Deep Eddy Pool is an historic, man-made swimming pool and is the oldest swimming pool in Texas. In 1915, A.J. Eilers, Sr. bought the land surrounding the swimming hole and built the concrete pool.  The pool gets its name from an eddy formed by a large boulder in a popular swimming area on the river. Cold springs rose from the river banks next to this popular swimming area and the water from these springs continue to fill the pool today. 

NOTICE:  Please note, beginning Monday, January 8, 2024, Deep Eddy Pool will close for repairs. Improvements include replacement of a damaged bulkhead, as well as upgrading older deck lighting. The project is expected to last for eight (8) weeks.
