the pool which I prefer as it quieter and lots of space. It’s a pool that you like it or you don’t. Most times it’s a peaceful place to relax and swim. We really enjoy it. ”

“ About a year ago my boyfriend dragged me to this place after we ran out of lakes to visit. Every lake we have visited or beach is always crowded at the swimming area and picnic/BBQ as well. We went to the natural pool and we had a great time, it felt like we were in a totally different country. The air, the scenery, the people working there, and also the visitors. Everyone was a lot nicer and friendlier. ”
