The Swimming Hole In Maryland That Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days
Love a good swimming hole? While all of Maryland’s lakes are man-made, that doesn’t make them any less beautiful or any less perfect for a dip. One such place is Hunting Creek Lake at Cunningham Falls State Park. Head here for a day among nature and cool off in one of the most scenic ways possible.
Cunningham Falls State Park is located in the town of Thurmont.
Many people head here to see the impressive Cunningham Falls, which is Maryland's longest cascading waterfall.
You can also check out the historic iron furnace or hike the area trails that are full of rustic sights.
Need to cool off after all of that exploring? You're in luck! The park has a lake where you can take a dip on a hot day.
You can swim between Memorial Day and Labor Day and lifeguards will be on duty Tuesday through Sunday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Try to arrive early because this spot can get crowded during summer.
Enjoy the lake, complete with a sandy bottom and surrounding mountain views. What better way to take in nature in one of Maryland's most outdoorsy areas?
