The Clearest Lake In Maine, Echo Lake, Is Almost Too Beautiful To Be Real

Many people imagine Maine’s beautiful, craggy coast when thinking about enjoying the nature of Maine. We can’t disagree that it’s gorgeous. But the inland lakes offer something just as special. In fact, you can enjoy some of the best of the state without even stepping foot near the coast. One example is this beautiful lake. Located near Acadia National Park, it’s crystal-clear and offers a great respite from the crowds of people that head to the park each year.
