Join now through April 15, 2021 to SAVE up to $25 on your membership.



The Highlands Natural Pool is the perfect place to unplug and take a pause from your busy life. We are open to the public for swimming, picnics, hiking, and recreation. Annual memberships and day passes are available to all.

 

In 1935, the pool was carved out of a hillside by the New York chapter of The Nature Friends who owned what was then called Camp Midvale and is now a 501(c)3 non-profit community-owned and operated facility.

 

Listed as one of "The 21 Places in New Jersey You Need to Visit in 2021," and named the best swimming hole in New Jersey, this Olympic-sized, stream-fed swimming pool is located in a scenic wooded setting adjacent to Norvin Green State Forest in Ringwood, NJ. No chemicals are used in the pool.

 

Day passes can be purchased at the entrance. We accept cash and credit cards for both entry fees and refreshments ($5.00 minimum to charge).
