If You Didn’t Know About These 10 Swimming Holes In Maine, You’ve Been Missing Out

As we ease into the middle of a very warm summer, we’re trying to find the best ways to cool down in Maine. We love the beach, but that water can be cold no matter what time of year it is. Lakes are great too, but often filled with other folks who have the same idea. That’s why we love the best swimming holes in Maine. They’re often visited only by locals who live close and they’re always a ton of fun!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

One of our absolute favorite swimming holes is this one in Oxford County. It’s part of a larger gorge and features a hidden waterfall and lots of secret places to explore.
