A main attraction of Ingram is the swimming activities because of how the Guadalupe River runs through the town. A staple of this is Ingram Dam, a structure where the water flows easily over the dam, creating a layer of algae in the stream down the concrete. People frequently congregate and swim around the dam, as well as sliding down the slick algae for recreation.
