A woman was so impressed with a TV feature about the world's biggest residential swimming pool, she drove 150 miles for a dip in it - only to find that, of course, it's not open to the public.

The $3 million pool, in El Campo, Texas, features slides, waterfalls, a bar, rope swinging, rock climbing, and even its own lazy river.

The pool's owner, Mike Mobley, told ABC13: "Everybody has a good time here. This is a great place to come relax, kick back."

Evidently, he was talking about friends and family - but is now having to turn away complete strangers who also thought it looked pretty cool.



According to the Metro, Mikayla Mobley said: "It's a big liability reason.

"It's in our back yard and we're not here all day, and we're responsible for everything that happens here."

Jenny Nguyen saw the feature about the pool - and mistakenly thought it was open to everyone. So she drove 150 miles for a dip, only to be turned away.

She told ABC13: "I thought it was so beautiful. And I thought it was public, so I drove from Houston all the way here."
