A Few Months Ago We Were Hopeful That Jacob's Well Would Be Making A Comeback But Our Hopes Have Sunk Deeper Than The Well Itself.

A few years ago, my family and I made the trip to Hays County Texas where the famous swimming hole known as "Jacob's Well" is located.

This weird and unlikely natural site has been visited by THOUSANDS annually and it's usually a wait to get in and see it. However, for the last few months, folks have not been able to take a dip in the well due to dry conditions.

Back In 2023, Hays County Officials announced that Jacob’s Well would be closed for swimmers for the "foreseeable future" due to unsafe conditions.


The photo above is my kid jumping into the well when we visited.

According to KUT Austin, the popular spring-fed watering hole in Wimberley reached zero flow last summer for the sixth time in its recorded history.

After 222 days of nearly zero flow, Jacob’s Well was back rushing with water after rains in January filled it back up.

Unfortunately, Jacob's Well Still Isn't Ready For The Upcoming Swim Season.

In a Facebook post, Hays County Parks posted that Jacob’s Well is suspending its 2024 summer swimming season until further notice. Summer swimming season typically runs from May 1 through Sept. 30.

Hays County officials plan to reevaluate conditions on a month-to-month basis to see if Jacob’s Well could open later this summer.

Although swimming in the well is still not allowed, officials are still offering tours of the site in which guides discuss the history, geology and ecology of the area. Tours are offered every Saturday morning and are free to the public.

Let's HOPE they can reopen soon so we can go back outside and DIVE in!
