On the following dates and times you may come as an individual and pay a $10 per person admission, which allows you to swim in the quarry during the specified time. Lifeguards are not provided and all swimming is at your own risk. The water is 25 feet deep.


During "open swim" times, smoking, alcoholic beverages, cooking on site, fishing, and bringing your own dog (canine) are prohibited, however you may bring a picnic lunch and non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy while at the quarry.

Swim parties are the ultimate fun. Imagine yourself swimming in cool blue water, basking in the sun, serving one up on the sugar sand beach volleyball court, or playing stick till your arm gets tired with Murphy, the official party animal and director of fun.


Swim parties are by advance reservation only and can be scheduled Monday through Thursday for groups sized 25 or more. You must have an advance reservation. Monday through Thursday available time slots are 9:30 am until 3:00 pm or 4:30 pm until 9:30 pm.

Swim parties have the option of having a catered meal for all the guests consisting of: Big, juicy grilled hamburgers, grilled hot dogs, veggie burgers for any vegetarians, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, buns and condiments, as well as, potato chips and fresh, seasonal fruit. Sweet tea, water, and soft drinks are also included and are available for the duration of the event. Cost is $20 per person for a private swim party with the meal listed above. There is a 25 person minimum. 

If you wish to reserve the Quarry for a swim party without catering or without any food or beverage, the cost is $10 per person.  There is a 25 person minimum.  

Please call and we can help you reserve a private time exclusively for you and your guests.

At your swim party, all swimming is at your own risk; however, you have the choice to have, or not to have, one or more certified lifeguards. While lifeguards are optional, all of the water at the quarry is over your head and is 25 feet deep.  Although lifeguards are not mandatory, many events elect to reserve one or more lifeguards.  Certified lifeguards increase the cost by $15 per hour, per lifeguard. Lifeguards must be arranged in advance.

Regardless, whether you choose to have a lifeguard at your event or not, swim noodles and life jackets are available for your usage.  Please bear in mind that swim noodles are not an approved flotation device and are not a substitute for a properly fitting life jacket.  If you have a favorite life jacket, that fits you well, be sure to bring that to your swim party.
