Summers in Georgia are hard if you do not have a pool and do not live by a lake or a beach. There are a few attractions in the state that you can visit for cheap to cool down while enjoying the sun. This hidden man-made beach in Georgia makes you feel like you are in paradise, without the hassle.

Red Clay Resort in Cohutta is the perfect place for all ages to enjoy a hot summer day. It is a privately owned property that has a huge pool right in the middle of it. 

The large pool is spring-fed and has two diving boards so you are in for a great deal of exercise and fun. If you have ever jumped into a river, you will understand how cold this spring pool stays. 

Even in regular backyard pools, you get warm and the water can become hot. Here at Red Clay, you can swim for hours without it feeling the heat.

The water stays around 68 to 70 degrees all the time and it is also 13 feet deep in the middle of the pool.

You can rent pool floats as well, so you do not have to worry about packing your car up with a bunch of floats that will probably pop in the heat. 

Large mattress floats are $10, smaller ones are $5, and a fun tube paddle float is $10. 

When you take a break from swimming, you can grab a snack or a meal at the fully stocked concession stand. You can expect there to be hotdogs, nachos, pizza, snow cones, and ice cream. 

There are also volleyball courts and cornhole stations which makes this location even better.

You will feel like a kid again by the end of the day when you visit Red Clay Resort. The best part is, it is very affordable. 

Monday through Wednesday, admission is $5, and the rest of the week is $7 to get in. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. 

Reviewers say the location is very clean and taken care of very well, and it is fun for everyone and anyone who visits.
