We were on our way through Santa Rosa and noticed signs for the Blue Hole. This was a weekday evening in May, so there was no one around except for a car full of vocal *ahem* local teens driving around the parking lot yelling obscenities. After they left, we stayed for about an hour, walking around the hole, dipping our feet in, and just exploring the area. The water is a beautiful natural phenomenon. Just make sure you drive the speed limit on the small road out of the area. Local law enforcement waits at the end for any tourist unlucky enough to miss the posted sign!

Blue Hole is a very deep lake with a rather small circumfrence. People travel there from miles around just to play in the summer waters as well as practice scuba diving. If one is not planning on either of those activities, it is fun to look at for a few minutes.

The locals try to keep this site clean,but the parking lot is worn out
and while it is publicized as a 'must see' we were not impressed.
There is a diving school on the site that operates year round for those
interested in getting certified.

Ever wanted to cliff dive, but were afraid? Well you can do a mini "cliff dive" at the Blue Hole. Also a great photo op!

We heard about the Blue Hole, and decided to go see what it was. We found the park first, and thought that was it, but then discovered it on down the road. It was totally amazing! We didn't go in, but we watched people dive. Next time we'll make sure we go in! It isn't very big, 80 feet across, I think. But it is deep, and there are caverns beyond it. And it is very cold. Very inviting!
