Unlike most states, Texas still has quite a bit longer before the cool weather rolls in. This makes us lucky in some ways, and unlucky in others, but we like to look at the glass half full. One way of maintaining that optimism is discovering every last hidden treasure in the state that you possibly can. The crystal clear Campbell's Hole in Austin is one more to add to your list, where fun is only a dive away.
The Barton Creek Greenbelt has many access points, one of which will lead you to the unbelievable Campbell's Hole. It's located about a mile upstream from Barton Springs, located on Barton Creek. As we said before, there are many access points at the Barton Creek Greenbelt; Spyglass Road is one of them and if you turn left onto the trail you'll run into the swimming hole before you know it. Not many places like this are free to visit, but this location is.
The bluffs at Campbell's Hole make it the perfect location for cliff diving. They're just high enough to give you thrills and chills, without anyone getting hurt. You'll land in some of the most refreshing water your skin has ever touched, perfect for the remaining hot weather. This is exactly the kind of place you want to be before next month.
If you can't make it to the greenbelt before the end of the month, there's still plenty of gorgeous sightseeing to do. Austin is slowly becoming a major vacation destination and it's easy to see why, with swimming holes like this. Make the dive today!
