Nice place for a local getaway. Can get a bit crowded in the middle of the day, best time is early morning or later in the day. There's not enough parking for this attraction as it's a big hit with locals. Dog friendly with a few hiking trails. Water is nice and clean.

This place is super cool! There were lots of kids jumping off of rocks into the water, people relaxing, families and pets there. Certainly plan on visiting here again in the near future. Such a peaceful and beautiful place!

Best walk with views! Worth every minute spent at this location. We can't wait to go back! The water was clear and the weather was breathtaking!

This park is just so pretty. A fun little hike, and a fun little area. The view is pretty and the water is nice and cold 😁.

A wonderful family friendly and pet friendly place to cool down, explore, have a picnic, or relax. There are sometimes little booths set up which is a fun activity to do. There are restrooms and restraunts close by. Dogs enjoy splashing around, sunning, running, and playing.

Good for walking or biking but needed some TLC. Most trash cans were full and weeds were over grown.

This is a swimming hole in Georgetown. It is surrounded by bluffs, has a path to cross it, and also walking trails, and a pic nic area. We really enjoyed this little gem.

Because I don't do the political correctness nonsense, gonna tell it like it is! On hot weekends: The Blue Hole becomes a blue mess when a certain element of society shows up! Loud music, trash, dogs running around off leash, and kids jumping off the rock walls in defiance of the rules! The rest of the time: The Blue Hole... More

Having been a local at Gtown, Blue Hole was one of the jewels of the town. Gtown has real good parks, and Blue Hole is no exception. Bit rocky, but in my opinion that only adds to its charm.
