A beautiful, remote lake in Acadia National Park

Take a dip at Echo Lake in Acadia National Park! It's a small beach that's best driven to and easily park-able once you arrive. It's a refreshing stop for swimming that's right off of the beat and path. There are many campgrounds that rest upon the shores of Echo Lake if you want to be right on the water!

Parking is easy - just drive as far as you can and park in a space that is not affiliated with the campground.
