English term or phrase: swimming hole
It would be foolish to try to convince you that my swimming hole is better than yours.
We'd knock off and head for any one of our favourite swimming holes: Swink's Bottom, Jennings Creek, Buffalo Bend, Goshen Pass.

arroyo, rio, laguna
Explanation:
When I was a kid (many moons ago)I along with all the kids called the creek (arryo) the swimming hole. The creek at the local park was called a swimming hole. The creek behind our property is called the swimming hole by everyone. It´s not called a hole because it´s in shape of a hole. It´s call a hole because it is deep enough to swim in; with no regards to size.

Hope this helps.

Bye

Explanation:
Segun el contexto, creo entender que el grupo de amigos nadaba en rios o lagos. Normalmente, la zona profunda y de aguas tranquilas de un rio en la que se puede nadar se le llama "poza".
