“The Worlds Largest Spring-fed Swimming Pool”

Balmorhea State Park in the awesome state of Texas is home to, “The worlds largest spring-fed swimming pool”!  More than 15 million gallons of water flows through the pool each day, gushing from the crystal clear waters of the  San Solomon Springs.DSCN4591

The pool is up to 25 feet deep, covers 1.3 acres, and holds 3.5 million gallons of water. The water temperature stays at 72 to 76 degrees year-round.Balmorhea

The water felt so good 😎

The campgrounds are clean and pretty well maintained.  The campsites are pretty spread out so you don’t really see your neighbors, (we were in site 28).

We were treated to a beautiful sunset with dinner! DSCN4637

Balmorhea is a hidden jewel in Texas 🙂 .
