Open Swim at Carrigan Farms Quarry 30 Minutes Outside of Charlotte
Need a fun idea for a summer activity? Carrigan Farms located in Mooresville offers open swim at their natural quarry. Right now, they are requiring people to make reservations with the day and time they want to swim.
When you reserve, you’ll pay $5 per person as a deposit. Then, once you arrive, you’ll pay an additional $15 per person Monday – Thursday and $20 per person Friday – Sunday. They do NOT take credit or debit cards, so make sure to bring cash or paper checks. You’ll also receive a $5 voucher per person for food and drinks at their farm’s restaurant.
Carrigan Farms also has a restaurant that serves pizza, grilled chicken sandwiches, veggie burgers, salads, fresh fruit, ice cream, snow cones, beer, and wine.
The website says outside food and drink as well as pets are not permitted.
The farm requires each person to fill out and sign a waiver before swimming. They also require everyone to wear a life jacket unless you are over age 12 and pass their swim assessment. Life jackets are free to use.
There is also catch-and-release fishing if you bring your own gear. Their two ponds are stocked with bass, bream, and crappie.
