Lareau Swimming Hole

Ages: All Ages Parking: Yes

Located off Route 100 across from Lareau Farm Inn, this swimming hole offers a little something for everyone. Shallow waters near the shore are great for little ones learning how to tread water, while directly across the river, rocks provide a seven-foot-tall platform to leap into a 12-foot-deep water for the older, bolder crowd.

Bring a picnic and a blanket--it also boasts a sandy bank, grass picnic area, parking and toilet facilities. Or stop by American Flatbread for dinner afterwards. It's located just down the road.

    "This is THE BEST family swimming hole we've been to so far! There is a wonderful swimming area, small beach, grassy picnic area, portolet although not always so clean...AWESOME jumping rock that's not too high for kids but just high enough to get a rush. Follow the trail behind the jumping rock and find a great little waterfall. Lots of parking off the road. Grate spot to go for a bike ride and then jump in the river to cool off. Also, conveniently located across the street from the American Flat Bread company."
