One of the best things about staying in one of the Log Cabins at FoxFire is the natural swimming hole on the spring-fed Sabinal River. It is just as short walk down to the waters edge where people can enjoy swimming, fishing (or fly-fishing), rock and fossil hunting, and floating or lounging around. Many guests have gone as far to say that there is not another swimming hole like it. The river is good for people of all ages as there is a portion with rapids at one end and then the huge swimming hole that gradually gets from shallow to deep so there’s a depth that is right for everyone. The huge limestone rock out in the center is a great place to jump into the Sabinal river at its deepest part which is usually around 10 feet deep. Being so close the headwaters of the river allows the cabins to be situated closer to the river than other areas further downstream where flooding can be a bigger problem. Finding a swimming hole as big as FoxFire’s as close to the headwaters as this one is rare.
