The Travel Channel rolled off its list of the 'Top Swimming Holes in America' -- and look what made the list: Quarry Park, the only spot in Minnesota to make their Top-Ten list. Of course it's no secret to us here in Central Minnesota. Happy Summer! No go jump in a lake quarry.

The Travel Channel had this to say about Quarry Park:

Just outside of St. Cloud, Minn., Quarry Park Nature Preserve has the highest concentration of quarries anywhere in the United States. The quarries' red granite, approximately 1.8 billion years old, has been used in famous buildings around the country, such as the FDR monument in Washington, D.C. Now, the red granite cliffs encompass two fun-filled swimming holes. Quarry 11 – recently opened in the summer of 2015 – has its own unique sandy beach, while Quarry 2 – 116 feet deep – features jumps that range from 10 to 24 feet!
