“The World's Largest Spring-fed Pool!”
Dive into the cool waters of the world’s largest spring-fed swimming pool, which covers 1.75 acres and stays at 72–76 degrees year round. Scuba divers love the clarity even at a 25-foot depth. In addition to swimming and camping, the San Solomon Springs Courts offer motel-style retro lodging built by the CCC in the 1930s with a Southwestern adobe look; most units have kitchens. Canals along the Courts lead to a restored ciénega (wetland), where a window built below ground provides a fish-eye’s view of the underwater world. For wildlife lovers, the San Solomon Springs is home to endangered fishes, assorted invertebrates, and turtles. Other animals include resident and migrant birds, deer, javelina, hawks, barn swallows, waterfowl, ground squirrels, roadrunners, and more.
If you're in the area, stop in for a quick dip in the pool. Yes, it will cost you 10bucks per car, but it really is a special place in the middle of nowhere.
Really clear blue water. It is hard to believe it is really that deep. It was a little cool for swimming but we will plan a trip to come back here.
My daughter loves to swim and also loves all critters so this was a perfect stop for her. She was bummed she didn’t bring her swimsuit but she still had a great time looking at the soft shell turtles, fish and ducks. We will definitely come back better prepared and in slightly warmer weather so she can fully enjoy.
scuba camping? loved it. big for a spring fed pool. don't expect a lake.
this is an awesome and quaint camp site - the pool is beautiful - 100% recommended
So many fans of this place. Get active though since the pipeline was approved and will impact this natural wonder. Write your congressman and stop the big oil pipeline!!
Love this pool. One caveat: watch your footing, if you walk in via the stairs -- slippery with aquatic plants like a little soft rug!!
The campground was wonderful even cable tv if you want to pay for it. The day we left they had about 20 volunteers cleaning and pruning.
It's beautiful. The water is so clear and it's amazing. The pools floor is natural but it is still a pool. Cool water and great for hot days. It's hard to leave
Definitely worth it! We stopped in for a quick swim on the way through. The water is crystal clear. The best part for the kids were the little fish and catfish in the water that you get to swim with.
