East Texas Swimming Holes – The Retreat at Artesian Lakes
Is there such a thing as a “luxury swimming hole” in East Texas? Absolutely, and this is it.
The Retreat at Artesian Lakes has a very nice swimming lake, a Texas sized saltwater swimming pool, and a twelve-person hot tub.
If you want to explore the water beyond the swimming area, the lake is 300 acres – big! Access is available for canoes, kayaks, and electric powered boats. Boat rentals are available.
The lake is also popular with fishermen. Bass are catch and release, but they also have catfish, perch, and rainbow trout. The Retreat at Artesian Lakes even has a special stocked fishing lake for children, the Bluegill Pond.
If your family enjoys hiking together, there are miles and miles of trails at The Retreat at Artesian Lakes. Most offer wildlife viewing. You could see an alligator, blue heron, red fox, gray fox, or giant alligator snapping turtle.
Beautiful cabins are available for rent. Big family? Their luxury cabins offer up to six bedrooms.
