a birds-eye view

Five Oaks operates for a long pool season from early May to late September, weather permitting. In 2019, our pool was open until October 4th!

Our newly resurfaced pool is a 25 meter pool with a 2-3 foot shallow area, 8 foot diving well, 6 swimming lanes, 6 diving blocks and 4 panel high AquaClimb® climbing wall. Surrounding the pool, we have plenty of lounge chairs, tables with umbrellas, and high-top tables, as well as pool noodles and toys members may use.

Our pool, surrounded by forest and with a view of the lake, is quiet and serene. The forest provides plenty of shade in the morning and afternoon. And there’s plenty of space to spread out, relax, play, swim laps, and soak up sun!


Our pool is fully staffed with lifeguards during peak times (like weekends, afternoons & evenings), and unguarded off-peak (mornings & off-season weekends). Check the schedule below for hours and guarding schedule. For kids 5 years old and younger, we also have a 1 foot wading pool. Please note that lifeguards do not guard the wading pool, and children must be attended.

Pool Policies, Notices & Notes (SUBJECT TO CHANGE Due To COVID-19 – See ON-SITE Postings)

Food: You are welcome to enjoy drinks and snacks inside the pool gates. Please clean up after yourself and your kids so that we do not attract ants or unwanted critters. We ask that you take any meals (pizza, parties, etc), as well as anything in a glass bottle, to the picnic tables just outside the gates. No glass is allowed inside the gate at any time. Snack and soda machines are available in the hallway outside the fitness center.

Additional guests may join for $10/day, for up to 10 total guests. Guest fees are payable at the Five Oaks office or Five Oaks pool, when staff is on-site. If no staff is on-site, please leave your guest fee in the secure Black Drop Box outside and to the left of the main clubhouse door.

Non-members: Five Oaks Club is strictly for members and their guests only. We do not have a “day-use” fee available for non-members.

Pool parties: Five Oaks has a strict 10 guests/day per family policy. We staff the pool based on expected usage and are not equipped, either with or without notice, to handle large parties. As such, large parties are unsafe and will be turned away at the gates by our lifeguards.

Pool phone: The pool phone number is (919) 493-2604. Please do not leave messages at this number.

Pool closings: Our pool manager and staff make all determinations as to pool closings due to inclement weather, lightning potential and safety concerns.  Please respect their decision to move swimmers out of the pool and to close the pool at will – if you have any questions about a closing, please contact the Five Oaks office.

Swim team: The Five Oaks Swim Team practices mornings (8:30-10am) and evenings (5:30- 7pm) mid May- early July. During these times, 5 of the 6 lap lanes are reserved for swim team members. The swim team also typically hosts 2 home meets where the pool will be entirely closed for a few hours in the morning. Members are emailed about any closures with 24 hours advance notice.

Summer camps: Five Oaks summer campers are in the pool between 1-4 pm in the summer. There are never more than 15 campers in the water at any one time, and they are always attended by camp counselors. For any concerns with our campers, please contact the Five Oaks office.

Aqua Climb Rules: Only one climber at a time (no exceptions). Once you drop from the wall, clear the drop zone immediately. “Climb. Drop. Swim to the ladder”. Stay out of the drop zone when others are climbing! Share the wall – “Take a climb and get in line” (1 climb per kid on busy days please)
