Swim in the Blue Lagoon

Huntsville, Texas

based on 1 reviews


Added by sophie waller

The water is clear and cool and deep and the sights are absolutely breathtaking.

Just north of Huntsville and Houston, Texas, the Blue Lagoon is the perfect place to cool off and watch the sunlight reflect off the water. There is also a great opportunity to walk through the wooded area behind the  lake and take some pictures of the trees and the water. This is really a lovely place to hang out and very secluded if you don't go on busy days.

Swim in the Blue Lagoon Reviews

I've lived and outdoorsed in the Houston area for 66 years and I had never heard of this place. I researched just a bit and it appears that it's a private lake owned by a scuba diving operation. Their website clearly states you can't make a reservation unless you're a diver, and swimming is only allowed if and when the divers are done. Reading reviews, it sounds as if the divers don't appreciate the presence of the swimmers and the swimmers don't appreciate the presence of the divers. But everyone seems to agree it's a lovely spot, but with management issues.
