Swimming Holes

Cool Off in a Swimming Hole Near Chattanooga

Swimming holes are what Southeastern summers are all about. And while the Chattanooga area is home to some seriously incredible places to take a natural dip, it's also home to plenty of private land with a number of tricky access issues. So, disclaimer: It's likely that your favorite Chattanooga swimming hole won't appear on this list. That said, even though some of the swimming holes mentioned in our blogs below require a bit more drive time than others, they're all totally worth the effort in the end—especially on hot and humid summer days.
