The Natural Swimming Hole At Smalls Falls In Maine Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days

Is there anything more gloriously Maine than jumping into a body of water on a hot afternoon? There’s just one important thing to keep in mind! We love the coastal beaches, but the best thing for a refreshing dunk is a lake, river or swimming hole. We all know that ocean water is prohibitively cold (except, apparently, to the brave folks from away) so enjoying these other options makes for a fun day you can actually enjoy. And this swimming hole near Rangeley is one of our favorites!
