Swimming in a deep, refreshing natural quarry is the perfect way to cool off in the summer. Located about thirty minutes north of Charlotte, the quarry at Carrigan Farms is an oasis.
This year, reservations are required – click the button above to make a reservation now. Dates and times currently available to reserve are listed in the booking window. Any date listed but referenced as “unavailable” is sold out and will not accept any walk-in customers. Additional dates and times later into the summer are added weekly.
The restaurant at the quarry serves farm fresh favorites like the “Quarry Burger”, grilled chicken sandwiches, scratch made pizza, veggie burgers, fresh salads, fruit cups, ice cream and snow cones, as well as fresh items that change daily. Beer and wine are also available for purchase. Please note that no outside food or beverages may be brought to open swim.
Online Reservation Details:
Guests who reserve in advance pay a $5 per person deposit at the time of reservation, then, upon arrival on the day of their visit, receive a $5 dining voucher to use at the restaurant at the quarry. The remaining portion of admission is due when reserved guests arrive at the farm. Note that cash or paper check are the only forms of payment accepted at the door. The reservation window to book, modify, or cancel a reservation stays open until 24 hours before the start time of any given open swim. After that time the reservation window closes and the $5 per person deposit becomes non-refundable. Please also note that walk-in customers will be limited to any remaining availability and will not receive a $5 dining voucher.
What To Bring and What to Expect:
ALL entrants to the quarry are required to have a signed waiver prior to entry. Children must have a parent or guardian complete their waiver. Once you make your reservation, the link to fill out your waiver is included in the confirmation email. If you have additional guests in your reservation, just forward them the confirmation email with the link to the waiver. The waiver will be linked to your reservation and will be checked upon arrival.
