Gage Artesian Beach

The Gage Artesian Beach offers a unique swimming hole unlike any other in Oklahoma. While digging for oil in 1917, a crew struck water and the rest is history. Today, the natural swimming area has cement sides like a pool and a sandy, lake-like bottom. The mineral-laden waters were once said to cure ailments and the Artesian Beach spent time as a popular health resort. Today, the swimming hole is a draw for anyone looking to cool off during hot summer months. The mineral water is excellent for floating, and a slide and diving board guarantee a good time. The water ranges from three to 14 feet deep and the natural pool has a few fish in it, although swimmers rarely see them. Picnic and restroom facilities are also located on site. The Gage Artesian Beach is open seasonally and a concession stand is available to provide swimmers with drinks and snacks.
