An area of naturally occurring water deep enough and large enough for an adult to immerse oneself. Commonly found along streams, creeks, and rivers, or near natural springs, the water should be placid enough for safe swimming.
Sometimes a swimming hole is not naturally occurring and the depth or size has been increased by human intervention along an otherwise natural waterway.
Swimming holes generally feature clear, clean water that is desirable for swimming. (Wildlife tanks are not swimming holes!)
